Another B&W conversion this time of Miss Chelsie. I like the image but at the same time something about it disturbs me and I can't put my finger on it.

I would first like to say that your model is stunningly beautiful with the most gorgeous eyes I've seen in a long time.

The lighting to me appears face on and a little flat but that's not the problem as huge ring lights are used in fashion photography.

What I think you are seeing is an effect of lens distortion caused by you having the camera in the portrait format and slightly tilted back.

When I'm making portrait images using ether film or digital capture I have a double bubble level mounted on the camera to give me both horizontal and vertical levels.

[/ QUOTE ]

I think you've got a makeup issue. For some reason, my eye keeps getting drawn to her lower eyelids. I don't think the eyeliner on her lower lids is flattering. It's gone beyond defining the lid and into the realm of "dark circles under the eyes". The lower lid appears to be twice as thick as the upper lid and I think it makes the eyes look a little puffy. Another contributing factor: Her right eye appears larger than her left eye, yet her left eyebrow looks larger/fuller than her right eyebrow. So you've got the smaller-appearing eyebrow above the larger-appearing eye and vice-versa.

One final observation: The lighting is really flat, and you've lit the broad side of her face. As a result, there's not a lot of three-dimensionality to her face. You've got great texture and subtle shadow on her collar bones, shoulders, and neck but it all disappears on her face, particularly the right side under her right eye. Swinging your light over towards your right side (so that the light comes from image right) would have given better shadow definition to the right side of her face and really enhanced those lovely cheekbones.

Mayeb her shoulders filling the frame is too strong. More of a male type of pose. Maybe try turning her shoulders away from the camera.
