This photo wasn't really on my radar when we did the shoot but I heard from the model this morning and she is telling me that all of the people she has talked with are crazy about this photo so I thought I would put it up and see what the group thinks.

C & C Please

OK David, I'll be the first to weigh in on this one. Please understand most people will like this image but you've asked for an image critique here.

From a photographic perspective, the composition is too tight (did you crop it this way) and cuts off the little finger of her left hand and a lot of the elbow area. Traditionally, you don't have to have the entire arm in there but a crop lower on the arm/torso might be better. Also, the light is flat and not very interesting.

From the model's side, if she really wants to model, she needs to let those nails grow and get a manicure. She's a very pretty girl but the smile looks a little like she was caught in the middle of it.

Keep shooting...

I agree that she needs to let her finger nails grow and also would have told her to remove the watch. It looks like one of those cheaper off brands from a department store and doesn't help with any kind of glamour effect. There isn't anything wrong with cropping off through part of the elbow as this is not the focus of the image, but keeping her entire left hand would have been an improvement and also having her pose without the right hand coming from her face. The lighting is not flat as it certainly shows more light from her back and goes darker at the right side of her face. The complexion on her face could be cleaned up a little also.

Guys:

Thanks for your comments and I will definitely keep them in mind. One thing I did not mention in this post is this young lady is a nationally ranked swimmer and tennis player. She also does promotional events and department store fashion shows. She is cure with a wonderful personality and I have a feeling at this point in her life the "girly-girly" things are not something she thinks about every day. I work with her quite a bit and I will share these comments with her and I am sure she will be grateful.

Thanks again.

Indeed I understand the sporty aspect but maybe next time her hands shouldn't be such a prominent factor in the shot, and the placement is juxtaposed in a bad way.

Ps. Closed mouths are best.
