Shot with rim light and a gold reflector. Let me know what you think.

I don't see any signs of a rim light on the model. Pose looks a little awkward and the expression, if looks could kill, this might be it. The over all lighting works and the exposure is good.

Rule 10 image.

I don't like the arm. It seems awkward and draw you out of the picture.

I should have been a bit more specific. It was the arrangement I sometimes use for rim lighting: strobe bounced into a collapsed umbrella.

I agree that the arm needs focus for improvement in the future. This perhaps is part of the reason for the look on her face too. As I tried to replicate what she's doing in the photo with my own arm I can only imagine how uncomfortable she might have been at that moment. Since the arm is coming somewhat toward the camera its also creating an enlarging effect of her hand and forearm. One other observation is the shadow created by the same arm on the brick behind it. I think because it's straight and narrow it contributes to the awkward look of the arm. I know I've been going on and on about the arm, but I'm mostly just thinking out loud as I figure out why it looks odd.

I like how you balanced the light so that the details through the window are still visible instead of completely blown out (a lot of people miss this). Though I think you probably could have had a better exposure there with a little more work.

I would have liked to see a little more of her left arm instead of just the knuckles, and perhaps centered her a little more on the wall so that her chest didn't stick out into the window light.

The exposure is good and it appears to me to fall off a little as you move to the bottom of the photo, which is good. It helps keep the attention towards her face.

Thanks for sharing the photo!
I'm sure you'll even better than this next time around!

And I was going to insert an image for the rule 10 photo but it doesn't seem to be working at the moment..

Lens setting at 22mm, which is the main reason the arm looks larger.
I always tell my wife... zoom way in, and step way back.

Yep. Unfortunately, my aperture choices to catch the window detail were limited, so I had to come in closer.

Actually, her right arm would not have looked quite so odd if I had rotated around to my right some to catch more of her left arm. The position of her arms is intentional, as is the expression on her face. This is meant to be more of an editorial-style shot than a glamour shot. The arms and facial expression are meant to give the picture some tension.

The model had a baby a month ago, by the way. I think she got back in pretty good shape, considering.

You guys are a tough crowd (which is why I get critique here). I put this up at photo.net and it is getting rave reviews. Your comments echo what I found wrong with the picture. I was pleased with the control of the exposure and the lines do exactly what I was hoping for.

Thanks for the input, it is very useful.
