Here is a photo of Natalie Beth. The photos were taken one after another. The photo on the left had an extra light on the right to shine through the umbrella and the photo on the right did not have the light on the right on. That question sort of has a "right" feel to it.
Anyway, the question, is which is best?
Cheers,
rfs

Split the difference. Lower the power of the light going through the umbrella so there is just a hink of shadow. The shadows are too pronounced. The other shot looks good as well, but I like the idea of some shadows coming through the umbrella.

FWIW - Between the two shown, the right hand one is my preference. However, I think James' idea - reshoot, with a more subtle shadow - is probably good.

I have posted it several places. It is currently on PhotoSig for example.

Here is another Natalie shot from the same session.

Both are nice, complimentary photographs of the model. As an oil paint on canvas artist, I'm more readily drawn to the image casting a pattern from the umbrella--it's all about texture.

You made the same post here a while ago.
I prefer the one on the right.
The shadows are too distracting.

I think the shadows are too distracting...if you Have to have the shadow...I agree with lowering the power of the light to soften the pattern.
