Expert glamour photography that reminds me of a shoot a decade ago of actress Penelope Cruz! The framing of the shot and the pose both are in synch to draw the viewer to the face with the impact of the alluring eyes made greater by masterful makeup. The wardrobe and choice of accessories also add to the framing of the upper body and head in this shot. The use of the magenta background contrasts perfectly with the model's darker complexion. This combined with the nicely assymetrical contrast between the right and left sides in terms of lighting gives its a subtle dynamic. An excellent shot!

i see why you've chosen this model--she comes off as very dark in her photos, very edgy. this shows some versatility from you. have you 2 thought of doing a dark-/gothic-themed shoot?

I think this is good conservative editing. I like the background and can even see a bit of grain by the signature, and also I like how your left armpit actually looks normal instead of some oil painted body part. I hate super overly edited photos where people in general look like oil paintings *cough* playboy photo editors *cough* The Black top and the gloves and the dark hair give a good contrast to the top and bottom of the canvas so the eyes stay in focus with yours.

I dig it dudette.

I like more conservative edits too, but I also like perfection! so I guess we need to find a place where those two meet :P
when a photoshoot is for my portfolio I can do whatever I want with the editing but when it is for a client they have several demands, like "do my skin perfect, I don't want not even one pore on that skin!" so I have to obey!
In this photo the editing might seem conservative but it was pretty heavy too :P
