Firstly, the good stuffs. This is way above the curve in the quality stakes. There are some pretty high benchmarks set on dA already and this blows the competition out of the water. The tones are remarkable, the pose is dynamic, the cropping and framing are extremely good, not to mention the level of professionalism in the photography. This would be a great photograph in any category, let alone as a stock resource! A gem to be found by any artist looking for high quality stock.

But...

The lens flare, completely and utterly, ruins this image. It is unnecessary and cheapens the overall effect. If it wasn't such an obvious photoshop filter then maybe it would be less intrusive, but because this is a stock image, it's a really unwelcome addition. Stock imagery should allow the artist the freedom to use the stock in any way possible but in this case, if I were to use the stock, and looking through your gallery there are a couple I will be using in the future, the first thing I would have to do would be to remove the lens flare. Luckily there's not much on the model herself, so not too time consuming. But please, there is no need to use the flares, your photography is really way too good to be ruined by it!

Such a small detail sullying an otherwise outstanding stock image. I shall watch your gallery with interest, I have a feeling you will produce some really captivating work.
