    You guys probably think I'm some sorta freak (I am, in a way ;) ), but I really enjoy the female body form. I also enjoy photographing cool cars (Americal Classics, prefer.) and rare watches. Never really had a knack for scenery, although. Took a few good ones before, but, as Russians say, 'even a broom fires once a year.' Anyhow, here's a link to a pic that I had you guys critique before:

    and here's what I came up with:

    http://i19.ebayimg.com/05/i/08/91/02/cc_10.JPG

    I know i could have cropped under the line, but I really wanted her lips there. Next time, I'll take it differently, but I am trying to salvage an otherwise decent shot.

    I think one of the problems is the amount of noise in the original, and with your B&W conversion and processing, you've made the whole shot blurry - if you're selling the watch you might want to get that in focus.

    Try something like neatimage to get rid of the noise, you can get a free trial to check it out, but it only works on max 1024 res, the full version does the lot.

    The other thing that struck me is that she appears to be purposefully covering her breast, and it doesn't look comfortable or natural - I think it's the angle of her elbow that is quite tight that throws it off balance for me, might be worth trying her hand a little lower to relax the angle.

    Beautiful model though, and I'm sure that you'll have plenty of opportunity for more practice.

    You're absolutely right, I have told her to relax more... We take such awesome shots when she feels natural. BTW, fofrog to mention, I am not looking at this one as a watch ad anymore, this is for personal collection. Should've said that before, sorry!
