    I suggest for next time, that you don't frame that tight.
    You could allow a little space between the right breast and the upper border, and same thing for the right border.
    So if you take the photo a step backward, it will be peeerfect.
    Otherwise the lighting is quite good, the photo gains a bit of "mystery". A kind of modern era Snow White sleeping waiting for better days (and, as an option, a charming prince).
    Have fun!

    I like the main light. Somehow her arm looks strange. Maybe a bounce card or it's own light. Detail the set up and we will be able to help further.

    I like this shot overall, shows the beauty of the female body. I think the crop is a little tight, the skin tone looks yellowish to me. Nice work otherwise.

    If you post a link to the original image, I'm sure you'd get a bunch of takers to try their hand at edits. Many of us enjoy the challenge, even if it's not our own work.

    This isn't any "better", as a lot depends on taste here, but this is one idea:

    [​IMG]

    I did it in Photoshop. I'm not familiar with the current Paint Shop Pro, but I remember it being pretty good so you should be able to do the same simple edits: increase contrast and adjust black/white points with levels and curves; adjust color by R+4, B+15; sharpen; crop.

    Personally, I think yours above would work well by simply not cropping at the top quite so close, and prefer it to what I did.
