    Don't know what you are trying to say with that picture. But, I'm afraid if I said it, my mouth would have to be washed out with soap.

    What is "Portraiture brief with Glasses."?

    The lines formed by the neck, edge of face and shoulders are at the slightest diagonal. Did you consider a slight clock-wise rotation? Just enough to give these lines a bit greater angel... a bit less stagnant.

    Just a thought.

    Good choice of model. I'm not totally sold on the choice of frames.

    Nice placement of lighting.

    Yeah the brief included a set of paper glasses, which we were to shoot a portrait with.

    This was shot with the available window light only, that inspired me to shoot that particular image.

    The background is too busy which detracts from the main subject - Other than that a good attempt.

    What brief, and who are "we?"

    I'm not getting what this was. Was it a school assignment?

    Thanks.
