    Does this photograph have a commercial feel? Thank you for looking, and thank you for all response and suggestions.

    This has a very strong commercial, feel. Definitely one I would have chosen of the set. The subject has an execellent pose with emotion that really draws in the viewer, especially to the facial expression. This is an excellent quality. The big drawback is the car in the background which really reduces the effect I think you are looking for. If it is ok with you I would like to show you a crop that I believe really draws out the commerical feel!

    You are doing some excellent work!

    This is just my opinion of making the picture more emotional / dramatic. It is just much easier to show than explain, thanks for letting me share this idea.

    The commercial aspect of a shot is a tough deal. More often then not you are at the mercy of the AD, editor and subject. Keep in mind that they are paying for YOUR vision of the shot.

    I think the model and lighting and exposure is there. Personally; the horizontal lines behind her are killing me.

    Its got a commercial feel, but I'm asking one major question about it. What exactly are you selling?
