    I agree on the elbow cropping, but overall, very nice. Nice choice of model, pose, etc. The exposure and color are great, too.

    Not bad. As mentioned already, too bad about the elbow - otherwise, I think it's pretty good. :)


    BTW, I don't think you could have gotten all of the lines straight without a tilt/shift lens.
    The vertical line on the right side is straight, and the horizontal line going through her shoulders is straight too.
    All of the other lines are off because of distortion caused by the lens.

    Yeah, that too. If you had shot her straight on they would have been mostly straight, but if you looked hard enough you would still likely find a little distortion. I don't think what you have is bad though.

    You might try cropping off the top line, just to get some more space between the (new top) line and the edge of the frame. I think that would make it less noticable.
