    Well it was color, I just duplicate the OG layer and made the top layer B&W then kept color in here eyes. I was using my stock lens. 18-55

    Tell me what I could have done different.

    Also am I making these pis to big for what is preferred on this forum???

    Was this done using direct on-the-camera flash? You can see the hard shadow cast from her face onto her body and her left arm onto the carpet. Possibly use a diffuser or bounce the flash (assuming that you want to avoid this ;-) )

    I like the picture, it's a good expression on her and the play with angles is really fun here!

    Did you color her eyes blue and/or correct red-eye in Photoshop? It's subtle, I only saw the color when I zoomed in!...

    On Camera flash, YES!

    Good points thank you.

    I did not touch a thing on this photo excpet in PS I deleted the B&W on here eyes (Top layer) Just to reveal how pretty her eyes are.

    I like this subtle use of selective color, she does have very pretty eyes :)

    Thank you!
    I plan on looking into this bounce flash.
