    I like the idea you have, but the flat lighting and strong falloff look like they were done with a scanner (especially the first one).

    I like the second one the best because of the curves and lines. However, IMHO your hands appear to be 'gripping' too tightly making the veins and sinews stand out too much. Try a softer 'grip' or soften in PP.
    As an aside, you'll have trouble finding a better model than yourself:thumbup:

    I like the second and third one. The hand on the neck is very feminine.

    I'm thinking a bronzing color would be a good effect. Just a thought.

    I can't say that I am sick of looking at the model ;) :lovey: hehe

    I have to agree with Sw1tchFx though...

    I think #2 is the best of the three, mainly due to the pose

    I like it but not as much as the B/W. I still think you need to relax the hand so the tendons(?) don't show, but you are a very talented girl

    Try running a soft layer and then adding sharpness to add detail like hair, and other parts.

    You can also burn/dodge to get rid of "normal" skin marks. Lets face it, any beauty pictures are highly edited.

    The soft layer will smooth the skin (and hands) and maybe help go after what you are looking for?
