I like this shot a lot. The background, the composition and the color, great work.
I dunno...the light looks very yellow...the background is competing with her, since it is a very busy pattern of wallpaper...for me the white balance/hue is hard to get past...everything's just so yellow-tinged...I dunno...the shot's just not quite coming together for me...just my thoughts.
Needs some fill flash and the background is much too bright. Would have really liked to see eye contact in this shot too.
Lighting, background, pose, all could be substantially improved. Color is off, light not very flattering, nor is pose. Background is quite poor. Is that a hat under her hair? Why is it there? Does not look 'professional' to my eye.
Whole thing needs to be re-thought.
Photographic posing is different, whether you want to hear it or not.
Photographic posing is different. Don't ask for criticism if you don't want to hear it. The problem with the pose is that it's difficult to light.
Well that's your loss. I certainly know more about photography than you do, so what could you possibly learn from me? Besides, others have made similar comments. Making negative comments about me won't make your photo any better.
Your ego will prevent you from learning. Learn to let go and accept qualified criticism.
One of the problems with the pose is the girl's left leg. It looks foreshortened and awkward, sort of "stump-like". It would be better to have her left leg straight, like the other one.
Did you read and understand my comments? Look at her left leg. I added a comment about it. My comments were strictly about the photograph, not about you. Take note of that.
Adding the funny face won't make the photo any better. Her left leg still looks like a stump.
Yes, but you asked photographers. We see things with a different, more sophisticated eye. Posing is not what you think it is. You have to take into consideration perspective and the fact that three-dimensional vision is different from a photograph.
For the purposes of explaining things, to keep it simple, at your level of comprehension, I am saying that "people in the fitness industry" won't see these things, the things that photographers, photographic experts, and I see.
