    It's nice but there are two main thinks that bother me:

    1.) the shadows on her face and body (especially that one from her nose and then the shadow-situation around her right shoulder)

    2.) I don't get anything from her the way she looks "in the sky".
    You should have tried a more sensual look directly in the camera or so, this looks a little like "day-dreaming", but not in the best way....

    The lighting seem too hard/harsh. The shadow on the right side (our left) of her face looks too sharp.

    The message seems a bit confusing. Are these fashion shots? If so...the lighting seems way to dramatic. If these are artistic, form studies etc...then the dramatic lighting is more appropriate...but then the make-up & wardrobe seem out of place.

    Adding a reflector to the shaddow side would soften the shaddows and clean up the image

    I too find the lighting a bit too harsh. The reflector actually should have solved that. It would also have added a lot more presence if the model had looked into the camera. And the black part of the dress lacks details. Nag nag nag... :)

    The lighting is too hard and the model has no feeling about her. Slouchy and bored.

    To the very basic, fashion shots are supposed to emphasize the clothes. I don't see that happening here.
