    I like the overexposure on this one. I think it adds glamour. Wish some of the details of the wall stayed though, love what it did to the stairs. Always a fan of your work.... and models.

    Sorry, to say, I don't care for this for two reasons.
    There is perspective distortion making her legs look larger and more prominent in the picture. (they take up about a third the width of the picture and their arrangement is quite awkward)
    The picture is quite soft, probably due to shooting at 1/13 and getting some motion.

    actually he shot at 1/80th not 1/13th and at only 40mm (or even 60) it should be fine.

    Sorry, a drop-out.
    There is still some softness in the shot.

    Thanks for the replies. Softness? On the final image, I did soften the skin a little. But tell me, on the final image, did you look more on the clothing or on the model and its surroundings?

    the second photo is great! awsome contrast between the background and the model. not soft or too sharp...just right =) fantastic job with the post-processing, exactly what the photo needed!
