    Honestly? I think this is a swing and a miss. The first issue is that the model's face is in deep shadow, probably 3 full stops below the highlights on her bust, arms and legs which means that the viewer's eye is pulled to those spots, vice resting on her face. Next is her pose: Leaning away from the camera makes her thigh/knee area much larger in relation to her body than her face, and lastly (and this is purely a personal taste thing) IMO, sepia-esque tones just never make people look good. Black & white mono, or colour would have made this stronger I think.

    Noted.

    Keep in mind, I've been out of the game for the better part of a decade. I will have some technical misses as I knock the rust off. I am aware of the pose elements you brought up but I really liked the shot despite that, my only complaint was the DoF failure.

    Can't say I'm a fan. I agree with John's comments.
