    I love it, as is!!! Don't change a thing!

    The mole gives her character, the processing is moody to go along with her expression and her darker face, and the crop adds to the sort of "blase" feel she's giving off.

    PRINT THAT MOTHER! :biggrin:

    I love it as is too! Also helped me with my previous post. I like the mole too, They say moles are "beauty marks."

    thnx for the input.....However, still there is scope for such contrast....as u know the difference of contrast on body and face, using black reflector u cud tone down this on her back to some extent....May be taken for future reference.

    It's a very nice image! Leave the mole - it's natural and a unique part of your beautiful GF. Excellent exposure, light, colours, tone. I think the inclusion of the pants make a simple and effective anchor.

    I actually quite like the contrast between her face and back; the fact it separates them so starkly gives the shot tension and looks great imo - almost like she was on a fashion shoot and someone took away the glamorous clothes and what shes left with no-longer matches what’s on her face and she's left feeling a bit awkward/incomplete. The flat facial expression adn lack of eye contact works well for that too.

    If you see what I'm getting at. Hard to describe what I mean exactly, hopefully making some sense :confused:, but I think the shot works really well.

    p.s. leave the mole, it only enhances it that.
