This photo is a possible ad for a cosmetic company. They wanted something very simple and sexy. They wanted the picture to show almost a sculpture like pose. Please let me know what you think of the model, pose, and anything that can help a possible retake or change of direction for this ad. Thank you.

I hope you don't take this the wrong way, im just trying to be helpful but it looks quite amateurish.
Perhaps using a proper backdrop and using lights that shape her body not a uniform flat light which when greyscaled does just that, gives the whole shot a nondescript grey tone.

Just my toughts, hope they help.

Iron the background and get away from it some. and the top right corner needs to be filled with the background.

Now those two things you can do in Photoshop. Blur the wrinkles some and clone some background in in that corner.

You can porbably mess around with a Curves adjustment layer to make it not look so flat.

The shadow on the background could be tough to deal with though. Perhaps you can clone some good background in there or dodge it a bit.

You never posted how it went with the last batch of cosmetic company ads you posted looking for comments on...?

Same basic comment on this shot as those - this model needs to go.
