I was called in for a last minute shoot and this is what I got. The client needed some pictures for a contest of her own but was nice enough to let me use one of the shots for this challenge.

Natural light coming in from the upper right side of the frame and a reflector held opposite to that.

Beautiful depth of field. Nicely exposed. The skin looks so natural. 6 from me.

She looks cold. The black in the back of her dress is something I noticed immediately. I am not sure if it is part of the dress, but it throws it off. The lighting looks a little flat also. But I love the idea and with a couple of adjustments, I think this picture could really have some WOW factor!

Good bokeh good sharpness and lighting i feel the models placing of the hands and arms arent quite right i think a better angle too shoot from and try different position with the model might help ..well done
