Wasn´t going to enter this challenge but I felt I had to at least try for my WPL teammates so I scraped together a photoshoot last minute, don´t think I will improve my score this week but you never know unless you try, right?

Anyway, this is Ingibjörg, she was available on short notice, was lucky on that part since there are only a few days till christmas and Icelanders are notoriously busy the days before it. Have photographed her before but not for DPC. Thought she was perfect for this challenge as right now she is lightening her hair from dark to blonde so it´s currently hazle brown. Also she has a nice tan and although it doesn´t show in this picture but she has brown eyes too, did a couple of shot´s that show that better but I thought this was best for the challenge.

Henny came along as usual and did the hair and makeup. Lit with 3 lights, one right in front of her, another two for hairlights.

Post processing minimal, just standard raw conversion, levels, curves, shadow/highlights with a strong setting on the highlights part and finally sharpened after resizing. Did a hue/saturation sepia layer with low opacity too to get rid of a very slight reddish hue to the shot.

Good picture. I don't particularly like the tongue, however I can see why you did it, so thats just a personal preference. Nice lighting however.

This looks like a neat picture but something about her mouth really bugs me. Is that her tongue on the side? I am assuming it is supposed to look like she is licking her lips? but it seems out of place and like a distraction.

Mmmh, it makes me smile, the tongue is not in a good position imo, nice lighting though!

I think that the tongue distracts from the picture. makes her look like she has something wrong with her teeth. Open mouthed with just the hint of tongue would be nice. Otherwise I like the lighting and the pose.

Is that her tongue? At first I thought there was something on her teeth and it's really distracting to me.

The lighting and composition are excellent. Your model is beautiful. I think the big earring detracts. Simpler would have been better. I give it a 7.

Her tounge looks like she's got a big wad of gum in her mouth at first glance. I would have liked this even better without that, maybe just a smile... Good composition though
