Thank you to my lovely Wife for basically doing anything I asked her to do. We had a bunch of really good images from this shoot, but this one really stood out for us because you can see the catch-lights in her eyes over the sunglasses and also the reflection of her body in the lenses of the glasses.

Converted from RAW
Used a healing brush to fix a couple facial wrinkles and remove a couple obvious freckles.
Added border

meh. sorry, the focus is off and your image doesn't say anything to me. nor do the reflections which are rather busy.

I like the use of the sunglasses to reflect other parts of the body. Lighting seems a little flat, and turning the model a little to the side would help to create more shadows. Maybe a partial desaturation leaving the glasses in colour.

I do miss a bit of focus here. the reflections are nice

Very interesting take on the challenge. I like how the nudity is implied and when you look closely at the reflections, it becomes even more obvious. Nice setup. The lighting is a bit harsh and this may have more appeal in black and white.

I think this photo would have been better with a different reflection coming from the glasses.

almost a snapshot look to this shot. Not sure what would have helped. Maybe a rose or flower in front???

Chair is distracting. Would have been nice to fill the eyeglasses with legs.

I amnever sure if a straight on view of the figure is the right way to go,but I see your idea in this 7

pretty neat.

Interesting idea. Might have been more effective if you'd concentrated more on the glasses.

good crop and pose, thouhh i had preferre to see a little more of her eyes. natural skin tones. orange border and irregular background are distracting.

Very intriguing shot. I like the reflections in the sunglasses, but I don't like that I can see part of her eyes. I would have I think prefereed the glasses up a bit higherto hide that, but still show the reflection. Good Luck

I really like the reflections in the glasses, The only thing I would have tried is to only see glasses and not the the tops of the eyes. Very nice work, 6.

A hint of anonymity, AND good use of props - well done!
