Hi James,

I stumbled across this image when I went to browse you site after finding the Meridith photos. I really like this one much better than the ones that brought me here. The near nudes are nice as well, but for my taste this is much more interesting. Great work all around.

REX, this is a great photo! Beautiful. How could anyone score this image less than '6'. That's the BS that goes on here that drove me away. This is an easy '9' in my book, and I'm a tough scorer. Hope all is well, great to see you're still takin' great pix.

I always love a natural pose with natural smile portrait. You maintained the details very well. Very lovely composition too. One little tiny winny thing: Maybe you can sharpen or add more contrast on her eyes ^.~ She has beautiful eyes indeed.

Great portrait dude; nice insight- really natural but professional style.

I love how you can still see the texture in her skin. Very natural and elegant. I think maybe a little bit of dodging on her eyes would have given them a nice pop.

Very well done ... how does it look converted to B&W or duotone ?

Simple but effective shot, nice lighting on the face and muted background blends well with the hood.

This is good, but I think a few enhancements would make it shine. (such as sharpening just her eyes and increasing their contrast, and darkening the background a bit)

What a hottie! That aside, I think some curves around her eyes, maybe even some dodging would have made her face stand out even more than it does. a tighter crop on the left would have been nice too. But good shot, 6.
