Model lying on the floor. Natural light, silver reflector down by the waist on the right side. Bothers me I didn't get the angle exactly right so the image feels unbalanced.

post: A 1? 3's? I don't know why I continue to submit to this site. Pathetic.

nice model not her fault more shadow detail or less negative space a whif hair detail would fix this

Well composed and the lighting/exposure is right on. I do find the distinct difference between her eyes/mouth and the rest of her face to be a little unsettling. I understand you were trying to highlight those areas by keeping them sharp but IMO it's a tad too much difference between sharp and soft. Good luck in the challenge.

love the softness of the light and the sharpness on the eyes - not TOO overdone

Very nice and professionally done image. Good lighting. The face seems maybe a bit too soft or bordering on that "plastic-like" look, but otherwise well done.

Nice portrait but because of the angle it kind of looks like a disembodied head. 6

This really is perfect. Her makeup is subtle and you enhanced it with divine lighting. This could not be a better portrait.
