cinematically melodramatic. I consider that a good thing. real emotion carved from gloss.

Very moody and dramatic, i like it. However, if your light source were positioned a bit higher, you could have eliminated that harsh neckline shadows cast by her shoulder.

Very intense. Waxy chin and nose take a bit away from this shot, but overall it emotes a very eerie sense. Might be a hair too much light on her face, but this is a fantastic shot.
