Many thanks to my wonderful model, Yasmin Al Tellawy (she's on Model Mayhem, and she's amazing!). One speedlite on the bg, one in a reflective umbrella on her. Fiddled with saturation, boosted eyes with curves, made bg a brighter white, d/b.

Kinda stock-photo-y, but technically sound. I hope to get at least a 6.

And I guess it's DNMC 'cuz she's not really as ditzy as this photo looks.

"beauty queen" is likely to be just a mask and not her personality...
good photo technically wise.

Finally a shot that shows me personality. I like how you've boxed her in.

Looks fun and vibrant. I like the colors and even though there is plenty to look at, it blends very well together. (having two daughters though, I'm starting to panic at my future....)

The composition is good. Fashionwise the shoes doen't quite match lol, but I'm not a fashion expert either. I think the look on her face (prolly looking at a mirror) is pretty good here also.
