Wow...Shay is one hell of a good looking woman. Lovely portrait with nice smooth tones and excellent lighting. 7

Nice portrait, I feel like the crop should either come up a little to frame the face more or go down a little to include the v in her shirt.

Nice portrait, not being offensive but I'd have cropped above her chest as it does draw my attention away from her face

Okay...I'll join the chorus....there are a couple of nice highlights in this photo but not the one's you are thinking. Her eyes are beautiful and the sharpness of the focus does wonders highlighting them. Great shot even if it was cropped more at the bottom. And that says heaps coming from me!

Beautiful model, though the expression seems like she is bored.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 11:08:04 PM
the catchlights look plain weird, like she has robotic eyes. everything else is fine.

03/15/2009 10:26:44 PM
Intense eyes. Nice lighting. The black spots on her lips bother me. Nice skin tones.

Love the back light.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great lighting here. Nice catch lights in the eyes really makes the eyes stand out. I love the definition in the hair.

where's the focus at? :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 04:46:22 PM
her strangly parted lips are very unusual. Nice even lighting and a good commercial-type shot though

Beautiful model, well lit, sharp piercing eyes ... what's not to like?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 09:59:41 PM
4 Lights! nice balance between all of them! the only thing is that her skin is just a little too smooth nad her eyes just too much white and overprocessed.IMO

03/14/2009 07:26:13 PM
Good portrait. I am sure the guys will vote high on this one, but good job keeping the focus on her eyes.

Gorgeous, both the model and the image. I am held by those eyes and her generous curves.

I recognise this lighting pattern, I really like how your tri-reflector brings those eyes out. Lovely hair lights both side really makes the hair look healthy and alive. Great eye contact to form a conection as well. Because of all the fill you're getting a very flat lighting but you're still getting those cheek bones defined so all in all very good.

Interesting catch lights. Very nice portrait.

Shay is beautiful and you've done a good work here... I'm not crazy about the four catchlights in her eyes, though.

I like the reflection of the lights on the eyes. Good portrait, good skin tone color.

Very nice composition and lighting, I do notice 3 catchlights in the models eyes, perhaps want to clone them to a single perhaps. ^7

Nice even lighting, beautiful girl. Lighting pattern in her eyes is interesting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:48:06 PM
Well executed example of a straight-up portrait. Her eyes bore into me ... a little scarry ... am I worthy of such scrutiny?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 04:24:27 PM
Beautiful eyes. Her smile looks half open, half closed.

excellent portrait very nice colors and tones...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:58:12 PM
nice portrait, but in my opinion the crop is wrong. either it should be below her breasts to show them off, or above them. as it is now it's feel incomplete. i like the light though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:18:21 PM
a good photo of an attractive model - but looks a bit too much like stock photography to stand out in a challenge like this
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 11:41:29 AM
very nice lighting. 3 lights plus reflector I'm guessing (maybe a fourth as hair light). some nitpicks that would make this an absolute stand-out - I would clone out the multiple catchlights, the crop right on the chest doesn't work well, and her right bra strap is twisted. Pluses - lighting, makeup, skin processing (not overdone, but very smooth), and her eyes are not oversharpened! Very well done! 8.

The only thing that is distracting for me in this shot is the four catchlights in her eyes

Striking eyes.

Feels more like a 'head-shot' that a creative image.

Beautiful lighting! Lovely portrait.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:32:56 AM
Nicely lit portrait, but it seems like either her makeup is too heavy or the skin processing is a bit much.
