The lighting is awesome on this shot. I concur with Bear, yet still gave it a 7.......Nice work!

by nice I mean I like it and I don't often comment on the model poses (nor, obviously, do I take them so coming from me is different than what some of the ofther professionals might tell you).
But to me the lighting is perfect, the dof works, the composition is excellent and it's very tasteful. I'm surprised this didn't do better.

I gave this an "8". It's a very classy, well done portrait. I'm actually stunned at your score. You are justifiably disappointed. Hard to understand.

It's comments like these I appreciate.

FWIW, the white sign in the background was edited out of the image I submitted months ago to the bar owner, but the Jim Beam bar napkin holder was not.

This image is about details, and most are great. But why, o why didn't you get rid of that tiny bit across her iris which makes it look like she's not looking at the camera????

I ALWAYS looked for this in EVERY hotel bar I entered. I NEVER found anything remotely close - at least until I was several drinks in . . . 8
