    Ali: both images are stunning, I have to agree with Sara, that B&W one well I could go on, and on about it, every thing about it is beautiful.

    Cheers:

    That B&W image is just breath-taking- beautiful capture of a beautiful woman- hard to stop looking at it. The color photo is clever and intriguing, but the light on the model's face and clothing is just a bit harsh to me, and the focus on her face a bit soft.

    I hope you will continue to post more of your work.

    Re: Portrait

    Ali, I like them both a lot, however, I wish you had included a second light source in the first picture. We would like to see the model's left eye and enough light to see all the contours of her face. Here is an opportunity to have a "fill" light which would illuminate her entire face, (but to a "soft" amount), and then the key light (the position you have one light now) becomes the main modeling light.

    Nevertheless, the first image is stunning just as it is.

    I am envious of your idea in the second image. Congratulations on a job well done!

    That B&W shot is amazing, really really nice picture. I like it that you can't see the other eye and think that just adds to the overall feel of the picture.

    I agree with this completely...the merest sugestion of the other side of her face would benefit this lovely picture no end.

    Love the B&W. If it were mine, I would leave it as is. I think it gives the viewer a feeling of wanting to see more.Love the use of light and the catchlight is amazing!

    Really love the first one. No extra lighting needed, it works perfectly just as it is.

    Don't like the second one as the lighting is wrong. The glow is above her hand yet the top of her hand is in shade and the underside of her hand is illuminated.
