  4. Wonderful, nice B-W portrait. Her hair does blend to the background in some areas.

    Beautiful. I couldn't do so well.

    The hair light does seem a little off, as others have noted. I think it ended up lighting her right shoulder, which I don't like. The shadows on her left forearm aren't as smooth as in the rest of the shot.

    I think I would have liked to have seen her body angled one way or the other away from the camera... it is a lovely shot and the bit of blending in the hair doesn't bother me at all; I do that intentionally some times :)  nice work!
     
  8. I really like it. Very classy shot.
