The photo is technically perfect, although I would personally have chosen a different pose. At the moment the arm is conflicting a bit with the face.

I disagree with Alfred
this shot is right on, good lighting and fill, the arm?
as far as I concerned it's perfect!

Thanks to all who have commented. The pose was carefully planned out. Our goal was to emulate the 1940's Hollywood light and pose.

I did learn long ago in portraiture that you cannot please everyone. Photography and portraiture in particular brings out strongly held emotions in people.

My daughter is a tough customer and is hard to please, she liked it, so all is well :-)

Great portrait!

Excellent lighting, and how lucky are you to have such a great subject as part of your family? I spent some time browsing through your photos, and you have a great eye for composition and do a nice job of taking advantage of the vivid color rendition of the Olympus cameras. Great work!
