Technically perfect shot, nice composition, good lighting, very attactive model. I would have cropped away a bit of the top of the image.

Personal tastes?

Hi Domagoj, I don't disagree with Alfred . I do love the choice of background that you have chosen for this shot. Having said that, would have liked to see some other examples of your shoot with her, showing more of this setting in Landscape format. The difference between the models smooth skin and what looks like an industrial setting lighting and sync work very well for me too Perhaps the model will get past her shyness and the two of you will come up with some truly imaginative shots. I must also chastise my fellow MYOLYMPUS members for having taken the time to view this beautiful image so many time and can't be bothered to leave any comments constructive or otherwise! Shame, shame this is a sharing site as Alfred has reminded us so many times. Again good stuff Domagoj.

Beautiful shot! I like the off kilter composition and the desaturated look of the processing. This really showcases what a fantastic lens the Sigma 30MM f1.4 is - great separation from the background, but still quite sharp wide open. The model's expression and eye contact are really enhance the image.
