Another great shot, a little more moodier lighting than with Laura, but it's well woth looking at.

Just a suggestion, maybe you might crop the bottom off because the models hand does not look right?

Thanks Phillip! I was trying to show she has hands, better when they are complete, you're right.

This is a very nice portrait and I like the way you've lit the model so that her hair has nice separation from the background. I like the negative space in the composition, but agree with the previous comment about the crop of her hand. Cropping at a joint like that looks odd. I would suggest either having the model drop her arm to the side or a tighter crop. The other comment I would make is that the background is a little distracting. Try moving your subject farther from the backdrop and/or use a wider aperture. At f16 you can see all the wrinkles in the backdrop. You could also fix them in Photoshop.

Yes your right with the F stop, that was a very big studio with an important ligjt ratio, that time (begining of 2010) I hated PS more than now, nowadays is more frequent for me to make a PS-fashion retouch.
Appreciate your comments about the arm cropping, even I really like it, sorry. I think there are a lot of (too much) conventions not always justified and looking at any classic art compilation you can find exemples to fight against those thoughts. Its really lucky to learn everyday and with everywork and I feel very happy for that.
