Pretty good but the highlights are a little too bright IMO.
Her dress looks a little over sharpened though (on my screen anyway).

I think if you had shot from a lower angle I think it would have looked a lot better and the highlights wouldn't have been such a problem.

How do you tell that it's over sharpened?

Look at the edges of the dress, looks like a fringe effect. (I did also say that it was what I was seeing on my screen).

It's a nice enough image and not knowing whether it was just a lucky snap or a staged shoot it's hard to comment on it. For a casual snap, sure it's fine. If it is a staged shoot... there are a number of problems. 1. Image leans to the right 2. Highlights are blown 3. Models right hand in front of her face 4. black dress was not a good choice for the choosen title and like Gary has said already the dress does look overprocessed.

Just my humble opinion, no offence intended and thanks for posting it, this is how we all learn.

Thanks for that mate , btw this is not a staged shoot , story behind this is the model was blinded by the light of the reflector. i didnt do a sharpening on this one.

I can see it now, it's just the way the fabric is.
