Nice shot of an attractive girl. I think the second version is best.

I like the first image, but also prefer the exposure cranked up a a little.

Nice shot, but I find it almost too sharp, especially around the eyes. Everything seems too defined and knife-edged.

Nice work! I apologize others have downloaded and played with your image without permission. I didn't think that was allowed on this site unless direct permission was given.

Well done. I would like to see more of a portrait crop to throw that comparison in. And, I rather like the definition of the eyes.

I understand that the link to the OP's own website has been removed (and I probably agree with the reasoning behind that policy), but how does the image now attached to this thread compare to what is on the OP's website? What I can see is a face that appears to be over-processed, to make the model's skin look perfectly smooth at the expense of looking realistic, but it could be just the downsampling of the original image. I would be interested in seeing a shot that went partway down her thigh for comparison as well as a shot with more light on the left (the model's right), but as it is, it is already very good.

Great light and excellent eyes. Why is it a horizontal format? Go square or rectangle/portrait format for more emphasis on your model.

Nice job overall. I agree with some other posters that the sharpness/contrast could be dialed back a bit and exposure could be a bit higher.

For me, I don't think the landscape is working here... you have tons of negative space on the side, but the top and bottom of the frame seems too tight. I think a slight bit more of head space up top would help. And since you are adding interest with the bottom of the sweater. I wouldn't put it right against the edge of the frame.

I am not totally convinced about the shot.
I think the balance in the detail in the sweater and in her face is off. Tons of detail in the sweater, but her face has no detail at all, completely flat.
Also I find her undies distracting. I would have opted for either naked legs or pants on her.

For me the skin is too clear, she looks like a statue. The colors, lighting, sharpness, composition and posing is great!
