the light is nice on her skin- i wish that the background was a little darker, or the edges were, because that would draw my eye in to the center (try doing a layer mask over one where you darken using levels)-- the colors are nice... the skin feels a little glowing, in an odd way, the more i look at it. i think the thing is that the picture looks like it should have drama, but then it doesn't, it is just... nice. a girl in the woods. with a costume. that could be really storybook, but it isn't quite.
i hope i make sense.

Im second i guess

i like how dark it is, but on my monitor i see a darker outline where all detail is lost outlining her against the backdrop. weird. i am not a fan of the color- the pale pink skirt... it makes the shadows look green. also her leg is the brightest highlight. try to dodge/burn so it is more even maybe. i do love the shadows on the neck, and would love to see it brought out even more.

well, not a fan of the picture persay based on the edit/backdrop/etc. - but- for you, i think it is ok, but not great. i wish you had stretched out a little more, put something more dynamic in the pose, pointed your toes a little, arched a little more- it looks like it wants to be more sexy/glamour, but then you just lie there. you have a great figure, i think you can show it better though by pushing a little harder and creating more interest, throwing the head back, or something. act when you model, don't pose!

think the edit/frame could be more interesting, that aside-- you look like you are stiff, someone told you to stand that way and you did. your face feels empty. i think you should try to bring more intensity to your eyes, and some motion, or natural feeling to your pose.

Is this a conflict of interest?

nah tongue
it slightly bothers me that the hand is cropped. also it looks like the clarity is pumped up really high- the hair looks a little over-defined. i am generally not a champion for ringlights, but specifically the skin looks a bit over edited. also (because i know, aha!) i would not have chosen to make the lip that color pink, it feels kind of teenage 80s/90s to me. minus the handcrop, though, i like the frame, and i like the fabric. also like the general tone/color scheme.

somehow my eyes is first drawn to the upper right- background, probably not a good thing. the light is nice, but i don't feel like the image really pops, or has impact- have you played with curves/luminosity mask? i would darken the shadows in curves using a luminosity mask and see what happens. all in all, it is a nice enough picture, but nothing stands out.

love the tone/edit- retro feel, the light is nice- only thing is her legs look short/odd, it looks like you are taller than the model/makes her look short- maybe would have shot it from a lower angle, OR! fix the crop and crop right at the bottom of the underwear to get rid of the really odd thigh shape.

logo! distracting! odd white lines from logo? distracting! glowing orb at the end of the heel? makes no sense. the light is nice, but not a fan of the wrinkly backdrop/wrinkled sheet she is laying down on. i think the color of her face is a little different than the body too- there is more color in her shoulder than on her face.

What about this?

hmm well the skin edit bugs me- your face looks red and not even, the fabric is a little 'floating head' too. your eyes are lovely, ps, but your mouth looks a little tense. it looks like you aren't fully comfortable on camera. try just shaking it out, make silly faces, squinch your face then relax it. try to act with your face, not put it in to a pose.
