I think it's a pleasant pose and a nice face but those lips... those lips are border-line ... 'duck' lips!  smile

The expression compliments the image nicely.

I hate duck lips.

IMO those are not really there, maybe 1/4 of the way. Not bothering me at all, lol. Nice pic.

The facial expression is sort of 50:50 for me. Not that excited by it, but it's not awful either.

The overall angle and body shape though is very disconcerting. I'm sure you are exactly that shape in real life and it's just the pose and angle from which it was shot, but for me, I'm afraid it looks as if somebody has gone a bit wild with the liquify tool!

Personally I think it looks staged and fake - an unfortunate accident, perhaps - but that's what jumps out at me from this image. Some may like it, of course, but I feel it looks like both you and the photographer were trying too hard to accentuate your curves here and it simply doesn't work for me.




Just my $0.02

Given that killer body, I'm assuming those aren't ducklips, just killer lips about to ask a question. The expression seems to be an inquisitive one.

If she's not lying about her measurements in her profile, I believe the picture.

Lordy, hallelujah, I believe!
