You have some beautiful photos in your portfolio. The photo you have posted here is an attempt to do something artistic. Some people like that sort of thing. I don't. I wouldn't have shot a picture of you that way.

I think the retouching is fine, considering what the intent of the photo is.
Personally I think would be much improved by some cropping, the upper half of the image works better.
And you won't find me recommend cropping out a boob, especially epic boobs such as yours!, but I find the image to be stronger if it were cropped just above your nipple.
But, there are problems with that as well....I think your eye was turned just a bit too far off to the side, the dark part of your eye just blends in with the shadow...
Overall, you have better photos already, but if you heart is set on using this one try it with a crop...
Thank you all, and I agree that it can be done a bit better, thats why I will just try again. I wanted to test an idea and the photog agreed. Different styling, better post work, and lighting.. thank you
Although I like the concept and your expression, this composition doesn't work for me. Cropping out the other breast doesn't feel right to me, nor does the post work / coloring. Still, kudo's for artistic experimentation.
While some are commenting on the photo and have good suggestions, I am looking at this from a different angle - That is I am looking at a models portfolio, not a photographers portfolio. It's nice to see a photo that has not been photoshopped beyond reality. If a photographer wants to do that in their portfolio, then fine. I want to know what you really look like if I am considering working with you.
This photo make you look very confident and makes me think you would be someone I wanted to work with. You don't seem nervous or self-concious. That may not be the truth, but neither is photoshop
I'd have to agree that overall, It doesn't flatter you. I know you want to push your diversity and artistic views, but it can be done in a better way.
I would crop and keep just your facial expression. It rocks!
Like where you're going but I think it can look edgy without looking so harsh. Also the crop doesn't excite me. I'd either keep both breasts in or crop above them. Just the one and 1/2 looks funny to me. JMO. Can't wait to see the reshoot.
