this is definitely beautiful. compo and colour.
well seen and presented.
a suggestion though, you could have clone/erase the sleeve of the man on the right hand side. nevertheless, still beautiful. ( i guess as you said in the note, you got so excited about it. :) )

What happens if you crop the sleeve of a man in the right? Very impressive. Glowing red looks great against that dark background. I love the lighting. Beautiful! TFS

Magnifique portrait avec ce jeu d'ombres et lumière. Très belle opposition entre le BG et le rouge de l'habit.

what extraordinary lighting! It lights her face so perfectly and the contrast to the dark BG is awesome. Wonderful composition, beautiful color, no wonder you wanted to photograph this. As others mentioned, the sleeve could go, but the rest is simply brilliant. Fantastic shot! Many thanks and kind regards,

This is a beautiful photo, very clear and sharp. The red colour really stands out with the black background.

Nice contrast, well spoted agree with roald, perhaps a carefuly chosen frame would make it even more appealing.

The red glow and DoF are stunning. A slightly tighter crop on the right and bottom would have worked too. The crisp face is beautiful.
