[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A portrait taken under strong sunlight, with a "rembrandt" orientation to the light: means that the light must creates a "closed" shadow under the eye, and the shadow above the lips must cut it right in the middle of one side, as you see in the shot.The light source must be approximately at 45 degree with respect to the face.

Excellent portrait especially in B&W. Great pov and dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Your "Rembrandt-like" approach worked out well, Marco ;o). The play of shadows on your model's face contributes as much to her aura as does her dreamy look. As to composition, maybe I would have preferred a little more space towards the left.
TFS & kind regards,
