Hello Kenny,
This is an amazing portrait, especially considering that you used only one light source. The composition and tonal range are just perfect. I am sure other members here will have more to say about the great attributes of this image. Hopefully she is still as beautiful as she was 25 years ago. A real pleasure to view.

Hi Kenny , I do like the actual portrait itself ,a nice light and catch lights for a shot this old. Only thing I can suggest is spending a few minutes to complete the back ground and clone the gap between the hair and the blue . Fiona

Hi Kenny

I'm not an expert on portraits, but this looks pretty good to me. Good catchlights in the eyes, good focus on the eyes, which is most important. Good pose, good detail and good connection with the camera. I am struggling to see how this is one light only though. There are shadows beneath her nose and lips and halo lighting on her hair at the top of her head; is that two? The side of her head, is that bad cutting in?
