My favorite model, Basia. Retouched lips, eyes (whites, and contours). I like this nice and relaxed pose.

Richard.. very well done..I am curious to know what you did here.. perhaps if you posted a ws with the original and explained your technique that would help us see what you did.

Bonjour Richard!

Bravo ! Superbe portrait. Éclairage, pose , POV, DOF, et modèle tous TOP niveau ! (^_^)


Beautiful model on a very good pose. This is very nice composition and the lighting is perfect. Not that appealing would be her feet, could've been a little bit tilted or lowered or you could've do a PP to clean-up the dark spots.

hi Richard
ce portrait est A1
bravo! et merci de l,avoir partagé

Y'a des fois comme celle la, ou je n'ai simplement rien a redire! Bravo! Bon éclairage, belle émotion... superbe!

hi Richard,

I like it. very much!

Such detal.

Well done!


Technical perfection. That is boring technical perfection. Sharpness, accutance, and stuff.
She's not relaxed. Her head is suspended in the air.
It hurts after few seconds of posing.
No wonder her eyes and mouth ask: Did you finish yet?
You've made her short (fatal perspective!)
Is that her belly between the folds of her blouse?


You have the studio. You obviously have the proper equipment. You have the beautiful models (Polish girls,eh?). It's the time to kick the audience in the teeth.
Do it Richard Juneau. Wake us up!

This is a wonderful portrait. the light is perfect.
Well done

There's more to like about her than this pose, Richard ;o).
Beautiful model, nice pose indeed, well captured.
One little nit-pick: above her upper lip there's a white shine, I think it would have looked better if you had used a burn brush there.
Anyway, TFS.
