Hi Marina,
Gorgeous female thus a pleasing portrait!
The light is a bit harsh being a blond!
The pose is provocative and desirous!
A good result but I rather defuse the lighting.

Hi Marina
I like the look, the pose, the clear background and the side light on the hair. perhaps the neckless is bit too much for me as the facial expressions are so powerful that the eye is slightly getting distracted. Secondly under the control conditions, the shadows under the chin could have been much softer using a reflector to make this image outstanding!
Best regards

Hello Marina

Nice portrait of a very attractive girl, but in my opinion the lighting could have been softer, Bulwant ois correct a small reflector in front of her low down would take the harshness from the shadow under her chin. Possibly asking her to turn her head to the left slightly would also help compositionally, I also think you have to include a slightly longer view to include the left hand or ask her to bring her left arm upwards.
As the necklace forms such a large part of the photo compositionally I have converted it to mono to see what effect this had on the elements in the photo.
Hope you don't mind

Hi Marina,
Good pose.
A bit cold tones.
The composition is good.
There is a disturbing halo around the model (from processing).
I just try a few things hope you don't mind.

I like the pose of the girl, the lighting and the the colours.Congratulations Marina.

Great lighting in this photo. I like the direction of the models eyes and the overall color and tone of the image. TFS
