Hi Manuj

Obviously you are a very accomplished photographer, and i'm a relative novice, but here's my 2 cents worth of opinion.
The lighting obviously isn't the most attractive for a woman, but it is very interesting and produces a certain look. It has put the background into shadow but produced nice catch-lights and colour on the garland. Yep, i think you should be happy with the result.

Hi Manuj, Lightings is always an issue taking portrait. This one of yours has a mysterious mood with only a single light in front and below of her face. The only thing is I found the rest of her body is too much out of focus. Thank for sharing

Hi Manuj,
You've managed to produce an atractive photo using a light coming from below the woman's face.
I think it works, and thus the rule was broken, as most should :)

Hello, Manuj. This is a creative photograph and the nice thing is that the light is coming from below and yet it is producing a pleasing appearance with the bouquet above. Very well done portrait of the beautiful lady. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Manuj! What a beautiful girl. Original point of view. Very original composition. Mysterious shadowplay. Good contrast. Very good quality. Fantastic portrait. Well done!
