[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this portrait of my daughter just before she went to her Senior Prom. She is my oldest of 6 daughters and she looked stunning. I took about 50 pictures but this is the one that turned out the best in my opinion.

For this shot I used a 28-75mm lens with exposure set to 1/80. The aperture set at f/5.6 and an ISO of 160. I used one flash off camera to my left for the shot. . I used a black drop cloth for the shot and changed the BG in photoshop elements. I did minor adjustments to color saturation in Lightroom. I thought it turned out pretty good however, I am interested in your opinions. I look forward to reading your comments and critiques.

You have a very lovely daughter, she is so beautiful. Adorable smile.
I like the harmony of tones of her dress with the background and the rendering of light.
I am far from being a specialist in portraits but to me, that's fine. I like this portrait.

Hello Kevin,
I agree with Daisy about the harmony of colours between FG and BG. It is a very beautiful image and I have no suggestion for improvement. Just a pleasure to view. Well done.

Hello Kevin
This portrait is one of the stunning picture of the week "inside and outside"
and we are agree with Daisy and Neels it is so so warm and beautiful well done KEVIN ROSS

Hi Kevin,
All my thoughts have been mentioned below, a beautiful model and final result.

Good lighting, detail and color saturation. She is a fine looking lady and I can see why you take in pride in her.

Hi Kevin, I'm glad you didnt keep the black bg,a prom photo should be full of life like this one.Fiona
