the title of this one reminds me of kathleen turner's character in 'romancing the stone'

i'd've removed the hair strands if this were for commercial use (okay, okay, you caught me being lazy again :P)

The model looks great and I like the ambiguous expression. Good work! However, the skin tones seem a little red to me on this (calibrated) monitor and I find the wine stains on her blouse (bottom right and on her shoulder) a little distracting.
DrAW!: lol!
those 'wine stains' are patterns on her dress (designed by beampeh)
it's possible you easily get distracted grin
either way i get the gist
thanks for the post
I think you might have over done the eye whitening? Still I wouldn't know where to start with studio stuff! So nice one Doc!
DrAW!: hardly whitened the eye bill
thanks for the post

beautiful shot.
DrAW!: thanks tia
Dude, you have OVER processed this shot! You did a curve correction on the top part of the face which hasn't been done well.

Also why light up the hair and then reduce the exposure on is at the corners?

IMHO, I think you should have re-shot it with your lights on a lower level to highlight the face.

If I were to shoot this I'd use a ring flash instead of a soft box.
DrAW!: thanks jide
