    Have to agree, that's a gorgeous shot. Was there any major post processing involved?

    Les, great image but a change in the lighting can make it even stronger. The catch lights in the models eyes show crossed lighting- you'd normally see both catch lights in the upper left or upper right rather than one on the upper left portion of the eye and the other on the lower right. The other thing that I'd watch is not to spill light into the white of the eye.

    Dammit Rich, now I can't look at that photo without fixating on the opposing catchlights! As for not spilling light onto the white of the eye, I'm afraid that's very much hit or miss for me at my stage of photographic development.

    Does this one suit your sensibilities any better?

    This looks far more natural to me that the first picture... but the catchlights are still on the lower half of the eye. If you consider the sun as a lighting source and took a picture at mid day the catchlight's would be at the top and center of the eye. Later in the day as the sun is setting it would come into the eye at a lower position. At sunset the catchlights would be at the 3 o'clock position of the eye but never goes lower than that.

    It isn't a problem on your image but if the light were a little bit lower then you'd see the shadow of the nose going up the face which would look quite unnatural.

    Boy, now I really know that I don't want to do portraiture; it just sounds far too technical. I do like all the discussion on the lighting and eyes. Not something I would have noticed and I would be wondering what seems not quite right.
