The lighting is almost fantastic. A little too dark on the left, though. And there is WAY too much airbrushing, here.
Mark Varley: The fade-to-black on the left is intentional, can never be sure how it looks on your screen though I just know it's how I intended on my screen and when printed.
Thanks for the feedback RE the airbrushing.
Like the image but way over retouched smile
Mark Varley: Thats two comments against the airbrushing, duly noted and thank you.
Great Picture! ;-)
Mark Varley: Thanks Cor smile

The fade to black is fine. The issue is the shadow on her arm. It makes it look like it's floating.
Mark Varley: a fair point Sophia, if I'd seen it at the time I ought to have got her to twist at the shoulders to get just a little light to it, a tough call as the lighting position is bang-on down the body and not much leeway on the face.
Thanks again for the feedback.
I have studied and practice a bit of portrait photography. Did you use one source of soft light only ?
Mark Varley: Hi Delia, This was lit with a single softbox, quite large and just out of frame (the larger the source of light relative to the subject, the softer it will be).
