A very fine portrait study in my opinion. Aesthetically posed, looking very fine in Black and White, with its wide dynamic range from across that spectrum.
The eyes make an immediate and powerful connection with the viewer, and the face is beautifully framed.
Thanks for sharing.

A very nicely lit portrait - pensive, almost fearful, look. The drapes in the background are a distraction, particularly because they are not flat, thus the undulating darks and lights grab my eye.
Every photograph is a self-portrait. http://rogerrex.zenfolio.com/

Thanks guys for the feedback

Roger, your are right for the background, that's the challenge to shoot at someone's place with a limited time :)

Hi Fabrice,
Beautiful model; great facial expression; eyes and face finely lit; specially eyes; nice b&w conversion. It looks like your model enjoyed posing for you.
Things that can be better:
- background: too busy(3 kinds of textures: floor + curtains + wall). Curtains and wall split in half at the middle of model's head and too much light for background
- framing: try never to cut peoples hands and fingers; try square size croping below hairline. Below it is not flattering the model.
-lighting: the back of her hand and her back is overexposed. It is the brightest part of the image and therefore viewers eyes always want to go there and are going away from her eyes where they should rest. I would try vignetting to remedy this area somewhat.
I hope this was helpful.
Thank you for sharing. I am very fond of portraiture.
Kindness and compassion

I was hesitant to comment since I am not a portrait specialist at all, but had the same thoughts about the lighting as Svetlana, but still a very nice portrait though.
