Great skin tone - she doesn't look in the least bit nervous

Re: Kelly

Hi Paul,
Great shot. You wouldn't know it was the models first time!

As for perfection - I would crop up to bemove the bit of towel, or possibly clone out to keep the cleavage. Clone out the hair off the forehead. In another shot I would get her to roll her shoulder back a bit, atleast her left. Finally brush the hair from the left shoulder.

Overall a shot I think you and the model should be happy with

All the best,
Phil

Re: Kelly

Thanks Ian and yes she was a natural.

Thanks Phil and I agree about the bit of white dress showing.

Smile Great picture of Kelly

Yes I agree this is very strong - as is the other picture of Kelly in your gallery. That one shows the white dress better. I like the contrast between white and tan in the other shot and wonder if slightly more dress top rather than less might also be a good option in this? For me it would start with what the intended usage was and who was the image for. As a personal portfolio shot it is good for you as the photographer and for Kelly as a model.
