    Hi Brent, I like the shot but I find the light on her chest to be too bright… too much contrast to the dark areas of the photo. If you could tone the brightness down, this would be a great picture.

    +michel prins ha no… I have an export tool in Lightroom that exports to a full or aspect ratio format for ipad… it just tags the image with that…

    I like to do that so I can drop them right into my iPad for my portfolio folder I have there….

    I was wondering when someone would comment on that thou…it is a great lightroom export plugin thou from +Matt Kloskowski

    I have to agree with +Steve Boyko The bright center cuts the picture in half. If you cropped it there it would probably work as an alternative.

    Even though the chest is bright, I like it =)

    I don't mind the contrast between that, the suit, and the shadowed background.

    I totally see what others see in the chest, but what throws me is the dark of her nose and under her lower lip. I think if her face were brightened (the nose especially), the bright chest wouldn't seem so out of place.

    She's awesome, btw, and rocks those glasses hard. Great stare.

    I tend to post more interesting edits to get opinions on where to take other work…

    I do tend to like strange contrasty lighting – if that is good or bad is a much larger discussion.. here it is looking for toward the dislike side than the like side on this image…..

    Thanks for all the input so far….

    I would agree with +Steven Marra, I like it bright like that. It might be because I usually prefer "different" photos from "correct" ones. To be honest, I would even try to slightly increase blue saturation on it, to make it look a bit "out of space". And glasses win 🙂

    In my opinion, this not look like a pose…but as she enters the scene. Light is perfect, highlight is on glasses and number…just perfect…
