    Very nice ... rich and intriguing ... love the location,lighting and models.

    Hope you don't mind a few fussy "Art Director" comments on a personal project ... but I can't help myself ... (Once an AD, always an AD

    On the first shot there seems to be a bit of a halo around the bottom of the dress and shoe ... and no shadow where the shoe touches the ground makes it look cut out.

    On number 2, her stomach under her top looks reddish compared to the rest of her skin color ... (I know, it's probably anal-izing it to much).

    On number three, I'd lift her hand tone a tiny bit ... it looks a little bit dirtyish.

    Thanks Jack - no, it is in the abandoned section of a mental hospital. Part of the hospital is scheduled for demolition and part for remodeling. There were holes in the walls and ceiling in some locations.

    Marc - thanks - always value your opinion and critique.
    1. She's really standing there... I'll check the halo on the original. I did darken the floor a bit in C1- that may be the culprit. She is lit by a gridded beauty dish high and directly over my head - shadow is there, just behind her foot.
    2. Didn't notice her stomach - the top is tied on her, so it is possible.
    3. Which hand, below her head?

    Yeah, the one below her head, just a touch ... the one over her head looks perfectly natural given the lighting.

    Yep, if you darkened the floor a touch and feathered the outline it'll create a halo ... I usually feather the edge only 2 or 3 pixels depending on the file size so it doesn't get hard-edged ... but a couple of pixels won't create a halo.

    Beautiful stuff, really!

    Thanks for the comments - and I really appreciate you taking the time to speak with me on the phone several months ago!
