Single 24" octabox with grid from camera right. 1/16 power. No crop, no resize, straight out of camera. Looking back would have liked to clone some of the stray hairs out but this is min editing.

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that meets the challenge.

A lovely studio shot of a beautiful lady with perfect colours for the challenge brief. The lighting is good bringing out all the detail well, her pose is good with her weight distribution making a nice shape to her bum. Iím gonna be really pedantic here because thatís what Iím here for! Three minor improvements I would make, yes as you and your commenter have observed, the lack of hair would have made for a simpler more effective image. Secondly, a little more symmetry by placing the left arm in the corner the same as the right and cropping just a little lower so that there is no flesh above the top of the corset. And finally, yes I know its pedantic but it does matter, that twist in the top of her knickers by her right hand is just a tad annoying.

Well looking back at this the score distribution is all over the chart. A total of 6 people gave me 1s and 2s. But on the other end of the spectrum 11 8's. What a weird score distribution. Overall I would have liked this to have done better but what can I say, it is what it is.

Can't really understand the scoring here, but o well.

Someone mentioned they would like to see the hair removed, I agree, this would actually make for a better image.

Nicely shot! I think without the hair would have been better for the score, though.

I like that you have symmetry, with just a little sass to it.
