Sorry mate, not up to your usual standard, her hand is OOF and there is a distracting area on the bottom left near her little finger tip that should be cloned out.. I'm a bit surprised to see your name on it to be honest.

Beautiful lighting and colours! Funky nails and I adore that lipstick!!

I would so love to come along to one of your workshops and watch you work your magic, figure out how you get skin tones that gorgeous.

I like the tension in the pose and the expression very much. Slightly more dynamic lighting would have increased my score, but it's a good effort.

I usually like the fingers up in the shot like this. But because of her weird nails is severly detracts from an otherwise beautiful shot of a beautiful woman

Excellent pose and composition, and good use of the light - I would guess you used a reflector to keep the shadows away from the left side of her face? I do wish her fingers and nails weren't blurred, and the patch of light to the left is a bit distracting, although obviously outside of the challenge it can be cloned out.Good work.

The fingernails are actually a distraction to her beautiful facial features. It almost looks like it is not her hand. OTherwise, a great shot, I think.

It's mismatched imho. The glitter nailpolish but no jewelry? The ruby red lip stick with a grey tank?

Kinda reminds me of the singer Gwen Stephani! Nice colors and composition but I wish she didn't have the wild nail polish...it distracts IMHO.

Her fingernails are oddly distracting, as is the spot to the left of her hand.

This is going to seem like nit picking (sorry) but you've (or your model has) done a great job with her face makeup. However, she has freckles on her hand and that was one of the first things I noticed. There really is nothing wrong with adding a light base coat to a models hands (or shoulders, legs, whatever) to soften blemishes and freckles. There certainly isn't anything wrong with freckles but if you a such a clean face, the freckles on her hands really stand out.

Like the title to this one, she would have been better posed in a jazzier background, with the make up and nails (mainly the nails), I picture a more natural person posed with a natural background, I also would have cloned out the white spot on the left,and the one by her cheek, a tad distracting. She can deffinatley pose, a great image otherwise, 7.

Good job posing her made-up nails against the plain wood - like the contrast.
