Hi Yasir,
This is a beautiful portrait. I love this soft lightning, composition and the use of B&W. Thanks,

Nice portrait. I like the mood. Did a workshop for fun. Not that this photo really needed anything.

Beautiful portrait Yasir. Nice lighting and composition. Good work, Mike

A very beautiful model Yasir. Your portrait is very well composed and cropped, and the treatment in b&w is excellent.
Light is very good, almost overexposed on her nose and chin but still ok. Beautiful catchlights in her eyes.
Unfortunately this was a hand-held shot, and at 1/20 you have some camera-shake affecting the sharpness. (In most cases if the exposure is slower than 1/80 it is advised to use a tripod or some other steadying object.)
Still, this is a very nice photo.

wow yasir!
she is beautiful.
perfect light.

Great work as always. I still think the sharpness is one area that this portrait requires some work with. A pro photographer like yourself told me once that for portrait photography the eyes **MUST** be in **SHARP** focus as they are the first thing the viewer eyes naturally look for. As your focal length is 125 mm, your required a speed of atleast 1/125 sec for sharp picture, but your exif shows only 1/20 sec. All in all great composition. Hope you take my suggestion in good spirits as we are here to learn.

portrait is good
bur i think u should use soft filter for this portrait
u see skin shows the foundation on it

superbe i like the reflection in the eyes ,she looks like a porcelaine doll,or someone on heroîne
great bw pic!

She is a Beautiful. Good B&W conversion.
