The pose doesn't do anything for her. It looks like she is leaning back which just makes her torso look really compressed and not flattering. I like the eyes and the overall facial expression.

Overall the lighting looks good.

Watch your wide angle lens distortion. If you're using a short focal length lens set you focus zone to one spot. Keep the spot dead center in the lens. Focus her face dead center, hold the shutter down half way to lock focus and then compose the shot. Seem to work well for me.

Not sure what you are seeing. I used a 70-200 2.8L IS lens. I used the center point in the exact way you described. I think the reduction and subsequent sharpening to restore the image makes them look wierd. That is the only thing I hate about posting images...my inability to get them to look like the full-res. I'll keep trying! Thanks for your comment!

Hi,
From my monitor I see her in dark blue or black, not green!

Here's my major problem with this. You shot her from your height, which makes her look small and squashed.

If you stoop down when you shoot a model, and shoot level with her belly or even her bust, you will make her look taller and more statuesque.

This was shot at bust level.
