Up with the sun this morning, lets start the day with a new image. It's called Her Ladyship.

When taking the image I was looking for shape, angles, frame stopper, a set of three, lighting and model expression. The stunning model Porcha, is perfect for this with her beautiful angular looks and skill. I give credit to her for her patience in baiting my dogs with pizza (Joanie's burnt pizza!).

When processing this this image looking at the strengths of the black and whites, the texture in the sofa fabric throw and the dress and of course the all important lighting. Main adjustment I use is the curve adjustment on a multiply, screen or softlight blend mode.

These are 3 of my 4 dogs, the most precious things in my life. No matter what life throws at me, my dogs are always there to lick my nose and give me a nuzzle.

From left to right: Princess (Mum), Prince (Dad) and PJ (Son, Prince Junior).

i agree with fellow guests that this is one (almost) perfect image. Nice how the outlining of the dogs seems to follow the curve of the back of the seat, from high to low. Perhaps I might have moved all three dogs a bit to the left, sort of in the middle between the body of the model and the end of the seat, but overall I really like this picture.

A masterpiece!! Well done!
Derrik April 03, 2015
The models right hand should be turned slightly towards the dogs. Hands should never point at the viewer. It is also more feminine to cross feet at the ankles, and the left knee should be the higher one so as to repeat the slope of the couch and dogs. Finally, roll your female onto one hip rather than sitting flat. This will flatter her figure more. Lovely model! Straighten the candles next time you use that prop.
GordonD April 10, 2015
Well i must say i disagree with the comment on the candles lol i think it is fantastic.....i never have agreed with all these silly rules, if we all followed the same rules art would be so boring. I say again Fantastic :)
