Very nice picture! Just a little "nit pick" though: maybe you'd like to try and even out the skin tone on the "light square" hitting her knee. This is a good time to fake it with PS like it was never there ;)

Thank you for the feedback! I'm not sure how that highlight didn't catch my eye before, but now I'm definitely wishing I had done that, haha. The devil is in the details after all!

Your welcome! The "devil made me do it" ;) Quick hint: never forget to step away from your edits (computer) for a bit and then come back to them before publishing. Amazing what devilish details show up after a break(!)

I agree with your description, great car and stunning model, a bit hot on the forehead + what Doc Pixel refered to. Combining warm sunset light with beauty dish and monolight get a little more difficult to perfectly control, but nothing that couldn't be fix in post. A lovely fashion shot ! Bravo !
