Yum! Well-lit, sexy, real. Good job all round.
John, I recently read a perceptual psychologist's analysis of the enigmatic smile of the famous Mona Lisa and I think his analysis applies to this photograph as well. People, for years, have noticed that the distance away that one views De Vinci's masterpiece matters in the seeing of the furtive smile. If you look at the lips on this photo close up, using the sharply defined sensations of the eye's cental fovea, there is no smile, but if you look at her eye, your peripheral vision of the lips, which is now blurry (out of the fovea) misinterprets it as a smile. If you back up from the image until the fovea includes both the eye and the lips the smile is again absent. Congratulations on capturing a Mona Lisa look! Jerry
A woman's smile can be deceitful because it brngs into play not only their mouth, but the eyes, the handas and all the remainder of the body language. Next time you ask a young lady to pose for you, don't listen to the reply, look at the body language for the true answer ...!
John I was missing this beautiful shot, excellent pose and looking!!! Alberto
Facing the camera .. ..without a smile the smile is there ..
