A good shot with excellent light. I would only question the highlights on the inside of her left ankle. You need to look it over some more onslow under the chair right of the post is a black spot and there are some hair strands floating.

Good eye. I noticed that too.
Hands and feet can ruin a good fashion shoot. So much attention is often placed on the face that no one really pays too much attention to the rest of the body.
I've seen makeup jobs so bad it looks like the person is wearing a mask. If makeup is placed heavily on the face it tends to reflect light differently than skin with little to no makeup. This usually shows up as a face that is a different tone (or shade) than the neck and shoulders. But I'm getting off subject.

Hands and (specially) feet take a lot of abuse. If a person has been on their feet for a long time before a shoot they tend to be swollen, discolored or veiny. Not a very flattering look for women. Some skin smoothing, and balancing is often needed to match hands and feet to a pretty face. This is easily done with frequency separation.

Really like the lighting here John.
The ankle highlight doesn't bother me, but I'd agree on the stray hair.

I thought the spot under the chair was me having a dirty monitor. :D

Cheers for that. The highlights? on the ankle don't worry me. A touch more skin treatment may have benefits though.. The hair strands floating is a good catch. Not quite processed properly but the image is a final from a while ago so won't be revisiting it. :)

Thanks also Duck and Tom for your visit and thoughts...
