    Impromptu shoot with the Fuji X-E1, ISO 1600, 1/60 second, 18-55mm lens set to F3.6 at 34mm ambient light from the window. She wanted a bit of texture in this image.

    Beautiful model and lighting. The pose and composition are great. It looks like something happened in post-proc under her left eye, or maybe it's my screen or my eyes.

    Beautiful indeed, model, lighting and composing. As far as the shadow under the model's left eye is concerned I refer to longhiker's comment.

    I've seen that look before, and it scares me! Very nice image.

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I will check out the original JPG file and see what is going on under her left eye. A bit of background on this shot. Nikki and her mother had driven straight through from New York back here. They had been out East to attend the funeral of her brother who had been shot and killed during an attempted truck jacking. He was the second sibling she had lost in four months. As she said, all the way home if she wasn't driving she had her face buried in a pillow crying or trying to sleep and apparently her mother was doing much of the same. This was the day after they had returned and she stopped by to give me a T-Shirt she had bought for me in NY and to let me know they were back in town. As I recall she had some splotches/rash on her face and that may have caused that issue under her eye. She was looking out the sliding glass door that leads to my back yard and giving me crap for not attending to the mess on my patio and I picked up the X-E1 which was sitting on my desk and snapped a few shots. His killer has been caught and tried.
