first word that comes to mind.... soft. the model i must say is very pretty and she has a natural roundness and softness to her that makes the photo even more magnetic.
although i love the pose, i want to see her face too at the same time. one of those moments where i wish i could walk in and capture the moment where she first looks up.

the back ground is simple....and that is good it keeps the attention on the model. it also adds a sense of her personality.
if i had to venture a guess i would say she is a girl of simple pleasures and a nature lover at heart.

the lighting is great too im guessing there where two light sources? if not then you got a great angle of light that gave a double light effect.

great job love it and if you see her again tell her she is stunning.
What do you think?

Something about this image called to me. I love her hair, and I agree with Namihatake6 about the "roundness" of the image as a whole -- from the curve of her shoulders and thigh and breast to her head being turned down, and even (perhaps subconsciously) the wine glass in the background, it all gives a feeling of gentle tranquility that just pulled me in.

The trees in the window make me imagine seclusion and bring up images of intimacy -- no one around but you and her, and that sticks out as being important to me. The downcast eyes make me wonder if she's a bit shy, but it's not a bad thing -- it comes across as adorable and endearing in my mind. I imagine it to be a very relaxed atmosphere. Beautiful shot!
