First, this is labeled as self portraits, and I doubt you set up the camera and then ran into the shot. But if you did, kudos! I'll start with the model. The model could be doing more with her face and posture. It's evident that a lack of enthusiasm was sort of key in the pose, but she could have gotten away with more of an interesting angle and attitude in my opinion. The photographer did a good job framing, composing, and exposing, but a few points need addressed. First of all, a soft light hitting the backdrop to kill the models shadow would have really made this photo 'pop'. Killing that shadow is the key difference between 'that one photographer who does good work' and 'I need to find out how much that photographer charges.', if you catch my drift. Other than that, a little more lighting on the model would have been nice to get rid of the shadows left by her left arm and thigh. Last but not least, that backdrop could use a good cleaning before your next shot. All in all, I really enjoy this shot and it inspires me to progress in my own photography. Also, I can't notice any editing or processing, this looks all natural. All things considered, I'd say you've done a great job.

im just playing devils advocate here but: seeing as how i could have done just a typical bra shot with undies and heels ..i feel like this i am wearing a bra that is more of a "tube top" then bra ..and my shorts may be short but they are shorts. I did go with an angel that did make my self look a bit taller. and i would have to agree on the heels they are a little tacky looking BUT then again it coudl have been 5 in spike heels and i could just look like a skimpy whore HAHA <3
