Hi Castillo. That's a very nice portrait. I love low key in general. The more ink the better She looks like a kind, loving person.
Couple of thoughts:
- the hand: to me at least, it's a bit distracting, and I would consider omitting it from the composition altogether.
- the lighting: I really like the subtleness of the lighting. I can barely tell if you used a kicker light and a background / separation light. You have chosen broad lighting, by lighting the side of her face that is showing the most. I would consider moving the key light to the other side to see if that had a more dramatic / slimming effect on the models face. Let's face it, all women love that which is slimming. Lastly, to nitpick even more, I don't care much for the tiny dash of light that is on the right side (her left side) of her mouth.
- the processing: does not look overprocessed, which is good. I would consider fiddling around a bit with the white balance though, to see if she lookes even better with a slightly cooler color temperature.
- the background: there is a dark vertical line there, but it does not really bother me. Maybe it even adds some interest. Studio portraits that are too perfect tend to be boring, so don't take my advice too seriously
I think it looks nice, especially the reflections on the floor - very futuristic...
If I may ask, what was the setup (how many flashes)?
One flash behind the plant, to give the nice shape on the ceiling
Flash on-camera (or next to the camera) for lighting the chairs to be white?
... flash in the back-left room for the purple color?
here is a real estate shot i took with my 5D III & the 24L f1.4

That looks really nice. A good lens/body combo although I prefer wider shots myself. good work =-)
Love the color and lighting. Was there any way to throw some back-lighting on the ice when you setup the shot?
Glad I have this combo, good to see this kind of work
Makes me want to put this 100L to work, lol.
