Yes, but what is the "ghosting" image on the right hand side?

Possibly the mirror's beveled edge?

With available shadows!

If I were using a charcoal stick to make this same image I would be noticing the shadows because I would have to put them there by my own hand. That's why I see the shadows when viewing your photograph. Shinny spot on her right shoulder meand there is a concentrated light scource.
Where there are shadows there is light to make them.

I'm sure if you really set out to fool me, you eventually could succede. You are a very creative individual.

I wonder, when you say things like this, do you feel smart, or important? Or perhaps both?

don't take Iraly too literally
In reply to Peter Nelson, May 8, 2012

while I suspect the M9 might be better suited for such portraits, there is no denying Irakly pulled off a fine low light portrait using the formidable S2
having an exquisite model helps
I love the way CCD's render colors in low light situations
much more to my taste than their silicon pumped up CMOS cousins
her eyes are beautifully rendered

as to the noise that our intrepid snake_b complained, I fail to see it in this massively reduced for the web image

the nice thing about having lots of pixels to play with, is how well noise is handled by file size reduction

Irakly, you should submit this to this month's Challenge

When you respond that way, does it confirm your arrogance to yourself?

You can't even insult or make a comeback without your trademark arrogance.
