I absolutely love this shot! The rim lighting gives it a very epic flare and the highlights really define her musculature without making her seem manly. The only thing that caught me off guard a bit (and initially I thought it was a deliberately added special effect,) was the blue showing through her cape. Very impressive work indeed.
Thank you Jim! You are correct to point out the light in her cap. That was probably an adverse effect of having the light too high. I could have dropped it a stop and still maintained the rim. The photo still kept me engaged enough to let it pass instead of toning it down in post. I appreciate your words Jim, always a pleasure!
Other than not being able to mount the gel, a beauty dish with a direct light block might have served as well. But I'm with you in that it was definitely not distracting enough to skip on this one; not by a long shot.
