After this shooting from last year I published three edited versions of this setting with some small variations to the pose, the outfit or the lighting (for those of you who are wondering "what outfit?" - there's a version with Mia wearing underwear). There was also a poll on which version people liked the best. It seems that people liked the pose from Version I best, but they liked the lighting from Version II better, where the light in the mirror is almost completely hidden by Mia's head. Unfortunately we had no shot with the pose from Version I and the lighting from Version II, so after six months I've decided to combine the two shots in Photoshop. Today you can make a photo that you never did take.
Now I'm curious how people feel about this one. Not always is the answer as straight forward as one might think. Altough Version II was more popular in the poll, Version I still recieved way more favs. I wonder if the "flare" that a lot of people saw as a flaw actually made the picture more interesting?
For comparison, here's version I:
