I've decided not to remove the stripes on the right side of background. The were created by some light that escaped through holes in my barn door mounting.

The shot looks great, especially the post processing in B&W. What software did you use for this one - Nik software? Just a suggestion, if you wanted to remove the escaped light, you can think about creating a black flag in the future to ensure a dark background. I did wonder what the shot would have looked like with a black background only - I can imagine she would have stood out even more. Also, just note, I understand that this is a creative shot of a naked person - unfortunately, just the way she was pressing on her breast made it looked a bit morphed. Kind of became distracting and drew my eyes away from her lovely face. I understand there's a lot to think about when doing a set up like this so something to note in the future. Anyway, what is the purpose of the second strobe on the left that seems to be pointing to the background? Otherwise, a great shot! Thanks for sharing! :-)

Hello Cindy,
Thanks for your comment :)
I've used Camera Raw plugin for photoshop- I've converted to BW and lightened up reds and oranges to achieve sort of "marble skin effect".
As I didn't want the background to be pitch black I pointed a strobe there, to shoot some light, but it also lead to these aforementioned stripes on the right side of bcg.
