A good portrait, I like the pose of the model.

Just a few words in the 'Description' box would really help with giving critique, or hints on how to improve. For instance, are you happy with this image? If you are then it's perfect and other opinions don't really matter! Smile

For me the image is rather 'flat' and quite soft - I did take it into Photoshop Elements 9, but found when I adjusted the 'Lighting' and 'Contrast' it became very noisy - as your EXIF details show an ISO of 3200 that's not very surprising! Smile I think the main problem with this image is lack of light, using flash would have allowed you to lower the ISO (if you find the flash too harsh, a small cover made of tissue would soften it).

I also feel there is a lot of empty 'space', but again this could be what you wanted. Personally I would get a little closer to the model.

If it's a self portrait then you've done brilliantly, I know how difficult it is to capture yourself! Smile
