This is a nice shot of a gorgeous girl...and I have to say I am very jealous about that Chaise Lounge...I want it!!
I think the main issue here is the colour balance which in my opinion washes the shot out a little. I would also have added a bit more space around the image to allow more head room
and the abilty to straighten things up a bit. The shot also needed a bit of clearing up on the left side.
I hope you approve of my mods.

Good image. The reason her foot/leg looks bigger in proportion to her body is due to using your lens at a focal lenght of 20 mm. If you have the room move further back and use somewhere around 70/100 mm. This will give a more balanced look. As suggested above don't fill the frame, leave space for cropping, this is very important if you want to print and find a frame to fit. 8 x 10 or 7 x 5 or whatever, these are different ratios to your camera.
I personally like to see the photographer name on an image, its show pride in your work Actually plenty of excellent photographers on this site add their names.
regards
Ian

Thank you for the comments which, on the whole, I find helpful and constructive. I would stress that these are only opinions and one seems to imply that the comments are factual. I would also like to know where Focus-Man read that I was a beginner, new to this web site but not new to photography. All comments are welcome but constructive ideas for improvement are even more welcome.
Many thanks for taking the time and trouble to comment.

Thanks for your message, I wasn't aware of exactly how this web site operates. I was not even aware of completing this section, it has now been changed.
Thanks, you live and learn.

Thanks for your continued help. Hopefully it has now changed! I don't find this an easy sight to understand fully as a new member, I would like to be in a position to send personal messages as I am sure they would be beneficial. Personally I believe that notes especially for new members navigating you round the sight would help.

I have one of those bears, except mine has a jumper! Smile

I think two main subjects in a shot is always difficult - it sets up the problem of which to look at. If there are two people (I'm counting the bear) there ought to be some rapport between them. This is beginning to sound a bit weird! I'm sure you know what I mean.

Welcome Brian. Good to have you on board Grin
It takes a little while to settle in to a site like this. Once you have PM's available, communication has the potential to be much easier & possibly more effective.
Be assured that no-one who has contributed to this submission has any intention other than to help you.
Give it time, be patient - keep uploading and enjoy the site.

We look forward to seeing lots more of your work.

All the best

Jack
