Good skin tones and detail, and I like the window-like reflection of the soft box on the eyes.

La luz en el rostro es perfecta hay buen detalle. Creo que el reflejo en los ojos se puede evitar, pero es una buena fotografia.

A little tightly cropped, Debu, but a very good portrait, shame about the reflection in the eyes. Carol

Great eye contact with model.Lovely girl.
I've lost points at CC for cropping off top of head also!
Nevertheless you are excellent at capturing all sorts of interesting portraits.

Like the skin tones but the soft box reflections in the eye spoil them, it need to be higher to further to the rhs as we look at it, to take it of the iris.

To tight on the crop of the top of head.
The lights cutting in to the iris of the eyes is a distracting.
Lovely model with nice fine detail.

A really nice portrait and obviously taken on board the "cut-out" look comments by providing a nice simple bg. Not sure that pale blue is the right colour though. Try to pick a bg colour that is complimentary to to subject by choosing a colour that is complimentary to skin tones clothing and fairly dark to stop it washing out the subject. The reflections in the eyes are too big and spoil the portrait for me although eye highlights are needed and can add so much to a portrait. The crop makes the image unbalanced as you have space left and right but none above. a crop on the right to avoid any blue would balance the crop on top. You need to crop tighter to concentrate on the facial features or give the subject a bit more room than here as has been suggested by other comments. When you upload give us modifications as it is easier to show you what we mean by our comments.

The pose and look into the camera is very nice however.

Hope this helps
