Hi Sergey, this is a nice portrait with a lovely smile. Compositionally I feel there is too much space at the top and I think I would lose whatever is intruding on the rhs. Finally I feel the shot is a bit underexposed. I have attempted to address these issues in the mod though I am still not happy with the crop.
Hope this helps.
Phil

Hello Sergey. This is a nice and I also really like the Red Squirrels in your portfolio.


Phil has provided good advice and a nice mod already. I would add that you might consider flipping the shot horizontally; adding a little sharpening (in addition to exposure as Phil mentioned); and reducing the Red a little by using colour balance, and sliding the Cyan/Red slider to Cyan = 12, and the Yellow/Blue slider to Yellow = 3 for a better skin tone.

In the mod, Ive cropped in a similar way to Phil, - flipped the image, and also lightened her eyes, and added two small catchlights. There are catch lights there already but they are a little dull.

There is no exif data loaded so I dont know anything about the shot settings, or I may have been able to provide better feedback.



Regards



Willie
