Like the hair rim light, but the face seems under exposed. There also seems to be a red colour cast on part of the face. The bottom right corner of the frame distracts. Have uploaded a mod with a slight crop, and a high-key effect that has lightened the face.

I totally agree with Michael's comments and his mod is a good improvement. I have, however, offered my own interpretations: the first mod is cropped to lose the black in the bottom right and then diffuse glow applied; for the second mod I applied a curves adjustment to brighten her face further.
A lovely portrait of a beautiful woman nonetheless.

Its a nice subject obviously, and an attractive pose. It is underexposed apart from the rim lighting around the hair, however you exif data shows that you fill use flash, so you were doing exactly the right thing to try some fill light. My guess is that you used the on camera flash and just didnt have the power needed.


There is a strong red tone in the skin, both as a result of underexposure, and the reflection of light from the colour of her dress. One other factor is that your Canon will tend to favour red in skin tones. If you look very closely at her left eye (from her pov) you will see its almost entirely red)


Ive loaded mods. In both Ive tilted the shot a little, adjusted exposure and colour tone, sharpened, and lifted the eye detail and colour. Mod2 is softened with a diffuse glow similar to what Miptog has done.



I hope you find this helpful,


Regards



Willie

Whilst I agree with the above comments, for me, I am sure someone else was actually photographing her from the front and you sneaked this from the side? She is posing for someone else, and, if not, that is what it looks like.

I would like eye contact.
