Nice shot but in my opinion far to much going on in the background which distracts from her, like her pose, its very relaxed and there is a bike lock on the blue metal !!!!!

Yes I thought about taking the lock away... and probaly should have... however the point of the shot was to mix the ambient light of the background with the flash on the subject, but I take your points, but would have left the background especially with the overhead lights...

I like the shot overall, though there are some areas that can be improved, or looked out for next time.

The verticals are converging, so the pillar shes leaning against looks quite crooked. The lock should go. I like the alignment with the subject and that long straight line in the street. The verticals are likely due to use the short end of the lens from a low position?

The overall colour tone look a little cool, - may be what you wanted, but it may look better a litle warmer, as her face looks quite white.

I would add some space to the left in post processing to align her on a third as in Mod 1.

Mod2 is an attempt at straightening verticals, - but as you can see it would take a lot of effort to ensure the subjects proportions were maintained.

Mod 3 is a more successful attempt at maintaining the models proportions while straightening verticals.


Hope this is constructive,


Regards



Willie

Personally I like the unvertical look as the others said it lacks warmth,
I like the shot as a whole I feel such a good looking girl should leap out of the image a bit more, The blue piller you put her against is perfect but I have removed the chain on my mod as well.
All the best
