I'd have gone for a stronger backlight to brighten the white cloth (and get rid of the distracting wrinkles, the skin tones for me are just verging on being overexposed.
Interesting. I saw this pic and was intrigued by the pose and the tension in the arms, and what feels like a tension in the face too, and wondered if this might be a gothic (not Goth) theme or undercurrent. Then I saw the title, which although she's a pretty girl, didn't seem to match the mood of the picture.
Sometimes the way one presents a photograph has a big percentage of importance in how it's perceived by the viewer. Titles, framing, pose - and my thinking is that you need another title to match what's actually in the photo.
If you were aiming for a pretty portrait then there are loads of things I would suggest, and they would involve the pose of the arms and the head, the direction of the gaze, the way the foot is distorted by the lens ..
If you want the viewer to focus on the face I am not sure this pose works well. What I see is big dark foot, small white face.
notnhing wrong with a nice foot cath
though I think the main issue you've got here is a slow shutter and lack of sharpness
the rest's been said
Agree with the above, Would add that the lighting is somewaht unbalanced & the pose looks awkward and uncomfortable for the model, This translates into what appears to be a less than happy expression....!
Thanks guys for your useful comments. I was attempting a fashion type shot rather than a portrait, which is why there's less emphasis on the face. I chose mel as my model because there does seem to be a sense of gothic undertones to her style I guess this comes across in the image. Photographically I agree it could have been a lot sharper.
