Pretty model. The main bit of crit from me (as you've asked for it) would be about the lighting. The light from the camera flash is very 'flat' and maybe even a tad strong. Ideally for this kind of work you need off-camera flash (that you can adjust the output of), or at least bounce the flash off a reflector, that will help add mood, contrast and texture to the image overall. It will also help you eliminate unwanted backdround shadows - or to use them creatively.
Like it, really good for your first shoot, a couple of very minor suggestions if I may,
The dress and the model is slightly over-exposed, possibly bracket next time or if you've used fill in flash, reduce the output, the area below and behind the hem-line is slightly distracting, almost impossible to clone out, was their another set of windows nearby with a plain block b/g ?
Thanks guys, I never noticed the shadows off the pillars until mentioned. I used the flash on full instead of say quarter. Her dress in fact was acting as a reflector in most cases and was pretty difficult to take a reading on.
Thanks for your comments, I've jotted them down for the next time.
