Your shutter speed seems a little high for a shot like this. Also why use such a high ISO? I love the image and it's sultry feel to it. Why go to your maximum focal length? Take your shot at the lens' best focal point, because with a full frame camera you can crop in tight without losing quality. I would also put your date and time right, as it's on Jan 1st 2000! You certainly have the right model to take some stunning images.
Superb portrait. Does it matter what ISO or focal length you used when you're getting images like this? It's the final image that counts,
Superb shot !!!.....lovely ethereal quality !!!
I agree with Alan, that it's the final image that's important !!!....even if it was taken with a 'box-brownie' ?.
Quote: Does it matter................
Of course it matters about the ISO and shutter speed settings used in taking any shot.
After all, that's why they are there, so we can match the correct setting to bring out the best in a shot.
I like this shot Alistair but I would like it much more if those head hairs were not across the nostrils and around the mouth. They are the first things I noticed and my eye goes straight to them now. And that eye needs to be pin sharp mate.
Apart from that and the slight grainy look, it's a good shot I reckon and get's a vote from me.
I think it's a great shot, sultry is a great definition used.
As for hairs, I wouldn't even have noticed them, because my eyes went straight to hers and the head tilt. Sometimes photographers are a bit too perfectionist for they're own good. Personally, I like irregularities like this, it makes it unique to the photographer and model.
Great shot, I love it!

With the greatest respect to Alistair and yourself Loren and this doesn't refer to anyone's work in particular but I noticed the hairs etc because of my self respect and standards that I like to try and work to.
As anyone who is a published tog will tell you, the book, magazine etc will only except an image that is of a higher than normal everyday image standard.
I, like other togs on here, just like to get the best result possible but I suppose it all depends whether or not you are passionate about your work because only with passion will you get your very best results.
As I said, my comment isn't aimed at this or any other image in particular.
Enjoy your photography.
Laurel I appreciate you commenting on my picture. Criticism is the only way my photography will improve and I welcome it.
Thanks to you and everyone else who has commented .

You do ok mate, don't you worry.
A white hair growing out of the right nostril.
Very unattractive. And not front cover quality I'm afraid,
Great image otherwise...
