This would be much better with eye contact, but the smile is fantastic.
Also, if you could have moved her to the left a little so the tree filled the background, there would have been no distractions and left you free to concentrate on the woman's face.
The colours are potentially good, though they look a little muted because there is a slight red colour cast. I would have been inclined to use a little fill-flash, to brighten the colours and give her eyes a catchlight which would have made them seem alive and sparkly.

Same general comments as Nick. If you pop your flash up taking shots like this, the results are often better. If you ever watch a professional wedding photographer, you will see him/her use the flash constantly in the daylight.

Nice colours, and a little brighter does help, as in the mod Ive loaded.

A very beautiful and colourful lady from the Garasiya Tribe, Daleep, and I understand their dresses are quite exquisite, with a very individual style, and that they like to wear silver ornaments, like your young lady here. I think the idea of having their names embroidered on their dresses is lovely.
Your image has good detail and colour, but could do with a touch of brightening, probably because there wasn't much light at sunset. I notice that you used a high ISO setting, but agree with Willie that flash would have been a good option.
I don't know how much control you had over the positioning of your model, but it would have been far better to have her against a background that wasn't split in two, so moving her directly in front of the tree would have looked good, and I have done that in my modification, simpy by cloning some of the tree into the right-hand side. I also removed the large flower on the right because it doesn't look as though this one belongs to her.
I also lifted the shadows, and brightened the image.
Pamela.

Hi Daleep,

Its an beautiful capture, the bit about the name is interesting, they are know to be very colorful and full of life, but they also endure a lot of hardship in their day to day lives.

I felt the rough details from the rough area of the country she comes from are there on the image just need to be pulled out.. I also feel that the image is a bit cramped for space with the flower in the foreground..

Also agree with Pamela and Willie on the ISO, I think that is the last parameter one should fiddle around with as its the one thing that alter the censor's behavior directly .. just a personal observation.

Have, tried to bring out the details on the face, and also tried to dull the flowers as I thought they were overpowering the image.. have a look.. Take nothing away from the original, its just another version Smile
