This is a nice pose, but very much underexposed. You can probably see its quite dark compared to the mod Ive loaded, - where I can see some evidence of face painting or decoration on her cheek.
I would also suggest, as in the mod, that shes placed higher and more to the left for a better composition.
The cause of underexposure is likely the high speed you selected. the camera was in Manual mode, and you made both speed and aperture settings. When you do this, the exposure meter in the camera will indocate underexposure, so you need to try slower speeds until the metering system indicates a proper exposre, - otherwise you are literally "shooting in the dark", - no pun intended.
You would be better leaving the camera in aperture priority mode, selecting the aperture, and let the camera look after the speed. Just keep and eye on the speed to make sure its not too slow to cause camera shake, and if it is, then increase ISO, or use a larger aperture, - or better still, if available, auto ISO.
Hope this helps
Thank you for your critique Willie. It is very useful and I like your mod. I have uploaded one also.
Thats much better!
