Paul - I think you have captured a really wonderful portrait here. This very attractive girl looks so happy and cheerful in her delightful headware. Considering the glare of the sun, for me, the exposure is just right.
I am no expert, but here are just two things I should like to change and they are refelected in the mod.
First, I feel the area to the right of the picture is serving no real purpose and because of the person on the other side, it serves only to unbalance the image.
Second, the woman on the other side plainly has her eyes closed or cast down, which to me is in opposition to the main character. In the mod I have made her eyes rather more 'ambiguous'!
I've just added another mod where I have cropped a little more - it feels a little better to me!
I hope some of this is helpful - it is only my opinion and I hope others will offer different and constructive suggestions or opinions also.
All the best - David
