Welcome to EPZ Ross.

This is a nice shot is nicely exposed and lit. The composition can be improved, as she is a little too low in the frame (aligning her eyes with the third rule), and I wonder if it would have benn better taken in portrait format.

I have loaded 2 mods with the following incorporated:

Crop to get her closer to a third composition. If shot in portrait mode, the hair would have survived.

Sharpened the eyes and hair, - you can lose detail unless you sharpen after you re size for the web.

Reduced red a little.

Applied a small amount of skin softening in Mod1, and further softening using diffuse glow in mod2 for a different look.


Hope this is helpful,

Regards


Willie

Potentially very nice indeed, but a bit at a loss to your landscape composition with the head slap in the middle. I would have cropped rather closer with the head more to the left. It really doesnt matter if you crop the hair top and bacck - you don't have to show everything.

Tones, exposure, etc excellent - just not keen on composition.

Thanks for that, yeah the rule of thirds would have done this justice upon reflection. This was the first model I did a shoot with so I was kind of nervous and firing shot off like nobody's business!

Thanks for the help!

Ross.

Simply, I agree that the image works in landscape format, and it would be ruined if in portrait format.

She is too low in the frame, as has also been said, but overall a well lit and relaxed looking model.
