Nice image, but a few imperfections need to be removed in my opinion.

Hello Steve,

I stopped at your pic because she looks like an actress I know of. She is not who I thought she may be, but since I am here, it feels right to share a comment with you.
I don't mind the fill in flash, not all days are bright Sad but there is one thing I should ask you to consider before you shoot her. Colour. I can see what you mean about her green eyes which are pleasingly echoed in the nature around her (on the construction which she leans on). I also like how green blends with the brown top she wears and how this colour is shifting vividness by its presence on her scalp. gets darker again on right side as we look and joins her eyebrows ending in her eyes. Nothing matches her PINK lipstick. Although I am not wearing any, I think the colour she has chosen ruins the colour amalgamation. Something more muted maybe? Thankfully manipulation tools exist and you can correct it, play around until you find something suitable.

A minor concern is the hair that is about to get in her mouth, I would had asked her to pull it back, left side as we look looks falling better.

That's me done, up to you now.

Hello Pablo,

Thank you for th elong and considered comment Smile I like the lipstick myself and her fingernails are pink, (unvarnished). As for the hair across her cheek, it was a spontaneous shot, stopping to move the hair would possibly have lost the spontaneity. I could photoshop it at a later date of course.

hey Steve,

I had not noticed her nails were pink, they look so natural...

I suspected about the hair being part of "unprepared" look; the hair on the left is also mildly wild.

It's your pic, you are in charge Smile
