I think this is an excellent candid composed very well with her head perfectly placed in the frame. I see where Frank is coming from and a bit of eye contact would be the icing on the cake.
I have had a go at a mod to try and make the colours a little stronger using curves and sharpening. I also added catchlights to give the eyes more life.
Great work and I hope you find the mod some use.

Many thanks, Frank. To be "frank", I couldn't find any space to the left anymore Smile I agree I should have shot more frames though it was quite difficult to single her out without the other 10 getting into the frame (not an excuse though Smile Thank you again for taking out the time to have a look at this work of a novice!

My gratitude to Phil too. I could see a sea change in the your version. How I wish I had those post-production skills. I learnt a bit of Adobe LR on my own and that's the dead end for me as of now in this department. I really intend to teach myself Photoshop someday.

Best regards..

It is a nice shot. You seemd to have de saturated it a bit, so Ive uploaded a mod identical to Phil in mod1, and in mod2 Ive increased sat.

A well timed shot and a nice moment captured.
