Hi Larisa - welcome to EPZ Grin

I'm sure that the Critique Team will be able to give you much more indepth critique on this one, particularly on the technical side of things, but I thought I'd say what I see as a 'regular' viewer Smile The pose and facial expression is lovely and natural, and the lighting is nicely even. You haven't included any EXIF data, so I can't speak specifically on what settings you used to take the image with.

One or two things jump out at me straight away with this one - there's a lot of undetailed blackness in the clothing at the bottom of the image, which is a little hard on the eyes and I think detracts from the overall lighting effect. It would have been good to see more of the clothing details. I don't know what or whether you did any post processing, or what software you use, but you could try lightening this area up a bit?

I also think that the image could stand a bit of cropping from either side, and perhaps up from the bottom a little.

The other thing that, for me, is very apparent is the softness in the upper part of the face and hair, which seems at odds with the sharper details of the chin and lower face area. Did you do any skin softening on this one? If so, it needs to be a bit more evenly applied with her eyes retaining sharpness, and which they currently don't have.

Overall though, I like it. It's quite a formal portraiture style, although she's got a lovely open face which adds an element of friendliness to the image.
