Very beautiful... Even better with no logo.

Otherwise, this is a perfectly dreamy outdoor shot. It' more than faintly reminescent of Sarah Moon's pictures on GAF 500 film - misty, dreamy, soft-focussed.

Slight compositional queries (hair jsut out of shot, for instance) fade into insignificance compared with the overall style and mood. There's nothing that's significantly wrong, and lots spectacularly right.

Yes a beautiful image. This is just the type of photograph I personally enjoy, and a lovely model.
The colours and processing are good.
One point looking at the camera settings you used. If would have been preferable to use a lower shutter speed and lower ISO. You did not need 1/3200 sec whilst an ISO of 500 will lower picture quality especially with your older camera. If you intend to print the image to a large size this is even more important. The base ISO with your camera will be 200 ISO (check, but I almost sure) which will give you the best quality.

Very nice and even better with no logo. There is more to this than you are telling us though, some processing. I too, just wonder why you needed an elevated ISO and thus such a high shutter speed. Possibly the change in colour rendition at higher ISO.
