BrionyYou have a very cluttered Background, the fence and trees take the focus off the model with a large white area to the right with the arm loseing detail, try to keep the background as plain as possible, stone walls make great backgrounds and skys also if you shoot from a low angle. The models right arm is wrong as it is just in front of a not flattering area of flesh, trying to be as tactfull as I can with this comment! You also have to be careful with open fingers pointing towards the camera as they can look very large! you do not say what lens you used but with full frame an 80mm works great with portraits and cropped frame a 50mm prime works well and not to expensive, one idea is to work around the model if you are in the open, do not be afraid to move and keep talking as you are shooting making the model more reseptive to you, if you get on well with the model keep using her!

nav45This could have been a cracking shot, the only thing letting it down is the burnout and the strange border top and bottom!

william got framedAs a Photographic judge you judge the whole image including border! this border is overpowering the main subject so would loose a lot of marks, none of the main image is sharp so overall would not do well in competitions, the colours are great because they compliment each other.

Last UploadHi Peter
I hope you read this comment! I was a professional Photographer for over 40 years with a studio doing Weddings Commercial and Portraits, over that time I photographed over 2,000 Weddings, when I retired I did not pick up a camera for over five years, even now I hate doing portraits, what brought me back into Photography? A friend dragged me kicking and screaming to a camera club, ended up Chairman, bought a digital and some lenses and for the last two years have not stopped photographing Landscapes, seascapes, and wildlife, my life now resolves around photography once again.
Photography is about sharing beautifull moments that you have captured and not about winning, hope this helps.
Your photo is exposed spot on in a difficult lighting situation, keep it up!
