Glasses must be a nightmare to work with - my eye wanders to the top right of her pair, probably because the lenses are different strengths, and so there seems to be distortion.
Love the crop and the inclusion of part of the necklace SmileSmile

Beautiful portrait, so well lit, good detail and natural skin tones.

That line of reflection from her glasses might be cropped out ?

A lovely portrait Richard. I'm not sure what the mark is on her left eye, on the inside of her glasses. Not the shadow one........Sandy

Glasses don't normally work, do they? But here they are a positive bonus to the shot. Excellent exposure and colour. Like the dark tones.

Like the set up and pose, Richard. Angles. Her face at a slight angle, glasses not quite symmetrically level, the slight tilt of the hat. I scrolled the image to cut out the top half of the hat and liked it even more - but hey, you are the pro at this type of shot.Smile
