Nice portrait, nice DOF, sharp focus, The modification by Midtog realy enhanses the already gret work. Would it be to mush to ask how was the MOD done?

I like the pose and the one red nail. The light is harsh and I suspect that is because the sunlight was strong. The hair and cheek appear overexposed on my screen. The green and the chair on the RHS are distracting. The B&W mod by Miptog has darkened the highlights and enhanced the image. A good attempt.

that's a nice, happy pose. I don't mind the bright green tones, to me they enhance the one red nail which inevitably draws my eye (the power of a drop of red in a photo!)
It might have been better to move more fully into a shaded area to take the picture as the sunlight looks very bright on the hair.
I'm sorry to disagree with Hector about the focus, I think the picture could be improved with sharper focus but it's a nice portrait nonetheless.

I agree with the earlier comments about the harsh sunlight and highlights and as everyone has commented, that one red nail certainly draws the eye. But for me personally I find that more of a distraction as I'd like to see the eyes being more of the focus of the image; which seem to be smiling but are hidden in the shadows.

I do like the thoughtful pose though and you have a lovely contented happy expression Smile

I really can't give critique when I failed so miserably myself but do like the pose, the title fits very well.

I like the thoughtful pose, and the one red nail really grabs the eye.

I would however tone down the green background a touch and maybe have used a reflector to get a bit more light into the eye area.

I do find it intresting that all of us SP'e-rs seem to have been desperate to look anywhere but into the camera!!
