This is a more appealing photo of Charlotte than your previous one. Smile

However, the busy background does not really help here - something a bit plainer would have been better. The image also has a slightly cool tone and could perhaps do with a touch more contrast via a curves adjustment. I have addressed both issues in the mod I've uploaded for you.

Hope this helps.

a nice shot in general, but the mod above is rather better. DSLR's rarely produce print ready images straight from the camera - they are not designed to. They produce an image ideally suited to some small manipulation in software, as here. The designer assumes the DSLR owner is a bit more enthusiastic than compact owners and will post process.

Possibly would prefer eye contact - get the distinct impression that she is looking at someone else.

I actually prefer the original version. It has a softness that is appealing and the duller background produces greater depth for me.

It is the Charlotte's pose, gaze and expression that attracted me to the image and while I cannot for a moment guess why she would look like that, I do like it very much.

I'm with wellspring on this, I think you've done well . It has the feel of an informal moment being captured, (although you've set out on a photoshoot). Again, I feel the background in the original version works better and focuses more on the subject.

A very attractive image.
