Nice work, keep it up. Composition and placement are excellent and the background matte choice is tasteful and adds a little story / context without distracting from the subject.
For me the shot is great, I don't mind the slightly overcooked contrast (it's certainly fashionable right now) and the look and eye contact from the model is nice. I'd like to see something done to just emphasize her lips a little more - a little less red in the mono conversion would just take care of that.
FT pretty much hit on most of what I was going to mention.
Overall I like this image and it looks like your initial capture was good, model pose is right for the type of image you wanted to capture. I agree with the comment about the right arm and maintaining the line through from the left but it's a small thing.
I like this - the shooting conditions look a bit harsh and the bright skylight has washed over the image - that said the effect works well and it creates a warm feeling. Generally the colour is really punchy without going overboard.
If the lens is "hunting" back & forth and won't settle on a subject that's often because there isn't enough contrast in the target area to lock on to.
This shot is a great exercise in storytelling, you can get a feel of what it's like to be there from this image.
Nice composition (cute little girl too and if she's anything like mine uses it to her maximum advantage!) her expression is really great and natural which is hard to capture with child portraits. Those are all things that are hard to learn.
I am loving the relaxed look of this portrait and the angle - this was absolutely the right angle to go for with this subject, I don't think getting level with her would have worked in the same way.
I'm enjoying this shot, I think this image is really two seperate images - one at the horizon and another at the shoreline and that neither one is particularly dominant as it is presented.
Hi - I'm new too! I think I have a handle on the critique guidelines but don't flame me if I'm missing something!
