Lovely golden tone to skin and hair. Attractive image in some ways.
I do feel that the lighting could be improved. I think it's pretty much essential that at least one eye can be seen clearly, it's slightly spooky not to be able to.
In general harsh shadows don't suit women.
Good exercise in the effect of directional lighting.

I like it. You didnt mention the assignment, but I assume its a self portrait.

I like the pose, the softness and the light. I agree that lifting the shadow on your left eye (camera right) would look better.

I would also add space at the left, where youre looking, and crop a little on the right, just to move your face right a little more.

Ive done all the above in the mod.

Hope this helps,

The light needs to come round a bit to put a bit more light in the eye socket. Just too severe as it is. The light you are using must be very weak indeed to need such a long exposure and high ISO. You really need more strength in the light.

Guys, is there any way that someone can buy membership for me? Its difficult from SA, it sounds so expensive, like $3 is R30, and a year is even more. I know there is a way to pay for overseas stuff. Can someone give me advice ?
