Excellent skin tones, color, & clarity on this full portrait capture, Trevor. The model has a very demure subtle & beautiful smile. Unfortunately, the photograph is somewhat degraded by the very bright white highlights background on the left side. This distracts the viewer, momentarily in looking at her beautiful face. However, this image can be 'saved with a very simple' remedy. Just perform a "close crop,"...from the 'left side of the image frame,' into the mid-lateral portion of her lovely brown hair,...which excludes "all the white" from your "new portrait picture." Just try this tight crop, and then re-optimize all your image parameters, & 'repost this image!' Good Luck.

Regards...Peter Smile

No critique point,..."for this Basic Facet in Photography???"

"Shame on the EPZ Critique Staff." 'Quite "biased," in my Opinion,' in awarding critique points. Come on, now...LexEquine SadTongue

'I am appreciative of the consideration' for the granting of a point for my critique & suggestions for this nice candid portrait, taken on the Day of the Royal Wedding. Now, Trevor,...I am waiting for the 'reposting of your fine image.' Thanks, to the 'Critique Team' for acknowledging my point of view. I did not intend it to be taken in a harsh light. Now, I will continue to spend time on images that could be critiqued & benefited from a positive perspective.

Hi Peter,
Sorry for the lack of response, Have not seen the comments before, I agree that a tight crop would work here as being a member of a camera club and getting marked down for the hated white light in pictures I can see it now. I will try the crop at sometime in the future and repost to let all see what you are on about. Thanks for the critique much appreciated and again sorry for not getting back to you sooner than this.
