A potentially appealing photo but perhaps with elements competing with the main subject for attention. Getting in a bit closer or zooming in a bit may have helped. Alternatively you could crop the picture as in the mod I have uploaded.

The portrait is excellent, but the out-of-focus areas on the left are quite distracting, as are the yellow spots to the right of her face.

Yes I agree with your comments about competing elements.

I was trying to take a portrait in context of Christmas but I think i failed here somehow.

I do like the crop though - it keeps the elements but makes the image stronger - I will be adopting that with the original for sure.

Back to the drawing board!

Many thanks for your comments and suggestions
