I must say bravo first because this doesn't like like posed.
But I would like to comment on two points.
One: It would be good if all of the rim of the hat on the top right corner was included in the frame. And some of her hair too.
Two: Apply some software magic to make her skin whiter; Hers looks like a ''Solarium Orange'', unacceptable for a ''forties'' pic.
Actually you can try a black and white version too! It would look good...

First, you are so fortunate to have the perfect classic model who fits your 40s plan beautifully. With respect to Pablo above my impression of your skin colour is that this is theatre and she looks delicious.
I notice some photographers who are much better than I prefer not to have the crop nip anything at all. For some reason this does not offend me a bit. I often nip wing tips and bird tails a little with the crop / composition.
Many expert photogs complain when I do this, yet others compose with a little nip here and there so probably a matter of artistic taste. Glad you did little or nothing with the eye whites. This is sheer excellence in my view. TG

Cracking shot Keith. A tad soft or you could just try and sharpen her eyes. Great composition. Cheers Jack.

Wonder if diamond hard focus is ever needed in a portrait. Guess I am defending this image as it is. Trying not to offend,...just one more opinion. TG

Many Thanks to all for your votes and for my first time User Awards. I am absolutely delighted to say the least.

The young lady was posing for another photographer when by chance I was passing. I didn't have time to ask her to pose for me, I just managed to get a few quick shots before she moved on. I take on board the comments about the tip of the hat missing, but the shot was taken in quite a hurry, however I am delighted with the outcome.
I will post another of this young lady soon.
