    Your friend is a wonderful model and I like that her skin tone and clothes stand out nicely from the warm tones in the background. I think you also used an ideal depth of field.

    I don't like that we have no idea what she is looking at and I wish she was a little closer to the center of the frame.

    Thnx a lot for the comment Mike!!
    Yes, I think you are right that she should be a bit closer to the center. Maybe I should try another cut of the pic. But then I didnt like the bag she was carrying...!
    And good that you dont know what she is looking at...because she was just posing!

    Hi Mike I like the portrait very much and don't mind not seeing the subject she is looking at. Do like the placing on the left of frame but might give it just a little more room, seems tight !! Sweet bg, look and feel !!

    Second the motions for more space behind your friend's head. Her magenta hat does a great job of concentrating one's focus. I might even try a mild global desaturation (bring down the entire image) to increase that effect.

    Thanks a lot for your comments!!
    Alfred I think you are right that is a bit tight, I should possibly try another crop!
    Lex I dont understand what you mean by that "Second the motions for more space behind your friend's head." Could you possibly explain it a bit?
