That suggests that those voting on 500px are unsophisticated photographers without an appreciation for what makes a usable photograph.

IMO that suggest that those who voted my image (there are a lot that didn't) see photography from another perspective different to yours, not better or worse, just different, that's all.

I think a mixture of the pose and the trees not being vertical just make it seem more off balance than if there were no trees.

You are right, but I almost never crop my images.

I try to remember, when shooting portraits and fashion to shoot a bit "loose" to permit cropping from composition depending on how the picture is used. It also permits cropping for effect, such as tilting.
That's one advantage of the high pixel count available today.

This is a good advice. I like to get things right when I take the shot, and because of this, I hate to crop images in post to reframe them. But on the other hand, I have a problem with leveling the camera and this would allow to rescue some images.

Nice shot though probably can be done with regular strobes also. For me it would be better if the subject was little back where there is sunlight and use that as some rim light.

Saying that you want to get it right, compositionally, in camera, in my view, means you've never worked in situation where there is an art director or other supervisor with "their" view.

When I started doing commercial photographer I had cameras that had 2:3, 2:2, 4:5 and 5:7 formats.

The "crop" of camera is an arbitrary and meaningless constraint. There are times I've shot something where I knew that I had to do a three or four image composite to get the panoramic image I wanted. Other times shooting with 2:3 that I knew I would be cropping to 2:2.

With film, art directors generally specified film size based on the size they new the image would be used in print. Then cropping of the image was indicated in a layout based on page size, aspect ration and how the image would be used in the ad or editorial. There was never a view that the camera aspect ratio had any meaning related to the image.

I do know that there is a school of thought that wants to follow the HCB street photography approach of in camera framing. In my view that's a restraint that is more meaningless than meaningful.
