Default Intentional overexposure? Your opinion please

Newbie here, been taking shots for about 2 months after reading several books.
I prefer to take artistic shots, low light, harsh side light in dark room.

What do you think about intentionally overexposing a shot for a bright effect? Is it a good or bad idea? Does it make me look amatuer?


My wife was sitting in my office with a window behind her and the sun shining through. Looked like a great shot so i took it.

Top of her head is over exposed, too bright. But I thought it looked good.

Can a shot like this sell? Does it look pro or do pro photographers dislike this?

Thanx in advance.
