Well I took the suggestions from my first post and made a few changes to the picture. I Bought a poster board and bounced the flash off that to the girl to diffuse it a bit. It was a little windy but it turned out better than the first ones!

I know the watch is a little shiny but what else could I do better?

She could have took the watch off lol. Im no strobist master so I cant really tell you much about the lighting. The lighting is a bit harsh. Maybe let more ambient in and bring in a reflector. It seems a bit oof too.

The watch was necessary. I had to have 5 random objects in a picture that my teacher chose and the watch was one of them. What do you mean by a bit off?

He said OOF, not off. OOF = out of focus.

The harsh lighting is alright in my books, but I agree it needs to be sharper. The face does look a little OOF and that's an important area of the shot.

oof, not off
oof is out of focus, and I agree with rob

good composition-just need to make sure the focal point is on her face (bridge of her nose) and not her arm. only other thing is that blob of sky in the upper left corner-very distracting IMO.

What were the objects?

They were a woman, watch, swing (the chain is part of a swing), tree ( background) and fingernails. the class is called photography for the creative mind which is odd since this is our second assignment and we are about to end the semester. The objects just have to be in the picture. It doenst really matter if they are an integral part or not

I'm almost totally ignorant so take what I say with a grain of salt. I think I would have placed my flash on the other side to brighten the side of her face that was closest to the camera.

A wee bit of fill light (camera left would have brought out detail of the model's hair.


I may not be the village idiot, but I'll do until
he gets here.
