Im not sure what doesn't hit me about this photo...Your subject is a good distance from the background so it is blurred well enough...maybe the chairs are distracting behind her, or its the blue jacket she is wearing..but who am I to judge fashion...I think it is the uncomfortable look on her face, is she staring directly into sunlight? Post more/different poses

The blue is probably my least favorite thing. I wasn't there TO shoot, rather shot while I Was there, so I didn't mention it. I'll find a few more.

This picture is actually the second of 3 in the burst I took of this shot (The picture I first posted was the third.)
Unfortunately, a kid ran through my shot as I took it, yielding the following crop the most area unaffected. I think that this frame would have been the one I Wanted, unfortunately.
No PP has been applied to this.

The third and final shot, different setting, 5 minute (poor) PP job applied to the RAW.

Overall, I still like the first one notably more than these other two.

Try shooting in open shade. I tend to avoid direct sun when I do portraits.

...But still the clever north wind was not satisfied. It spoke to her of towns yet to be visited, friends yet to be discovered...

I personally think the BW here is much better! I agree with using shaddy areas to shoot in. BTW she is a Pretty girl

I think I'll play around with the B&W a bit more... That said, part of the reason I liked it was the deep greens in the background... Thanks for the input.

I like shot 2 alot better, but it seems to be suffering a bit from motion blur, kick up the shutter speed. The black and white doesn't "pop" as much as I think it could, but I maybe thats because the direct sunlight is harsh leaving her hair completely black and her face contrasting. Just tweak your levels...I am photoshop stooopid, but that works for me.

Girlfriend's are great...because you can use them to practice photography...isn't that sensative?
Is it a better tweak? Its up to you. Photography is so subjective, do you like the photo? What do you think you could improve? I have certain photos that certain photo buffs in here would throw in the garbage first chance they get...Its what you see. The blacks and whites do look more saturated in this last one good job

Lighting much too harsh. Background distracting. In darkroom, might have softened her face, and given her softer skin tone. Last black-white still too harsh.
