Please critique, I shot this at 70mm f4 0.8s ISO100, I had to set up fast just in case she moved.

If "she" is your main subject then I would have used the 'rule of thirds' and put her in the bottom left corner of the grid. She's a bit too centered and it looks like there's enough going on in the BG to pull that off nicely.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

Biggest problem for me is the rather busy b/g perhaps a slightly lower angle and larger aperture may have helped separate the subject and allowed better placing within the frame.

The background has so much going on and is in relative focus so its hard for the eye to find or even stay focused on the girl.

I like this shot, I know the 'rule of thirds' but I like here where she is, the b/g is a bit busy but it works for me what I get from this picture is (the story) that even in a big town you can still be alone. but I am new to photography and dslr's and still have a lot to learn. but i do realy like this.

I like it as it is a photo you can look at again and again and see something new, so for me the sharpness is a plus. I think it would be best blown up nice and big and framed to give it room to breathe.
