Great shot, seems a bit soft. And her eyes need to be nice and bright. Other than that I like the framing and she is very photogenic. Keep it up!

like they said above. One picky thing is how the flap of neck line material is rolled over on the left side of the photo. It is somewhat distracting.

I hope you were going for a soft look :)
My observation is it is not well framed (too much in back) and seems to need straightening....looks like she is leaning back on a chair. Crop out the bottom and behind her (straighten) which moves her to the right a bit plus gets rid of some distracting background detail.

The biggest problem i see is that the model has such beautiful eyes and they are OOF.

Thank you Chomish! That is something I will definitely try to work on in the future.
