Hi Dayne!

She's beautiful! She has a gorgeous smile. I like her pose. The colors are very nice with the trees and all.

Here are a few ideas.

This would be better in portrait. Make the photo of her. Your profile doesn't say editing is okay, so I won't post the crop that I did, but she makes the photo when it's just her.

Even if you like having the right 2/3 of the photo with just background, one of the trees has a white marker on it that is distracting. My eyes go from her eyes to that white tree marker.

The last thing is that the focus seems a bit soft. This is based on the large version of the photo on flickr.

I think the landscape crop looks great. I'd use the rule of thirds and slightly crop the right side so that she's not that far left, but otherwise, great shot. I agree with mathogre, I'd PS out the white marker on the tree. Nice image, though. ;)

Great job!!! I agree with collier above.


I just got my first pair of glasses that I didn't think I needed. I apologize to anybody in the past year that I said their pictures were out of focus lol.

The vignette is used to draw the viewers eyes to the center (brightest portion of the image). In this case your run of the mill vignette does not work, because it draws your eyes to the center (the brightest part of the image) as it should, but the model is far to the left. She should be the brightest part. IMO redo the vignette centered around her.

shot looks good, model is cute and has good pose going on. I agree with the above, you should crop is a little.
