If this works. This is my beautiful wife letting me use her as the guinea pig for some of my first shots with the new T3i.

You composed it all backwards. Her body is facing right, and so for there to be a lot of dead space at her back looks unnatural, it feels like something should be there. Also, there is too much dead space above, switch to a portrait orientation and get more of her body in the shot, or compose lower and cut off that point in the beanie to get more of her in the frame. But good rule of thirds (just wrong third :P), and looks like you got exposure right as well!

Agreed. I had one of her on the right looking right but I had a huge yellow ball right in the middle (streetlight) ruining a nice photo...here's another try for the heck of it.

How did you get her to climb up that skinny tree? OK just kidding. Let's see the other wife shot with the streetlight and maybe someone will clone it out for you.

Posted the wrong one there. Here's the shot with her on the left. Maybe the streetlight isn't that big of a deal?

Firstly, your wife is far too pretty to be called a guinea pig, although I do hope her head isn't the same shape as that hat :D

Anyway here is my attempt, cropped to remove some of the right hand side. The yellow blob cloned out and a bit more blur to the background.

Drop your ISO to 800 and shoot f4
With a T3i you should still be ok handheld.
She looks comfortable in front of the camera so take advantage and keep shooting.

Agree with the comments on composition. Really like the final edited shot - hat and all. Looks terrific.

Thanks for all the feedback! I know I have much to learn but this site and it's members really seem to shorten the curve.

I just added some brightness & sharpness to her eyes in the final toned down the red on the tip or her nose. I think the eyes would benefit from some more work though.
