I like the processing and model's expression, but something about the comp doesn't work for me.

Third photo I've looked at in a row (from different posters) where the top of the subjects head has been cropped out. Is this a new trend that I've missed out on?

I've seen it mentioned as a valid isolation and framing technique in several books - generally on a much tighter crop than shown here.

Nice catch on the expression but may I offer some comments:

1. IMHO, portraits shouldn't be taken from that close. It invariably has distance perspective distortion. It looks UWA - the head is out of proportion from the (larger) shoulder. The buildings are leaning outward - I want to jump up and keep her from falling.

2. The building colors look a little washed out and over exposed - the red brick is coming out too similar to skin-tone - I'd rather see some contrast with the backdrop. The WB looks a little off but it may be an optical illusion from the lack of backdrop contrast.

3. I'd like to have seen more shadows - lighting is flat.

I like the face angle - nice.
