Please put the image direct to view, rather than providing a link, - people prefer this option.
In saying that, I really like this image; a great seperation of model from the background.
Maybe 1/3 to 1/2 exp increase on the model to lift her face a touch?
I am drawn to the flower over her boot (once I noticed it)...
Nonetheless, a great first post, if this is your entry standard, I look forward to many more excellent images from you.


Tons of enthusiasm, loads of kit, limited skill...

Finally I understood how to put the image, haha,
Thank you for your comment I really appreciate it.
Yes, I use curves to overexpose a little bit her face.
Thank you so much, greetings from México

Overall picture quality is good.

Spend some time learning how to pose your model. The female form is about curves and how to make certain areas of the body seem thinner or more pronounced. In your photo (having been shot straight on), the hips look wide while the bust-line is hidden.

You could have her turn the hips 45 to 90 degrees to camera left, weight on the back leg, bend the knee on the front leg, and turn the face towards (but not square) the camera.

You will then get more definition in the upper body and face while the hips and legs look thinner.

Keep trying new things and you will get to something that you and your model will really like.

This is a great advice.
I care very often how should be the technical aspects like the ISO, speed shutter or aperture and not put attention on how the model should look.
From now on it is something I will bear in mind
Thank you Gart, I will be practicing.
