On my IPad she looks OOF, also I think it would be better if she was looking at the camera.

She's out of focus, and the crop doesn't do anything for me--Can you adjust it a bit? What do you like about the photo, the moment? the person? the look? the setting? Whatever it is you love, highlight it in a different way than you've done here. It's a little too snap-shotish.

Those pose, setting and subject are nice..

BUT its out of focus, her legs are brighter then her face and i'd like to see some depth of field..

i've also never seen the horizon of an ocean seem to slop downhill before ;)

please forgive me for saying, but it looks like a snapshot on a holiday taken with a mobile phone..

I think a tighter crop from top right down to just above her head would make the shot more dynamic, killing the dead space above and also introducing the rule of thirds..

Welcome to POTN. Looks like a nice memory, but you will get some great advice here on how you can make this (or maybe your next) shot even better. Please keep shooting and sharing.

Maybe your relationship with the girl makes you like the image more than a casual viewer. I find it odd her eyes are closed. Almost looks like it was an outake - she blinked when you were trying to take the picture. The overcase skies in the background aren't very attractive.

First impression, cell shot with a instagram filter on it.

As others have stated, it may be your relationship with the young lady that makes it special, i have plenty of those shots myself. Is there a particular emotion you're trying to convey or simply a snapshot of a pretty lady on the beach?
