Lucky guy. Here is my suggestion: Go with a tighter crop and get rid of the edge on camera left and get rid of some head space at the same time. After being drawn to her face, the light corner pulls my eyes away from her. If there is room on at the bottom, you might play with dropping the frame to just above her elbow. Nice shot of a pretty girl.

what he says. the light on the left side of the frame and the in focus masonry on the right are distractions for me.

Would you like to buy a vowel?

Agree with both above. Pretty girl.

Think about NOT using the word "retarded" in a derogatory manner - it insults those who cannot defend themselves - and hurts the ones who love them. Please see: (external link)

Great girlfriend, nice shot, but as stated, cut that bright spot on the left, don't want anything to compete with those eyes. Cut about 1/3 of the space above her head, wait all this has been said before, maybe I should have stopped at Great Girlfriend! Great exposure, the black jacket is nicely lite without losing detail.

Stellarvue 90mm Fluorite, AstroTech 111mm and 72mm, Celestron CPS 1100, Losmandy GM-8, Olympus EM1.2, Modified Olympus EM5.2 and Olympus Pen F. Obviously more gear than talent.

All the comments above cover things pretty well. Have you tried a portrait crop orientation instead of landscape? Her head is tilted forward quite a bit, so a portrait crop would have to be pretty tight - not sure how much of the wall and jacket you're willing to lose. Lovely gf.
