Once photography enters your bloodstream, it's like a disease. It's painting with light.

I like the light and flare. But her expression doesn't do it for me unless you're going for a moody tone. Would prefer her eyes open and looking at camera

I like the setting and the sun flare may have been nice for the setting, unfortunately, her face is just too dark...would be nice to see the somber look she has.

I took this photo without her even knowing, so there was no posing at all. Suggestions recorded thank you ;)

I agree. The face could have been lighter. This was one of the very first photos taken when I bought my camera. Again, suggestions appreciated and recorded. ;)

As others have mentioned, face is very dark/underexposed.

Too many stray hairs, should use healing brush to remove them.

Expression doesn't really do anything for me, maybe because you cant really see it.

Its tough to properly expose backlit subjects like this without some sort of fill.
