That was the original plan, but I kinda liked it when I chimped it and went with it. You think more ambient or just a reflector would be best? I've played around indoors, but was my first time trying something like this outside. Thanks for the feedback.

EDIT: By original plan and shooting earlier, I meant I wanted to use the sun as some rim lighting. At this point though, opening up the shutter would've been too much ambient overall for what I wanted.

There are 2 issues that come from the disparity between flash and ambient. A reflector would have softened the shadow on the nose, but it wouldnt address the problem with her hair line being lost into the background. A compromise might have been by simply moving the light closer to the camera axis so that shadow on the nose/mouth is diminished.
