The image has way too much green and yellow. I looked at your other post and it's got the same problem. Is the colour cast intentional?

No it's not intentional. I edit with Lightroom. Not sure how I got too much yellow.

The subject, the clothing, and the brick background are all interesting. I'd like to see more room above the subject's head, though. Also, it might have been nice for her to be positioned somewhat differently such as slightly to her right with her left shoulder nearer the wall. This, combined with the photographer positioning himself a half-step to his right, would use the horizontal mortar lines to better advantage. In any case, I think positioning her off center might look better. Although I like that she's holding onto the fur vest, the positions of her hands seem a bit awkward, and my eyes are drawn to them.

I agree with the comment above concerning color. Also, the darks strike me as a tad too dark.

Yeah everything is yellow. I've never seen a yellow brick wall unless it was painted that way. Maybe make a slight correction so the wall looks straight as it looks tilted to me right now? (and she looks tilted to the right. -her left) This one is much better to me than the other one you had posted, though I agree with the poster above about the hands.

Here is the image with a pretty close WB. I just added a photo filter via Photoshop. Cooling filter (82). This why you can compare the two.

The image as posted does not have an embedded color profile so it's hard to tell just how the image truly looks. OP, I would suggest you repost with an embedded sRGB color profile.

FWIW...the concrete comes close to the proper gray for color correction.

Its an ok shot. Its hard to tell from one shot how your shoot went. It seems you were getting too fancy with hss. What was the point of being at 1/500?
