Not a bad shot. I think the eyes are a little soft and the crop is a little off. I think you shouldn't have cut out her right arm and her head. This is just my opinion.

Thanks for your comments. I did not see that first, but after a while I think I could have made a similar comment if the image was not mine (the problem is: I made the wrong decision for the crop, not someone else ;) so it took more time to understand what was wrong). I will try several crops and get them printed. Thanks again.

The second crop improves the photo to where you can't do much more to make it any better in my opinion. Well done.:)

Nice job on the second crop. It looks great IMHO.

I like the 2nd one best, but I'm not keen on the harsh shadow across her shoulder/chest.

The photoshoot was around noon so we had plenty of sunlight. I was focused on lighting corectly the face (no flash used, only a reflector). I was pretty happy with this one. The shadow did not bothered me. May be I shoud...
