I just graduated from a 400D to a 50D and I am loving it! What a difference in speed and IQ! I have taken this picture of a friend for an online class assignment. Using window light, we had to choose a concept for our photo. I was going for a romantic feeling, with her looking out the window, day dreaming about her lover.

I am very new to portrait photography, so I would appreciate any C&C. Thanks!

The bokeh is good on the background hair and the lighting is good on the eyes, with a quick bit of photoshop this could be a lovely picture!

I also agree with the first two posters. Just a bit off PP and the eyes do look a slight bit OOF. Your idea about a romantic daydream works for the shot.

perhaps the eyes were part of the dreamy effect and not intended to be sharp? was this done in PP or during focus? If I were to keep this one, I would blend or clean up skin near the chin/mouth a bit and boost a tad of contrast.
I like the pose and DOF.;)

Thanks everyone for the comments, it is much appreciated. I do have to concentrate on getting better focus in the eyes. As for PP, none was done, since the prof wants to see our pictures SSOC. I also agree that some PP would make it better.
