Hi all,
Please share your thoughts on the next picture. What is good ( if there is anything ), what is bad.
Thanks,
Nic

I like the shallow depth of field. I'd crop it a bit tighter, maybe cutting off some of the top of her head, but not much (others will disagree with this advice, of course). I think the single biggest problem with it, though, is that there are large parts of her face that are overexposed. Not many people like that, including me.

High key or normal key - this is a question. I find this photo rather personal, interesting but not directly impressive...

take it again . without the flash going directly on to her face . looks like an on camera flash . way to washed out even for a high key portrait . i see where you were going . and i like it , but your current approach is a little off . keep practicing , you will nail it on the head

Thank you guys for all the comments.
This actually the 2nd version of PP for this. I will try to post the first one when I will have the time. This one I consider also not that good PP, but I did not realise that I've put this one. The flash is not directly on the face, it was bounced against the ceiling, so all the bad exposure is from my bad PP.
I tend to disagree with smoothening the skin that much, but of course it looks better when there are no wrinkles.
Thank you all again for all the comments. By 'hearing' good comments we all improve our photos.
Cheers,
Nic

Her face/skin looks much better in that lower contrast looking shot ^^^ I'd increase the overall exposure a touch though.
