Seems your DOF's a bit shallow - lips seem sharp but the eyes don't - just how open was that lens? Pink background element behind her left shoulder's distracting. Unfortunately the height of the hat's left her a bit low in frame... eyes generally look better above the half way mark... not much you can do about it, but I'd still crop the top half way between the very top of the hat and the skull.

Also a bit of a fifty-fifty divide of left v.s. right - Rule of Thirds or Golden Ration proportions might work better here, either showing a bit more of her or the background.

Lighting's a bit flat, but guess you were working with what was there.

( It's not easy to emulate Chunli ;-)a )

Cheers, Tony

I like everything about this picture save one small nit pick. Her right ear creates a point of tension with the margin. Everything else is very right, including the blurred background.

Hey guys,

Exposure: 0.017 sec (1/60)
Aperture: f/1.8
Focal Length: 50 mm
ISO Speed: 1000
Is the EXIF.

A bit concerned with cropping half the hat, as I think too much detail will be lost :(
Agreed on the pink thing T.T a pity, but was candid after all!

Thanks for all your comments.

I need to find me a Mall like Chunli's....

Not sure if there was a misunderstanding... suggested crop:

Ahh, For some reason I thought you meant half way through the skull....

Awesome.
Thanks for your help
