Hey,
I am new to doing photography on a higher level. I just got the 550D a big step up from the old point and shoot I had. Tell me what ya'll think of my photo. I want to get better at photography. Thank You

The image is a little soft. I think the overall feel of the photo is too dark which may be in part from the vignette. Bring up the brightness in her face some. The vignette is too much. I do like the pose

Have you got the EXIF data (the camera settings in the picture properties)? Providing this will help others to help you.

Adding to what has been said above, the vignette is overpowering, which makes an already underexposed image appear quite dark and flat. The focus on the eyes is also a little soft, and there is a little too much headroom that you could dispense with.

As for the model, she looks like someone who could be good to work with. Can you post the original image?

Yep, vignette doesn't work on this shot IMO, bump up the exposure or brightness a bit, maybe pp the iris in the eyes to help it pop out more. Would probably benefit from a sharpen mask as well. Other than that, good look, nice model, like the lip ring actually on her too.

Her face looks a bit orange. Did you crank up the contrast and saturation a bit? I find Canon dSLRs tend to capture skin tones a bit on the orange (under exposed) side.

The pose is very good, and I think you're off to a good start. But I have to agree with what's been said already too.
