Hart-

Welcome to the forums. I'm not a pro so take this critique as a suggestion only.

Nice image. Good colors. Great use of 'rule of thirds' and I like the flare....Obviously pretty model.

A couple things....It doesnt look real sharp. It may be due to downsizing and compression for web. The hot spot on her hair wraps around a little too far towards her face losing detail. If it was slightly more behind, it would have been a great hair light. Lighting looks like it was not modified, or was too far from the model, but height of light camera right looks good per the catchlights

A very little nit pic is your logo where it is on her left arm...it makes it look like a bruise...One of the first things I noticed.

some excellent points here...also, check your light ratios. Her left side top is very bright in comparison.....quite contrasty...which may be a result from less modified light.

Thanks so much for the C&C, this was my first attempt at rim lighting on my own. I agree, the angle isn't quite right and the sun is too bright on her hair. In regards to the quality of the picture, this was a second edit (I was just playing around with layering the bokeh) and I ended up editing an already compressed JPEG and not the origional RAW image. The model was a friend, so it wasn't a client... I won't make that mistake with a client! ;)
