Photo Information
The late afternoon sun offered a nice glow around her and showed off her overshot jaw, but she doesn't care.
I had to do a bit of cloning at the bottom right ( not very well i might add )

Nicely done. I like the warm conversion. The cloning wasn't too visible (until you mentioned it ) Slight burnt out highlights but to be honest they probably don't matter too much here as the eyes are such an attention grabber. Something to watch out for next time though.

Thanks Tim, i tried to lose the burn out but lost the affect of the pic. so had to leave it as it was.

Beautifully captured Maria, I think people could pay a lot of money to a professional photographer and it wouldn't be much better than this.

Nice portrait. I like the usage of the lights and the composition and the highlights aren't disturbing in my opinion. I didn't observerved the cloning issue until you mentioned it in the description.
