Pretty girl and very good pose, but I feel the highlights are too far gone for my tastes; others will undoubtably feel differently.
Best wishes,

Tend to agree with Andrew on that one. Toned down a little, and perhaps with a small crop, it'll look great.

Wonderful photo and this case I've no personal opinion about highlights areas onto the face of the girl...I appreciate this portrait as it is

Nice photo of a pretty girl. As others have noted the face is quite bright, she could pass for a Geisha

Quite agree have viewed it on a better monitor than the laptop where I produced it. Toned it down and it looks alot better. Many Thanks.
The pose is due to the amazingly large chocolate fudge cake she was just about to demolish.

Lovely portrait, but I feel that the right hand 1/3 of the image is wasted, so could be cropped out, and maybe a little more space in front of her, and also crop the bottom to lose that bit of arm showing in the bottom left of the image, so that everything then concentrates on her lovely face.
