Way better pose.

Little soft on the focus - intentional?

Mac's right about the focus: the patterned wall-paper behind is sharp; Katie is not. This is so lovely that it's crying out for a reshoot (and why not when you have such a lovely, cooperative model to hand?}
Whie you're at it, don't cut off her fingers next time!
Best wishes,

Andrew

Great picture - there's definitely a lot of potential here. I agree with Andrew's observations - it deserves another try with the focus sharper on Katie's face. Also would be nice to try it with a plainer background and more natural light - maybe standing near to a window on a cloudy day? Jeremy, do you own any prime lenses, say a 50mm with a wide maximum aperture? If not, you could buy something like a Chinon 50mm F1.7 in mint condition on ebay for about 10-20 and this would be a fantastic lens for taking portraits and blurring out the backgrounds. Keep posting them - I hope you don't think the comments are negative as they are definitely not intended to be.
