This picture shows a wonderful "soft texture" to it. The lighting and colors are fantastic, and the subject is interesting.

I am mixed about the centric nature of the composition. The background here does seem to add to the image, but the centered almost all there composition isn't as strong as it could be. I think it would be worth trying to crop the photo and wall out on the right, and make a squarish format portrait of her with no background. It seems to look good when I cover it with my hand. Try it and judge--it may or may not be better.

A well-lit candid portrait with some "life" to it.

Good subject, composition, lighting and focus, really like her facial expression, fits the title (however incorrectly you've spelt it :P) well.

what a lovely subject. i can only imagine the stories she has to tell. i hope you are getting some good comments and suggestions, and that if this doesn't score where you want it to, that you don't take it personally. just keep shooting and submitting, and i'm sure that you will get to where you want to be!

The crop here feels odd. To me seeing the top of her head and the entire photo on the wall in the back would make this more comfortable and would help me zero in on the wonderful character in her face instead of being distracted.

Lovely portrait of a woman! I feel as though I'm sitting with her conversing. There's just enough of her environment to know she is in her own space--at least it feels that way. The color of her skin is just beautiful--what a wonderfully young old woman!

The lighting on the subject is excellent as is capturing the moment but I find the cropping and the background to be a little less than ideal...I would like to see the entire head and a less distracting background...

A good portrait - I think a tighter crop on the subject would add some punch.

I might clone out the partial photo in the background and try it in black and white as well. Has powerful picture potential. (6)

I bet she has a lot of great stories to tell. The photo on the back wall makes this shot to look more like a snap shot then a portrait. Perhaps it would have looked better in B&W as well.

I would like to see this in BW - no marks off - just think it would look really good as well
