Lovely pose, model and color tones.

I must say...the first thing I noticed in this photo was the cobweb by her hand (I don't like spiders) :-) Other than that, I like the composition and a nice, quirky mischief kind of smile you captured.

should have cleared out the spider web along the railing next to the concrete pillar. overall nice composition, i'd probably crop 5% off of the left side. nice colours, good lighting. i'd say the hand underneath seems a litlte like its "floating", perhaps if she were holding the rail with both hands instead of having them overlapped it would look a little more natural. 6/10

very pretty - demure. well posed and lit. The green dress goes nicely with the background and the pipe/railing she's leaning on.

Good exposure, nice setting. Maybe too much concrete post for my liking, but I am fussy!

Lovely image. I think it was very well taken. I am not counting down for it but I would have liked it better without the spider web.

I am reminded of Jennifer Gray in Dirty Dancing. Any way top vote from me because the model is so adorable!

imho, a tighter crop would help bring out her face. good dof.

lovely colors in this one, and the title fits her expression and pose very well. the roughness of the concrete contasts nicely with the smoothness of her skin. and of course, she's all kinds of cute :)

Cute girl. Nice use of shallow DOF. Good sharpness in the eyes where it counts. Nice coloring. A little more "three dimensional light" could be helpful, but this is a really nice natural light photo. Good luck in the challenge!

Nice even lighting and moody shot, spot the cobweb by her fingers, hope she isnt scared of spiders

very, very good! the cobweb is slightly distracting but GREAT photo

Lovely crisp photograph. You can see the detail in the concrete pillar and model and the background is nicely blurred so as not to detract from your model. Well Done!

Nice DOF. I think you could have cropped more off the right but it does give the photo more depth.

Nice skin tones

If you used NR tools I think a little less of the opacity would've benefitted this otherwise VERY LOVELY shot. Great crop, lovely angle, nice highlight of the hair. My only issue is the aspect of the luminosity leading to the unnatural skin appearance.

If you didn't use NRand this is really her skin well color me embarassed.

What a shame to see so much of the *natural* skin texture ruined. 2

Lovely smile, beautiful eyes. I really like the composition and the lighting is spot on but that little spiderweb annoys the hell out of me.

Good work. The shyness comes across to me. I might have been nice to have cleaned the cob webs before the shot.

wow shes such a uniquely pretty girl, the hair cut and expression is nailed, the spider web though, thats a bit distracting but kinda adds character to the location

Very nice picture. Beautiful girl. Very nice color balance. One thing...probably should have cleaned the cob web out of the post.
