Greetings from the Critique Club:

Amanda is your entry for the Delicate challenge and whilst being a portriat of a very attractive woman, I'm afraid it does not convey delicate to me.

The backlighting is lovely on her windswept hair, but it does cast deep shadows at the nape of her neck and side of her face. I have looked for traces of fill flash, but see no highlights in her eye. The background is really distracting and messy, you must be careful to ensure your horizons are level with such a closely cropped portrait. Focusing is really good as is DOF. I don't know what processing steps you have used, perhaps a hint of USM/sharpening. Including processing details in your comments prove really helpful to others.

Her pose is very good with her hair leading the viewer into the centre and to her face.

A good effort and you are sure to get better with more practice.

Good photo but she doesn't look delicate to me. She looks strong willed and energetic.

how fragile is she? that hair on her collar bone is not very pleasant, and the dutch angle does nothing for me.
