I'm working on catch lights so I really thought this photo was a great example. Nice composition. Great color and framing. I really like it. Good use of "triangles" in the pose.

A prettymodel I would have gone in closer to get rid of annoying top left distraction
Nice overall tones and detail

What a pretty girl and well taken photo. I do wish the top of her head hadn't been cropped off. It seems like it is the style any more to crop off some part of the head in a portrait but it seems a shame that her head isn't whole.

You did a great job catching the viewers attention to her eyes!

If there was a catchlight in her other eye, it would be much more powerful. still a very nice 6.

Very nice! The two small catchlights in the right eye should be cloned out, though.

This is a nicely taken photo but I feel if you were going for a tight crop on the head you could have taken a little bit more from the arms as well. Just an opinion but I think it would have given you better balance. Good Luck. 7

First of all you have a lovely model. I always say it is hard to take a bad picture of a great subject. Critism: I feel you needed to get some light into her left eye. The three highlights in her right eye are a bit distracting, with none from the other. Tight crops semm to be in, but I like her hair more than her sweater.

Lovely portrait, you worked the lighting perfect, fully complimentaing her wonderful face and feature. Possibly cropping tighter on her right side to reduce the shoulder/hair region may add to this. Good luck on this portraiture study. -7-

I really like this photogaph. I think that the lighting is very nice, I like the chosen pose and the composition that you have created. I do have one problem with the capture. The left eye doesn't show the beauty of the catch lights like her right one does. If it were not for that and a few stray strands of hair, you had captured a very nice portrait.

Very nice portrait, I like the overall composition and the close personal feeling it creates. There are a couple of details I would ask about:
- I'm usually ok with mulitple catchlights in the eyes, but it this case they are so distintive that I find them a little distracting.
- Just a little more fill or the left side of her face (right of frame) might have brought her left eye out of the shadows enough to add some depth to her face.
- This is very minor, but she has some hair that is going up and over her shoulder to the left of the frame. Lines are a strong element of composition and in this case I find the lines, created by the hair, drawing my attention to the bright area in the top left corner of the frame.

Beautiful eyes

Very nice. I like the glint in her eye and the leading line of her hair to pull your eye down. This is a realy good portrait.
