Took this photo for a friend's daughter for her senior portrait. I honestly couldn't come up with anything else to submit, so we'll see how it does. I only have one strobe, so it is pretty obvious that I had to adjust the curves for just the background. I hope I don't get voted down too much for that.

her smile looks a little forced, but still a nice portrait

Very well done! Beautiful model and great composition with this shot make it a pleasure to view and vote on. I even like the high key-ness (is that a word? hehe) of the background. Her smile is natural and those eyes just draw you into the shot. DOF and skin tones are spot on. Great job.

Coming back to bump up.

beautiful face and smile- but the dark area at the top of her head bugs me - I don't know if it's her "roots" or a shadow.

Well composed, well processed. My only gripe is the model which is a bit too much congenitally perky for my taste. She is pretty and alive ... but just a little too much so. Back down on that and you've got a 10.
