We were taking photos near the train station in Dickson, TN. I'm sure many people won't like the "dreamy" effect - but I like it and that's all that matters with me! :)

Want my honest opinion?

Love it well done :-) Nice tonal qualities. Interesting person (and pretty I might add).Good control of natural lighting.

This might sound kinda corny, but I do believe she is on the wrong side of the tracks. Compositionally with the tilt of her head and angle of her body I think having the tacks to the right side of the frame would have been more interesting.

The background just doesn't work. The tracks coming out of her shoulder are wrong. On the other hand, nice, crisp portrait contrasting with blurred background. Almost...

Nice photo. Friendly. I keep wanting to go down the tracks and see what is around the bend, though. Maybe a tad less DOF would have avoided that distraction and make your model pop out more? - 6

slightly too smoothed, nice backlight, appealing smile and face, background too distracting (maybe greater DoF next time?), has overall potential.

The curves on this photo were very well done - Good lights and darks. Nice expression.

It looks to me like a higher crop on the bottom would have made this a more flattering portrait of the subject, without losing the nice effect of those railroad tracks in the background. I love the lighting, though.

I believe I recognize this particular train track. Maybe the model should have turned more toward the track. Good dof.
