It was between this picture and this //my.opera.com/SaphireIo/albums/showpic.dml?album=70647&picture=4614119 picture, both taken in natural light at sunset, and both straight from camera (aside from cropping), which may work against me since this is an Advanced Editing challenge, but I don't really like the overly-neatimaged look. So,here goes...

I would've like this a lot more had the headphones not been in the picture. I think they take away from the subject.

Lovely light, and great sharpness for what must have been quite difficult conditions.

I would guess that you have upped the colour temperature in a RAW conversion (although I may be completely off the mark). Any way, I am not entirely convinced by the colour of this - it seems just too orange, rather than giving a pleasing sun-kissed look. The inclusion of the headphones seems somewhat out of place.

She looks jaundiced. Bringing down the reds and increasing the blues in the highlights would've given this a bit wider color range while keeping that sunset light in tack.

The headphones are an unnecessary distraction, unless of course this is an advert.

I don't understand the headphones being in the image.

awesome model, great pose, awesome light, way to fill the frame! Did i mention awesome model? My only complaints are that (1) the image is just a tad soft and (2) i'm not sure the headphones do much for me. 8 from me anyway
