I'm not sure that I really like how dark the right side of the picture/face is, but I do love the warmth!

Very nice angle, great clarity and sharpness on the face. Nice expression. Love the composition and shot. Nice work.

Piercing eye. I wish we could see the other eye with maybe some reflected natural light. Excellent detail and angle of picture. 7

I wish more of her left side was showing. The right side is stunning.

Never been a fan of face half shadow / half light. You've captured nice skin tones and a neutral expression. The flower behind the ear is a nice touch, and adds some color to the upper part of the photo.

A striking portrait. I particularly like your use of strong vibrant colour, which suits the look of the model perfectly.

nice use of color, obviously a stunning model - I would like to see just a little fill light on the right side

You should buy (or make) a reflector. Nice shot but the harsh shadow on half the face really pulls it down.
