This is an awesome shot. If you want to avoid getting a shadow of you in the eyes then you need to put a light source between you and your subject. Judging from the reflection this is a natural light situation. I would suggest getting a flash and mount it off camera on a stand with an umbrella. This will give you a nice catch light in the eyes without anything else. It is a very nice image and I think highly underrated IMO. Hope the suggestion helps.

The kind of portrait that makes you feel you know something about the personality of the subject. Well done.

The honest, warm expression is what really seals the deal on this. Very nicely done.

It is a pity that there are noisy patches on her face, it looks like from editing.

A good basic portrait, with a pretty smile on her face. Eyes have likely been pimped, but not overdone. Good job here.

nicely done, just a nitpick, the teeth are different shades of white, needs a cleaner job on the burning
