This is Megan, my youngest daughter. She sat for six photographers the other day and it is amazing that we were taking pictures in the same area but they look so different, depending on the photographer.

She's gorgeous. LOVE the hair, of course. But the eyes... so emotive.

Well I would bet that none of the other five photographers captured her as beautifully as you did.

Very nice compositionally and a fantastic blend of femininity and toughness (the stare and the piercing)

Cracking shot and I hope she liked it

That's not too bad of a finish. I think yours did better than mine lol. I love her hair!

Looks like a gold reflector low on camera left. Would've liked a tighter crop just above the top of the clothing line.

Very well composed.

pretty young woman and solid lighting - but there is something about the pose that makes the image seem unbalanced and a bit awkward

Sorry, I just can't be comfortable with the eyebrow stud. Apart from that, which quite negatively pulls my attention. Yes, I know: it is my problem, not hers.

Nice pose, good DOF control.

I think that with this composition the tilting of the head is causing me to look at all that blank space on the one side. Because the crop is so tight I would have had her tilt it the other way so that my focus would have only been on her and more specifically the stare which you were going for.

Weird pose

Would like to see more light in her eyes, great dof and crop... 6

Shame it wasn't advanced editing, you could have cloned out that distracting thing in her eyebrow. Otherwise, pretty decent effort.

OK pose, I dunno about the head tilt and her expression. Lighting is a little flat.
