Beautiful girl and a nicely taken shot but I'm not getting much, in terms of personality from the expression. Good Luck

Beautiful portrait. The girl has a good expression but I wish her lips hadn't looked as chapped. Some editing could maybe have made them look better. 7

Pretty shot, well framed - the expression is very nice & the processing was well executed.

What a great portrait! Engaged and detached at the same time. Love the framing & B&W conversion.

This is a really nice photo that really jumps out at you.

There are two things that I think could improve this:
1) An extra light in front to give more detail and light in the eyes
2) The model's cracked lips and discolouration to the right of her mouth. Maybe this was intentional, but to me it seems a bit out of place.

I like the intimate candidness of this...

Freckles are timeless. Like the look and the B&W conversion. I normally like image grain, but you don't have that, you got yerself noise in the upper left. I'd have ditched it with NI and kept the NI away from her face. 7
