Greetings from the Critique Club...

Boy, this is a really nice picture, tough to find constructive critiques. Keep in mind my comments are all merely suggestions and musings from my point of view.

I love the expression on her face! Who couldn't have happy feelings looking at this? The exposure is right on the money and the colors really pop.

I feel slightly disconnected from her and think it's because she is looking away. I think if she had the same expression but was looking at the camera, this would have scored a full point higher. Speaking of her eyes, they are really sharp, almost unnaturally so. To me, perhaps a bit over done probably because they contrast so much with the softened skin. I would have liked to have seen the crop a little different regarding the hands. In general, it is not good to bisect a joint or to cut off fingers and I think that hurts the image a little. Just a minor nit, since this is advanced editing, I think I would have toned down the bright spot above her head. You might have even cropped a little tighter on top.

Overall, I like this image and probably would have given it a 6 to 7 had I voted in the challenge.

Hopefully these comments are somewhat helpful to you.

A nice portrait showing personality. the crop of the hands and whatever she is holding though is awkward.......The crop needed to either include the hands or crop them out completely. Lighting though is very good on this, and the depth of field is great to provide a really good background
