I really like how you've composed this shot. Beautiful tones make this a winner.

Let me try again: WOW!

Yeah, that was closer to what I meant. Dude, this is awesome. You blew the doors off with this one. Sweet buttermilk biscuits, that's an incredible shot. The lighting, the composition . . . if I ever got speechless this would be the time (thank God I can still type, though). You got a shot where the model filled the frame, you got a great depth of field (awesome bokeh on the trees to generate the separation between your subject and her environment). I like the light on the face (no catchlight but the angles, tones and texture are what generate the story in this shot so that's not a negative here). The only thing I'd say (and this is no criticism of the model as everyone has physical quirks that make them unique) is that the sharp line of demarcation on her nose makes it stand out due to the incredible quality of the rest of the shot. I don't think you would have wanted her to turn her head anymore (thus keeping the nose from breaking the plane of the cheek) but you might want to selectively highlight the brighter edge of that noseline and give it a little fade or drop the contrast or something. Then again, I can't imagine anyone ever getting a shot that better captures the essence of a look from this model. Others may take a shot thats as good as your capture of her but I can't see anyone taking one better. You really hit a homerun with the elements of this one IMO.

Looks like good post-shot production work, too.
