    Happy St. Patrick's Day!

    I'm still learning, and I'd appreciate your comments as I am trying to hone my eye.

    Before asking for your comments, I'll provide my own critique. In terms of composition, I think the photo is pretty good. I like how the illuminated eye is positioned close to the "rule of thirds." I might have cropped her funny below the nose, but I'd be curious to see what others think. If I were taking the picture again, I might zoom out a bit to get her mouth.

    In terms of exposure, I think the image looks pretty good. I'm a little dark on her right, but the catch light in her right eye and the highlight and cheek bone might be enough to make her right side just light enough. (though I expect I'll get some dings for not using a reflector).

    What do you think?

    Here's a small version of the original:

    Thanks,

    ehh, it's not bad, but I would like to see more of the face, the crop is too tight
