    Nicely done! I can't help thinking however that just a bit more light under the brim of the hat would have made it that much better.

    Looks like you went to a great workshop!

    Anyway... I don't know how valid my opinions will be since I'm only starting to learn photography myself. But, just by looking at it, there are some aspects of it that I like and some that I'm not really a fan of. I like the simplicity of the photograph, the pose of the model, and the crop of the photo. I am not a fan of the blue tint, however, and the shadow on her eyes.

    Thanks ! I think that too but i still like this picture i dont know why but i dont find it to be that big deal, but i would like to see some more light under the hat too, but i couldnt set the lights myself :( They were a lot darker, i tried to get as much detail from them as possible.

    Thanks for the reply, yeah i would do the eyes differently too but i couldnt move the lights myself. The blue tint was my intention ;).

    I'm not a fashion photographer....So I won't judge that aspect.

    Photo is sharp, lighting is nice, clean bg edit. Overall its a good portrait.

    I disagree with the light under the brim comment bc it is a fashion portrait, and she's not even looking to the camera, therefore the eyes have no significant gain to this photo. jmo though

    And I quite like the blue background, much better than keeping it white or grey. Adds some style to it.

    The only thing I don't like about it, is the fashion lol. Maybe I'm just too outdated when it comes to whats in style lol.

    Keep up the good work.

    I think @tirediron might be seeing the same thing as I am with the lighting under the hat...
    a little more light shot upwards (think clamshell lighting) would do two things:
    1: soften up the harsh shadow there
    2: highlight the blue paint mask and make it more visible.
    the theme is "blue", but what I would consider the most essential part of this picture pertaining to the blue theme is masked quite a bit in shadow.
    it really could just be a nitpic though...just mentioning how I see it.

    overall, I like this shot.
    focus, color, and WB are all good. I like the pose.
    definitely a keeper.
