    This is one of my first attempts at portraiture. Critiques are more than welcome.

    Overall, pretty good job.
    Few points to lookout for are straw/cup as was mentioned above, u cut her head - i have mixed feelings AGAIN but you cut her ear - I don't like that a BIT.
    Now, keep in mind few little things - PRINT. If you're print a 4x6 might not be a problem but 4x5 won't come out b/c you framed too tight.

    Being a total noob, but trying to learn...

    for some reason the first thing I concentrated on was the few stray hairs on her forehead. I found that distracting... then the straw.

    Great subject, nice pose methinks...

    Shutter speed is too slow for the focal length used giving you a soft image, which is a shame because she has nice eyes, get them in focus
