    Well, I think her eyes look very nice. She does look a little um... naked? LOL But maybe you wanted that to be that way. ;) If it were me I might have moved it over to the left just a little instead of having her right in the center but that's just me.. You did a good job! :thumbup:

    My first impression was "wow, is this work safe?" So I agree that she looks like she doesn't have anything on. She also looks a little light / blown out to me, but other than that it is a very nice portrait.

    Looks like you used a fill flash up close, so the lighting is sort of flat and one-dimensional. Her skin is also very bright and white, and the features generally lack contrast. The model is pleasant enough, but she is not exactly showing a lot of emotion. I would just like to see a little more expression or something. Also, the tree being so close right behind her head is not working too well IMO. There is a lot of detail in the bark, and it competes with the subject.

    Its not bad, just kind of plain.

    You have a very nice high key image that can be changed to anything you want with a little editing. I like it very much.

    Thought I'd give it a shot. I liked this and as others said, in editing it can be made into more. I only had bout 5 minutes to do anything so it was a quick one. Like I said, nice job you did there.
