    I was hoping some of you could look at/critique this portrait, I am 15 years old, and got a DSLR a year ago, a Nikon D40.

    I don't like the colors, I hope the girl isn't in liver failure. I don't like the camera angle, shooting down->up is a bit tricky and dangerous b/c if you have a model of heavy set you'll get double/triple chins and NO1 wants to see their imperfections. Safer route is shooting up->down.
    I do like the triangle on her right made of trees, I do like the fact that there's a tree NOT growing out of her head (the one that is by her right shoulder). Her right hand is cut off - don't cut limbs, it isn't nice or polite :).
    You did fill the frame, which is nice and either on purpose or accidentally you left enough space for 4x6, 4x5 and 5x7 crops - this is something not a lot of people can do or actually DO do :)
    keep shooting and improving

    Much thanks, the colors were just an experiment, i also have a B&W version, and the full color obviously. The angles were also experimental, thanks for sharing your opinions, and trust me, the requests are piling up :) the crops were a bit of both, i was thinking towards her liking some nice prints.
    thanks again for the critique
