    Welcome to the forum.

    It's rather bright but I think that's what you were going for here, so that's OK. I'd like to see a little more DOF but there is nothing wrong with how it is here. The one thing that I don't like, is the angle/direction of her eyes. Her eye-lids and lashes are obscuring her beautiful eyes. I think it would look much better if she was looking up at the camera...or at least a little more toward the camera. Other than that, I think it's a great shot...I'm sure that she will love it.

    I think the angle of the photo is very nice. I understand what you were going for here, but I still think it's a little blown-out.
