    Looks a little too bright to my eye. Skin texture doesn't look natural at all (looks like vinyl). Color also a bit weird.

    This is why I don't like digital.

    I think it could benefit from a little more control over the light. I like the placement, but think that using some flags to feather some of the harshness away and perhaps give more depth?

    I also don't really like her expression. Not because it's too sad but because it is a little flat and boring IMHO.

    Her face is just a tad too bright in my opinion; other than that very well done.
