    Just a candid shot for a coworker early this week. I thought it was decent for poor light and not being prepared.

    That much is true: it is a nice, friendly, open smile photo for being candid, in poor light, and totally unprepared.
    I miss some light in her eyes, though. The given light made them all black, hollow and undefined. That is the risk with spontaneous, given-light-only portraits.

    But her smile REACHES her eyes, I can see as much, and that is GOOD!

    That's what I was thinking. I guess I'll go work on it again and try and pull the lighting up around her eyes. She had naturally dark eyes anyway, so she may like it reguardless.

    The hair covering her mouth is takes away from this photo.

    When you fix the little things, it'll be really nice one.
    Good job.

    Yeah, I would definitely try to clone out some of the hair in her face. Like it was said before, she has a great smile to make up for the lack of light in her eyes.
