    This is a portrait of my wife. I'm not much into portraits but getting more interested. Right hand was cut off a bit and I don't know if that is a problem or not. Would like to hear from others who do more portraits.

    I'd like to see more of her face. Most of it is turned away. Exosure looks good. And yeah, I think her whole hand would have been better.

    Nice start to portraiture!! I want to learn more myself, never delved into it yet. Upon first look I'd say everything looks good but the crop. With your wife looking so obviously off to the side, and some light coming at her face, it's obvious she is looking off at something, or out a window. To give that impression better, I'd have a wider composition with her more off to the right, and more space to the left (our left) of her face. When things have a strong directional look to them, I like to see some wiggle-room off in the direction they appear to be heading to...does that make sense?

    I like her pose! It's a nice capture.
