    What are your thoughts on this portrait? Ways to improve it? Things to change on it?

    Under exposing the background a stop or so would help emphasize the subject.

    Sounds like an idea I'd like to try. Can you tell me how to underexpose only the backround?

    Thanks,

    I like the wind in her hair, however I think those few strays that cover her forehead could be PS out.

    I'm not a big fan of portraits in direct sun. The parts of the face in the sun usually end up harsh and shiny, while the parts in the shade end up dull. Using a reflector to bounce light back on the part in shade can help a lot.
