    Nice composition, perhaps a bit roomy. good sharpness, reasonable exposure in difficult glare-y late-day sun

    Perhaps reduce the contrast by lightening the dark side and vice versa.
    note that the cheek on her right side may be blown out.
    If this was shot in Raw you may be able to recover it.

    An outstanding image; i liked the original as well as the edit, but the thing is that they talk differently

    Regards :D

    The only thing about the original is how blue the white of her eyes are. I'd whiten those a touch, and then I think its fine.

    I like that, it has a nice golden tone to it. Are her eyes different colors?? :D

    3 is my favorite. It is very good as-is, but I think it would be SMASHING as a black and white, maybe with just a touch of boosted contrast.

    How about this? We lose the nice color, but I think it really brings the focus on her eyes and the lighting of her hair and face:

    Maybe sepia, with a bit of edge blur?
