    Very nice, and a rare occasion where I think the landscape orientation goes well with the portrait. I kike the way her skin tone really pulls the eye (brightest part of the image) and how the darkest parts (hair, scarf and top) really frame that and make her pop with the contrast difference. Background is good to as the tonal values don't compete. I would give a bit of consideration to cloning out that one grass (i assume) stem that is bottom and on the subjects left hand side.

    but nicely done indeed!

    I'm immediately drawn to the hard, angular lines in her face and expression that make her look one that is strong and unique. The very first thing my eye snaps to is her jawline and slightly smirky expression.

    I find the contrast between the dark hair and porcelain features very appealing

    ty :)

    She was surprised when I told her that I want to photograph her because she is beautiful, she doesn't seem to think that way. She's also a really ok person

    I did not word that well. Looks like some blur was brushed in on the background and spilled over to the shoulder and arm. Could be cleaned up a tad.
