    Sharp as a tack - I like the light and colour. I'd consider cloning out the dark line/con-trail thing upper left. Not sure about the angle of shot, looking up a subject's nose isn't usually a good idea but I still like it. :)

    I agree. Lovely portrait, the only distraction being the con-trail. I'd also add a suggestion for next time, to add a kicker light behind the model to get even better separation/a nice halo effect against the dark sky.

    the sky looks great to me, I wouldn't sweat the dark lines, that's how it looked. Her pose, with chin jutting sharply and our angle isn't flattering. Lovely balance to the lighting, very nice indeed.

    A lot of people are against the liquify tool, but if used correctly does wonders. I would make her nostril smaller, which would help with the unflattering pose.

    I think most people are against editing a person by removing flaws. There's nothing wrong with her nose.

    Who are they? In my world about everybody I see is edited to remove flaws. I think Make Up is a billion dollar industry due to that desire. Edit to remove basic flawsis done to just about all women you see in magazines.

    There might not be anything wrong with her nose. In this picture, her nostril looks large and in charge due to the angle/pose. That is all I am saying...to help minimize a bad angle, make the nostril small.

    OP, since your tag says it's okay to edit your photos...here is an example of just a small resizing of the nostril.
