    Nice portrait. To me it says; relaxed, casual, confident.

    The lighting is kinda flat though. Perhaps if you had turned her slightly away from the window, but still used the natural light as the main light and a white card as a fill.
  4. I am a big fan of horizontal portraits. I also love the framing on this. And her eyes are way cool.

    i really like the shot. its a nice natural expression, and a nicely off-center composition. for me, the eyes really connect with the viewer, and the depth of field is just right, giving enough in focus, but throwing out what isn't necessary.

    the colors, if purposeful, are nice. if not, then you're a little toward cyan i think.

  12. A very nice, casual look. She has terrific eyes and that really comes through in this shot.

    I like it. Nice composition, nice expression, and soft natural light with just enough hint of modeling to not be completely flat (IMHO not every portraits needs strong directional lighting in the Rembrandt style). Nice catchlights too (and pretty eyes). Color balance seems to have a bit too much cyan in it though.

    Framing looks good, but I think it could be a tad sharper (just my personal taste).
