ONLY suggestion I can make is that you may want to do some minor color correction to make the image a tiny bit "brighter" (I know lots of people think it's a bad thing to do it, but really most photographers do at least a tiny bit of color correction because it is very rare to ever get lighting absolutely perfect, and sometimes even when it is the camera is just a pain and you get what would have been the perfect shot, but it doesn't capture the light quite as you would like - or sometimes it's just a matter of web colors not showing what the real colors are, since web and print and such all display everything slightly differently). Judging by the shadows the lighting was probably brighter than what it looks like on my screen - the web image seems a bit "gray" compared to what it looks like it should be based on the way the rest of the image looks, so probably something with the color profile, which almost always happens when converting from the camera to display on a website.

The composition is wonderful, she is framed beautifully. :)

Hi
first of all thank you so much for taking the time for writing this to me

Let me be the first one to agree with you your absolutely right.. i had allot of problem with this i have tried to make brighter and more colour full and some times it works and some times it dont the web drags the quality down..because my picture that i have saved on the computer is much more colourful and shows the light much better

Thank you for reminding me of this i will try to do better next time

Sincerely
P

If it helps, and you are using a program that lets you choose a color profile, I was always told in my classes that if you are color correcting for display on a website, to choose "sRGB" as it will match the closest, before you start adjusting the picture. :)

yes i use photoshop and i use sRGB but still i have problems but i think its more that my screens is causing it it is not the best screen in the world and some times i do al my adjustments on a laptop which is even worse

Looks like you found a really great model! :) Nice work.

The only thing that would make this better would be if you got an action shot where a drunkard jumped in after betting his buddy he could fight a lion and the ensuing confrontation thereafter. That, my friend, is the ONLY way you could make this photo more interesting! :D So....what I'm trying to say is, you're photo's pretty amazing as it is!
