Hello guys,
This is a 100% crop of a larger photograph of which I thought distracted the main subject.

Please flame on.

very good close-up, in-your-face kind of potrait. perhaps a bit of muted face tone will be nicer.

For a 100% crop, this looks super sharp. So either nice PP, or that lens is damn sharp.

I think the lighting looks nice on her face although there are a few hot spots. It is framed a bit too tightly for me, personally. The biggest thing I noticed was the lack of catch light in her eyes, which kind of bothered me a bit.

Overall not a bad capture, but depending on what you're going for you can make some great improvements in PP.

I did some PP but only minor sharpening. I really like how this lens performs, though it should be noted that this shot was taken in broad daylight.

the tone now looks too warm to me, I think I'll try to re frame it and maybe b&w.

thanks for your comments

Pablom, if you're after C&C, then consider posting in the Photo Critique section next time.
As for this photo, I'm not a fan.
It's sharp and reasonably well exposed (perhaps a little overexposed in the original), but it doesn't portray the woman's beauty or much of a story all that well.

The pose is awkward, producing not the most flattering of skin folding in her neck, and the downward gaze is disconcerting for the viewer. #2 is an improvement on the composition, but not in the overall result.

Thanks Ash, you're probably right about posting in the wrong section, I really just wanted some critique.

I appreciate your comments
