Really nice.
The angle, her expression, her posture, a hint of bare shoulder - I like it all.

I know nothing about portraiture, but isn't the light on the left side of her face a bit harsh? Presumably, that's the look you wanted?

Thank you Tim.
This capture was semi-staged. My girlfriend does not have patience unfortunately
About the light - I do no know. The light is nicely diffused (late afternoon low sun over the river at her left side), no disturbing contrasty shadows and I do not even think it is overexposed. Matter of taste I guess

Well posed.
It's a good result.
I'm sure she'll like it too.

Oh, just ignore me! I'm not an expert, I simply know what I like.

Anyway, unwilling girlfriend or not, it's a compelling portrait. Thanks for sharing with us.
