Not bad, but I want to say that the face is just a little bit too soft.

My criticism isn't the softness, just that the lack of contrast on her face (overblown) makes it appear as if she has no nose ;x

this is shot at 135mm f2.8 from da 50-135
we know that at 135mm f2.8..this lens is a bit soft....

I did use a reflector..and I used the silver one.....seems people are right..do not use silver one in sunny day...too strong

It's not that - focus tapped on the sleeve, seems to be pretty crispy in the sleeve area (the knit sleeve area)...

I personally don't think the lighting is too strong as there still appears to be a little detail in the brightly lit areas - maybe as JinDesu mentioned, fiddle with the contrast a little and see how it turns out.

ye I see.the sleeve is sharp...
I like this one is because the emotion is very natural..
actually I did not know what happen..someone was talking to her..then all the sudden she smile...so I capture it immediately....
this pic can not be retake...that why I personal like this photo
