Wow, great light. I also like your PP that makes her skin still look natural.

Very intense! one situation where deep shadows and female portrait go well together.

You made the perfect choice, I think! It looks great. I like women that look real, not the ones that look like chinese dolls

Thanks a lot, I try this style as I'm inspired by Michael Woloszynowicz on 500px, his shots are heavily retouched but keep the real look with rough skin !

Amazing picture! BUT. I see her powder - big no-no.
She would look better without makeup, imo.

I missed some spot in PP next time I'll try to shoot 100% natural, some girls are just not confident without make-up

I would suggest skin cleanser first, then brown mascara, delicate eye shadows, and transparent lip gloss. She is natural beauty.

+1 for that!

Also - I know this is not a critique thread, but in contrary to some , I personally think that this beautiful woman hasn't been given the justice to because your lighting is too harsh and the image is overly too sharp- when we look at people with our own eyes we don't see individual pores and every single blemish of their make-up. Portraits are meant to emphasize what's already there and translate the person's aura to the viewer. In this case I BET that she in real life looks delicate and fragile - yet I don't see this in your photo, It is like getting a soft baby and trying to picture it as a weather-beaten case-hardened sunburnt globetrotter!

That is a very beautiful, delicate woman , that could do with light make-up and would be pictured much better with softer light and less harsh treatment during post processing.

Yes. Not only that, redheads beauties usually have delicate skin, which is thin and tends to dry, but it's glowing like porcelain (kind of envy here ) With red hair and porcelain glowing, omg, I love redheads! When you look at her left side, you see that white porcelain glowing just a bit, there is too much to show! And her amazing hair as well.
It's not a critique, but "show us more, lucky redcat"
