Hi guys,
what do you think about it?

For your opinion the landscape must be definite or blurred?

And the lights on the girl are good?

I like it ....a lot! Rich color, crisp and clear, perfect pose......a mighty fine shot. Yes, I would blur the background...not too much and not too little, keeping the scene setting is important, but directing the focus directly to the girl is too. Others may differ...that's my 2 cents!
Great shot! Processing too!

BTW-Otis loved it too, and said he love to see girls sit like that, "spread out". Filthy minded little rodent!

I like the feel of the picture. Since you want some feedback i will be extremely picky as a favour to you lol.

I like the amount your background is blurred.

The light seems good. What did you use for a light modifier? You could try a larger softbox to soften the light a tad. Just looking at her nose...

You might try to reduce the shadows on her face from her hair. One little shadow by her mouth could be fixed by having that little tuft of hair pulled back.

The shadow over her left eye - maybe try a mild fill flash straight on pointed at her face, or pull her hair back just a tad on the left. Something to play with.

Also the post to the left is a bit distracting to me...

Nice colours and contrast.

Beautiful girl, her skin looks very smooth.

the image quality after uploaded here is bad do you have a link to your original file ?
The light is ok, if it was a flash I might power it down to match the environment lighting. I'd agree with Rupert, the background would be blur, f/4 or f/5.6 may be good, even f/2.8 (at 31mm f2.8 is fine ^^). The model is beautiful but her right hand pose of the model is a little bit off
Am I critic too much =))
