Very very very very nice! There's a lot to like here, the lighting, the expression, the overall energy. If there's one thing I would play with a little, it's the shadow to each side of her cheeks. I like the overall effect, drawing the eye to her face, especially her eyes.

But...and I'm nitpicking here...the shadow looks a touch too strong on my monitor. So every time my eye wants to move to or from her face to other parts of the photograph, it reaches the dark shadow and gets stuck there momentarily before moving onward. Bring those shadows up just a touch, perhaps revealing some of her neckline or strands of hair, and my eye might read that area quicker and move on.

I hope this makes some sense.

Also, Boracay is beautiful. If you have time, visit Bohol - that's where my mom's family's from - and it's turning into a hot new tourist destination. Baclayon Church is the oldest Catholic Church in Asia, the Chocolate Hills are pretty, there's a tarsier monkey preserve, among other things. Nearby Panglao Island has some beautiful resort complexes, stunning beaches and fantastic diving. And Pamilacan Island - once a quiet fishing island - now hosts a beautiful resort.

Farther north, on Luzon, there's Mayon Volcano (a perfect cone), Tagaytay (a dormant volcano whose crater is now a lake), Banaue Rice Terraces, Sagada crypts, Baguio, etc...
