Derek, somehow I like this pic very much. It has a yellow hint, but that is what I like in this one (besides composition, which is good too!). It's like an older film photo or something like that...

Nice portrait.
I like the yellow hue - creates a warm atmosphere.
What I don't like is her dead centre location in the frame.
Pushed to a third of the way to the left, there would be a more appealing composition and more of the complementary scenery to the right to make it a more compelling portrait.
Thanks for sharing this.

Ash, I thought about the composition too, with the girl in the centre of the pic. Don't you think the tracks are giving ballance in this one? She doesn't bother me being there....:ugh:

Thank you for the compliment. I wanted the picture to look like old film when I took it, so I'm glad it worked on someone.

Thank you. I'm not great with composition and after I get home I often find I should have slowed things down a bit and think things through before pushing the shutter release. I agree with your critique.

Here's another with the subject more to the left (not 1/3 though) unfiltered:

Yeah Rense, I don't find the framing all too disturbing - the tracks do lend to a stable composition - but to me (being a little more traditional) I'd find her shoved to the left a little (keeping the tracks still a central feature of the image) a more dynamic look.

This may require a wider angle lens and being up closer and personal with the model. Remember this is my <2c worth!

This shot is good also - here, her shoes are cut off whilst there being some extra space above her head. Stepping in a little closer and framing her completely may improve this one also.

Well done and keep at it.
