A new Model for Pentax
Lens: 17-50 sigma OS Camera: K5 Photo Location: Fremantle , Western Australia ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/1000s Aperture: F2.8 

My Niece, with her new Pentax K7...

PP include..cloning out of unwanted tree and rubbish bin in the background , levels boost cropping and adding some Vignette

focus on the face could have been better...but tell me what you think...do you feel that would make a good 8x10 offered to a client ?

original is below

Stunning photo. It's very good.

I think it would make a great 8x10 seeing as how I now want to visit Australia providing all the women there look like that.

Nice shot of a lovely young lady! You can tell her we have Pizza and Hot Wings on Tuesdays here and she is more than welcome! It is a long trip but would be worth it....for me! LOL!
Best Regards & I hope she enjoys the new camera.

We have fun here!

I was going to suggest the tighter crop which removes the clutter below the beltline.

Still I would give it a couple clicks of rotation counterclockwise as she seems to be tilting backward.

+1 on tighter crop.
Model and pose is good - lighting a little too harsh but not unappealing.
Would have been even better if the Petnax logo on the camera strap showed on her left side.

Strangely I like both the final, much tighter crop and the original full-length.

You may consider working up a full-length version as well.

When the subject is so pretty, it is very difficult not to like a picture, specially if it is posed naturally.

I like the result from some sharpening that someone has posted.

cheers,

Abhi

I like the one with the sharpening filter the most. Awesome photo, pose, beatiful girl, but maybe taking the highlights down just a little with curves could soften up that light. Then again it looks great as is!

The sharpening has helped make your otherwise nice pics even better.
