If you placed the subject a bit more out of center, cropped a bit of the bottom of the image out and perhaps sharpened it a little less, it would do wonders I think!

Otherwise, very nice - and also, a black and white version maybe?

i'd like to say hello to poor bokeh(door frame in focus), burns on hair, and bad composition. You have a good model, all you need now is good place, light and some skills with you can pic up reading some Gordon's txt. And like guys said B&W somehow, sometimes it works well with older people :)

Hm..I'll have to disagree about the compostition part of magic's reply, it would be perfect if only you met the other two, background and b/w. Although the b/w is a personal taste thing, it would go perfect with this shot...all in all, I think the composition is nice!
Maybe you could even blur the shot in PS? Dunno..

Many thanks for all your comments.

I've had another go - cropped and made B/W. Not sure what is meant by 'more burn', though !

I disagree with the out of centre remark, the rule of thirds does not apply when you have such a strong image.....

Centre image crop and and turn to monochrome = PERFECT!

I like this one alot better with the B&W, cropped...and the closeness denotes an intimacy...a closer look at this girl who has a little stand-offish look to her...so, to my eye, for whatever reason, I like the way she is placed in this B&W study. I hope that you will take this photo and do what Mitchell says, with the burn tutorial..and then re-post. Would be fun to see how it turns out...

great subject, and a really nice capture, too

[$0.02]Personally I think that if you want to go the monochrome way Sepia would be the preferred choice. It softens the rather harsh contrast and gives it a warmer tone.[/$0.02]
