Ya know, emotion is part of the human psyche.

Smiling is not always required.

The photo looks kinda grim for the title you have. Maybe if her face were a little brighter and more definition in her irises. 6

she seems to be reflecting a cruelty she doesn't quite understand. she is almost contemptuous of the flowers that surround her. she is a force of nature. 9

Why so solemn? A smile would have helped this a lot.

very good emotion in this portrait study, skin tone and light work well for an outside shot,and from the spot in the right eye,appears you may have used fill flash.....8
