Tell me what I can do better on in this photo!

A: Do you like the photo? What would you change about it if you could? Etc. Etc. Etc.

B: The one thing I personally don't like about the photo is all the fly away hair... so what would you do to fix that... what CAN you do to fix it? :)

All comments and critiques are appreciated! So, thank you in advance!

Why is it rotated? Great smile and she definitely looks comfortable with you.

haha it was shot from above and I was just experimenting with different styles... trying to move outside my comfort zone I guess! And yes she is pretty comfortable with me! :) She's my girlfriend! haha

PS that rotation distracted from the photo?

I like it, and it could be better. She's pretty and you captured a nice smile. I think the diagonal is too extreme and the highlights on her skin are close to being blown out.

Some careful cloning with a soft brush would fix most of it. Don't try for too much though.

I would try adjusting the exposure down to bring back detail in the highlights. Reducing the exposure might also help hide some of the flyaway hair. Then increase the contrast a bit, and maybe a little increase in saturation too. After that, zoom in and whiten the white part of her eyes a tiny fraction. While you're at it, brighten up the catchlights in her eyes too.

I have to agree with the comments left. The angle is just too extreme, other than that the lighting is nice and the model is very pretty :)

Ditto.. first thing that i would fix is the rotation
