Taken on a sunny day, with the light at the model's back. Face was lit with a simple silver reflector.

Adjusted levels and saturation slightly in Photoshop. Wish her hair had been smoother, but I suppose I can fix that later with cloning. Otherwise I'm very happy with this image!

It would look nicer at a later sunset or earlier sunrise, whichever, and it would do some good to wet down the hair as to prevent it from being ringed by the wind. Other than that, its a nice photo.

Nice shot but background detracts. Your eye follows cracks behind her and to building and car

You've captured really nice light here. Believe it or not, this image would look better if the model were wearing a black dress and heels. It would give the photo more of a fashion/edgy feel. Still, nice work! :D

Great model, but the background is too busy! Great highlights on the hair!
Nice posing by a natural, just help her slightly with everything that's not her. :)

This has the young fashion catalog mood. I like it.

Good pose and lighting. I think it would have had even more impact with less depth of field, to bring out the subject.

Potential galore, To bad about the background.

great subject, great light - her hair catches the light beautifully. I find the background distracting. You could shoot somewher else, or use a narrower depth of focus.

A more photogenic location would have helped this a lot.

The wires near her head are distracting, but good use of backlight on her hair while keeping her face well-lit.

I would try to have a less distracting background. Nice pose of the model though.
