Skin tones are very nice. Crop just a touch more off of the top and your composition would be enhanced. Too bad about the fountain ;)

Nice portrait, the water spout behind her is a bit of a distraction.

I like the portrait but find the background distracting.

The lighting on your subject is wonderful, so is your composition. But the eyes appear too softly focused.

you have what seems like an unintentionally funny effect, with those pipes in the background spitting water on your subject.

This meets ROT's just fine, and she's a lovely gal. Face is a bit soft. Biggest trouble I see for you with this image is the water fountains in the back - quite distracting unfortunately. Bet of luck in the challenge.

Why is there a pipe pouring water down her neck? :P

This is a very nice shot but I think the water in the background is a bit distracting. 6

Water running down her neck is a major distraction.

Pretty face on a sweet model. It's good that you used fill lighting, a reflector (I'll guess) and I'm quite sure she's holding the reflector, too. The lighting on the chin & the nose are beginning to be too bright. IMHO you would have been better served to have the reflector higher than the face & slightly to the right of the camera. As it is...low-angle fill could cause the "dracula effect" (ala Bela Lugosi) if it was much stronger. Just a tip from someone who always seems to learn the "hard way."

model looks good, the water pouring onto her shoulder is slightly distracting

A lovely portrait. The windows in the background are slightly distracting, but only slightly (because you force my attention directly on her left eye!).

Its a nice photo with soft focus and light, but I cant get around the fact that the background fountains look like they are pouring water down the back of her shirt.

I don't mind a softer focus on portraits but here everything seems just enough out of focus to irritate the eye. If even the eye on the right were nice and crisp it would give the eye something to move to in the picture.

where is the thirds?

Nice shot. The water fountain is a bit distracting for me though. She's such a pretty model, I wish the focus was all on her...but the streams of water are taking my eye away.

I have a Sarah! OK...the image is lovely and her pose is nice and relaxed...she is absolutely stunning and you have captured her beauty well...on the negative, perhaps a little out of focus and the water in the bg looks like it's pouring into her, so is a bit distracting. A wder aperture would have thrown the bg out of focus and helped us really concentrate on Sarah...sharper focus around her eyes and you have a ribbon winner of the future...lovely image in any case 8
