The evening sun lights this photo. My daughter and I were exploring several old country roads near my hometown, when she spotted this tree swing. You just can't beat a good tree swing. And she's still asks ol' dad yo swing her. Too Cool. It was about 40 degrees at the time of this photo. That's why her hands are inside the sleeves of her shirt.

Good shot, I like the expression and the pose, but I think there may be a bit too much soft focus here and the face would really benefit from some fill light.

Nice! Good soft focus.
You cut off her legs and the swing. I think this would do better with swing and legs in the composition.

Too much background. Just her face and arms would have drawn attention to her face.

Good portrait but the girl’s face seems a little silhouetted with the sun behind her. Maybe you could have taken this facing the other way or used fill in flash?
