Hey there from the Critique Club

Camera Work/Technical: Well, after 3 and a half years of waiting, this is a pretty nice entry. It looks like your focal point is nicely placed, and I like your depth of field use. i can see just enough detail in the background ot know what I am looking at, yet the blurring prevents it from competing with the subject for my eye's attention.

Lighting: I do like the start that you had with your lighting here. However, I thin that you could have added just a bit more fill light to her right side as well as closed that aperture just a bit to keep the hot spot off of her hair. The light falls off just a little too much leaving her right hand a bit too dark for my taste.

Composition/Content: I really like how this image has been composed. The crop keeps enough background, yet really serves to accentuate the subject.

My Opinion: I like it, but I'd like some slight lighting changes. Even still, I feel that 5.4 was a little low for this one.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide a critique on your entry,

Beautiful portrait.
If i was to be really critical I would say the hair is a little blown out.
Love the composition. I would have croped a little lower so as not to crop at the knee.
