The model is my beautiful sister and the location is our equally stunning family farm. I am really struggling to take photos that are creative interpretations of the challenge, so any critique on concepts would be greatly appreciated. In addition I am always looking to improve my editing, composition, and cropping... thank you for any advice!

Beautiful portrait, a bit on the light side, but its not overblown and it looks very flawless.
I like the way the pins in her hair stand out, making her (and this image) look very classic and beautiful.
The DOF really works for you here also, as the bokeh makes her face and expression stand out a lot.

Split profile, too much of back (right) eye showing... should only see the eyelash, body (shoulders) is awkward looking. Bobby pins in hair are distracting.

"Insight"? "an instance of apprehending the true nature of a thing, especially through intuitive understanding"
Nice pic, but wouldn't insight be a non-five sense?

Classic profile and nice tones.
If it was mine, I'd probably ask the model to conceal some of those hairpins,
or maybe just crop the pic a different way.

But it's not mine, it's yours and this is a good one.

Like the soft focus. Not sure about this photo for this challenge.
