She has a great face. I love her strong features and twinkly eyes. My only real critique on this image is it needs more contrast. Stronger darks are needed. Right now she appears to have a blue fog/mist coloring her face. Play with the color variations in photoshop. Maybe upping the yellow a bit will warm the flesh tones.
Sorry the critique is so short. The rules insist on 100 words or more. But to be honest, this is a sweet and personal photo/portrait and doesn't need that much punch it up a bit.
There is an old rule attributed to Arther Rackham, "if it don't work in Black & White, it won't work in color!"
It loses everything if you adjust the contrast. That's how she looked - the light diffused everything. My photography is about capturing what's really there.
I did deliberate over the contrast for a while but it looks absolutely shite if you adjust everything. The muted tones are far more appropriate for the subject I feel
