I really like this photo because she has trust for the camera. But the truth is, that I just turned the camera and took the photo before thinking too much about the composition. It works I think, but what do you think?

If I had taken more time, should I have included more of her shoulders and upper body?
Should I in this situation crop her closer?

I would use a reflector or bounce a flash off the wall to illuminate her eyes, the soul of any portrait of this type is in her eyes, can't see 'em here. Just my take.

I think this is actually a nice photo. It looks like there is little or no flash and the camera has not set the correct white balance...however a little playing in PS CS and you can easily correct this. Also the edge of the window intersected her face, so I moved it a little (Excuse the roughness, I hurried!), also I cropped the pic to exclude your reflection in the window, and lastly, I lightened the eyes a tad!

When photographing people, always check to see what is lurking in the background and adjust accordingly. Also if you tell the model you´re doing this it can take some of thepressure from her thinking you are "Examining" her face through the camera! :-)

Hope you dont mind me "Tinkering"....

Anyway, nice pic and pretty model!
