And that is not the worst you can do, goomer!

I think its a great portrait with a good expression. The lighting is superb,maybe just a bit on the light and cool side.

Good eye-contact and DOF just right. If anything, you could have left some more air under her chin and not to have cut off the top. Maybe a portrait-format would be more suitable?

Good shot!

For me at least Goomer-

It has a nice feel to it. We too were cooped up with mixed rain and snow all day. Here is the photo that I took of my husband.

Letís tweak!
Software: IrfanView (thanks simple!).

. Sharpening the eyes (different for right and left, cause the eyes are never the same) which are the most important issue in a portrait, I guess.
. Sharpening the lips, cause your wife is a beautiful woman -that you surely donít deserve, like I donít deserve mine- and the lips are important in a womanís portrait. Ask her.
. Playing around with color corrections. Going just a little to the dark.

Respectfully yours.
