Just got a D50, but the weather is too cold for outdoor photos so I thought I would try my hand at a portrait...my first ever. All criticism and tips welcome. This is my wife by the way.

Great shot!

Beautiful lady!

Could be a littel sharper perhaps.

What settings did you use?

Da Boss rules and she looks great. My only change would be the background. The mottled look doesn't quite fit in. Just a personal preference.

Very Beautiful subject. My thoughts would to have more of her shoulders in the picture...and maybe a different background.
