Shot this pic of my Gf. I feel like its a very strong photo, could've been better composed as in the third rule but oh well,Probably a crop would sort it out

Please feel free to comment

It's a nice photo and you definitely have an attractive subject for future shoots. I'm not sure what camera you are using, but if you want to do more portraits consider something other than the on-camera flash next time. Learning how to light your subject is the first step in being a good portrait photographer. All you need is one light off the camera/lens axis to start. :-)

Indeed a lovely subject. I would recommend using a background that doesn't distract from your subject...like that curtain on the left. The eye tends to the lightest parts of a photograph, and so the window fights for attention here. The eye whitening work could use a little something, as its obvious and her left eye is a little mishapen from the process. Lastly I would echo 24 peter's comments about flash. Even with desk lamps some of the members here have been able to produce stunning results. Keep up the great work.

Is it my monitor or does this have a little too much redish tint?

I have been trying to get used to my new monitor.

yes this is a very strong shot

i like it very much. the only distraction taht really catches my eye is the pp on the eye whitening, well thats how it appears. i think maybe using an adjustment layer ontop and maybe backing up the opacity to around 75% will give you a much more realistic finished shot

nice
