Terrific composition and lighting. My one misgiving is that the center of focus seems to be the hair at her shoulder instead of her face. FWIW

Thanks for the comment! You're right - while the eye is still in the focal plane it's at the back of it. Should have switched focus points to focus on eye.

Well done John.
Her pose represents the typical teenager of today. I believe the phone is now part of their anatomy.

And our parents use to say we spent too much time on the only one telephone in the house.

Ha..that's my 17 year old right there!!! Love it. Perfect lighting on an excellent composition. I like how the light from the device is illuminating her face.

In terms of CC, a little bit of NR on the upper left background would do it for me.

Great shot, my seventeen year old son is the same! I asked him today if he could do without his phone for a week.......you can guess his answer and the look he gave me.
