Beautiful young girl and her eyes stand out. I wish you had not cut off the head so much.

I bet, she would have looked more beautiful with full head shown and would have been a much better composition.

Anyway's a good, happy and sharp capture.

There is no rule of thumb for composition that a full head must be shown to make a shot good though some may certainly prefer that. It's common practice in headshots to clip the top of the head.

Look through Peter Hurley's portfolio of actress headshots and you'll see only one single image in which the entire top of the head is showing.

I typically cut off the top of the head for headshots though I do usually include the hairline. This also will often naturally cause the eyes to line up with the top line if you're using the rule of thirds.
