Not that I could do any better (I'd like to start trying model protariture, haven't yet) - but my first thought was that the background seems too busy/distracting and the blown highlight in the sweater also. As for whether cutting off her feet is an issue in such a composition, I'll leave that to the composition experts. I like the image, I'm just trying to answer honestly as I attempt to develop my own eye for portraiture. I'm more into wildlife and landscapes at the moment, so take all with a grain of salt and the knowledge that it's well-intentioned.

Pretty model -- nice pose. I think you made it hard on yourself by putting her into such a high contrast situation. Also, it would be better not to cut the end of her foot off. Also, I think it needs to be cropped quite a bit -- I'm not sure why you want so much of the shed (or whatever it is) to show. She's the subject -- fill the pic with her. Sorry, I'm not a professional, but I DID sleep in a Holiday Inn last night. :-)

Hi,
Please try the following things:

1.
Get down to eye level with the camera

2.
Try to get her on the ground instead of on a cushion.

3.
Unclutter the background (it will look beter when you are on the eyelevel by the way.

4.
As mentioned before don't cut of the feet.

Have fun with it.

Greetings,
Frank
