I think this shto is technically sounds. Nice exposure and white balancing. Im assuming you used pp to do skin corrections etc and that seems to have come out ell also.

Umm shot does have this hint of a candid appeal to it.

A straight back always helps with seated people pics. Makes ppls bodies look longer and sleaker which usually leads to a more attractive shot. And bringing a persons shoulders down to reveal more of a persons neck. Again lengthens the person over the frame. Loose and relaxed fingers and hands make suttle differences. Make up is also well done

all in all good work

Not sure about cutting off her feet? Maybe would have left those in the frame. But all in all a great analysis by Ken.

Pretty girl too...

Drop the top frame a little bit. Not too much but some. AndI do believe there is a wee bit too much space on the right side of her head to the frame. The only way you could have done that would have been to move the slant of the lower portion of her body to the viewers left somehow. However, doing thiswill upset whatyou already have and that may be asking too much. That said, if the contest judges are critical then they may ''call you'' on the slightly out of balance right/top of the picture. Had the young lady been looking to her left/ viewerright, then that space is acceptable.

Cropping at the feet doesn't take anything from the picture in my opinion. The viewer has control of that; they fill inthat detail. It wasn't cropped at the ankle so it isn't an issue. Respecftfully of course. :-)
