any Ideas for improvement welcome

I like this portrait. I think the depth of field really works well. The viewer gets the feeling that the woman is content, lost in thought, and located somewhere rurally. Perhaps you took it in town - but you would never know.

Some might think the highlights are blown a little in her hair - on the bangs hanging down - but I like the effect. It adds the necessary warmth to the photo to enhance the dreamy expression on her face. Was this a cool day?

The blue ponytail holder adds a nice splash of color.

The only thing I would have done differently - is have the model take her earing off. I like her natural beauty.

Good shot.
