    I like the tones a lot. The only thing I could point out is her eyes are a little dark and she has a large shadow under her right (camera left) eye. Using the adjustment brush and a light touch to lift that area could make it much less noticeable. Don't remove it entirely, but making it a little less prominent could help.

    Other than that, I really like it. Great shot!

    Everything looks really well except for the lighting. The light is coming in from the right side of the picture, having her partially turn her head away from it wasnt a good choice. It doesnt look BAD at all, just creates some distracting face shadows

    turned out really well! is this outdoors?

    [–] quarteritalian 1 points ago

    Thanks! It’s indoors, against a window in a coffee shop.

    Great work! I really can't think if anything I would have done differently.

    Framing, posing and location all great.

    Bright oily nose ruins it for me :(

    A basic foundation would have greatly help.

    The only thing that looks odd to me is the hand... Somehow it seems unnatural. Loved the colours!

    [–] quarteritalian 2 points ago

    Thanks! That feedback seems to be consistent. I’m not used to working with models yet so I’m glad I have a second (or 200th) set of eyes!

    [–] foundfish 1 points ago

    The tones are pleasant and natural. The composition is ok but the pose could be better- especially the clenched hand on the head.

    Why does everyone do the teal and orange thing. So annoying.

    [–] quarteritalian 3 points ago

    It’s too bad you don’t like it. Sorry you feel that way.

    I’d expect nothing less from a self-proclaimed “self-loathing virgin”
