    Thanks for the comments. My model is very special.. Kind, compassionate and loving. Could be that I am prejudiced.

    Good lighting on the head and face . I would have preferred a more neutral or blurred background. Beautiful example of the generation.

    spot on with the original theme
the slight vignette makes the frame and the blue ribbon enforces the young age of the subject.
i presume a family member and the eyes have nice catch lights

    This is a lovely portrait of a beautiful young lady. The pose is natural, and the lighting forms a wonderful halo around her head. I'm not sure the vignette adds much - the portrait is beautiful on its own.

    Beautiful, if that is what you were going for (I am sure it is) then you achieved that. I assume you added a vignette in grey? Not sure what software you used, but I would have preferred a black vignette but with lots of opacity. The problem with a greyish one, it changes the colour unnaturally... E.g. the pink shirt. Pity about the very strong highlight on her face... I still like it though...in my TT

    Nice portrait. might prefer a little less harsh light from her upper left and some warm fill from her right.

    Wow! Everything about this is right. Very attractive model, great pose and expression, excellent lighting. The vignette is perfect and adds a little softness which is nice. The long hair on the right helps frame her face perfectly. Super shot - Kudos to your model.

    DK Eyes sharpened, nothing else on face changed.

    I like the lighting, the pose, the sweetness. While not listed in PP, it looks over-sharpened (really the eyes) and is the skin softened? If not technical, then the face is just too perfect!!

    My own view is a good vignette is one you don't notice. This one screams at me and ruins a very nice shot - and it is a very well done portrait otherwise though I would have blurred the background. I'd like to see the original in outtakes without the vignette.

... very nice portrait of a beautiful girl... love the look in her eye... I might have dodged the bright area by her left eye...vignette a bit strong for me but still a photo that grabbed me right away.
