Things you got right IMO.

Pose isn't bad
Whites are not blown on the dress
Skin tones look good

Things you could improve upon....
Expression... not so much your fault.... but... if you hold your hand up to the screen and cover her mouth.... looking at her eyes... no smile.
Head placement.... moving her over 1 step to her left would have placed the head in a clean spot. The pillar/water coming down on top of her is distracting.
Objects in the background... person and looks like a trashcan... would remove them in post. Or, at least wait a second until the person is out of the scene.
Where the grass and stone meet... I would clone that in with stone as well. The more you can remove distracting elements from the scene... this puts more attention on your subject.

If the background elements were not really important to the image... I would have shot wide open to blur everything out in a few shots just to eliminate the distractions.


All in all...
Not bad for being new to this.... keep practicing... keep an eye open on how you want to build your shot... from the pose to the items all around you.

Hope this helps.
Hatch

I would have moved to her left for two things....

1 - I would want to block that person out that was in the far back over her shoulder....

2 - I would want to have her not quite so centered......

just my 2 cents

Not sure what the white edge on her hair is. I would like more seperation of the background and the subject. Either less DOF or different lighting for each. The lighting would be my first choice but would require off camera flash and maybe a different time of day to take advbantage of lower light on the background.

Thank you guys. I removed the sign and cloned the grass (great idea) and ordered the print. I also recropped to bring her off center, nice touch.

Thanks again everyone.
