A few of us got together the other evening and took some shots at a local spot downtown.

This shot was taken in natural light, no flash, sun setting, minimal editing...

Some Thoughts.

1. Image looks a bit soft for my eyes.
2. Pose is very "static" and flat. Consider giving her a bit more structure to add some interest and allow her to engage the camera a bit more. Use the doorway, hand rail to bring some structure to the shot.
3. The crop is awkward here cut off at the crotch and then a weird hand crop also. For my money crop wider or tighter here.

The shot has a lot of potential and the model looks like she would be pretty good to work worth.

Thanks... she was actually posing for another photog, and I was taking more "candid" shots. I'll definitely agree on the crop
