1.Great focus on the face,maybe close down the aperture to get the hands in as well

2.Cant make my mind up on whether the dark top adds or subtracts

Good action photo!! :)

But you have halos around the trees – this is a fault, but I would have to leave this the pros to tell you more. Good luck with this site and the forum – both are very helpful

Nice shot of her but the background is entirely too cluttered and distracting. Agree with Amy on this and with Tobie’s comment about cropping vertically.

Looks like the shot wasn’t posed – which I think is good. Perhaps “blur” out some of the background (side-ground) noise a bit.
