CC on Portrait Please
I don't have much experience in portraits at this time, but can give my 1st impression. I like the 1st photo but could have more lighting on the back ground to show her beautiful red hair. The hair seems to fade into the background, was that your intention?
I don't like the B&W at all, sorry.
Do you have other photos that show more of the upper body, with different facial expressions? She doesn't look comfortable imo.
