I like the composition, her eyes. But the face seems a bit overexposed and details are blown out.

Re: Female Portrait (natural light)

I like the expression and look on her face. You seem to capture an essence of the model: serious but playful.

IMHO you should PP this picture a little to reduce blown highlights on the side of the face. I am also not crazy about how you fill the frame. It seems "tilted" to the left.
Nice picture nevertheless.

Re: Female Portrait (natural light)

Here is a quick edit only spent couple of minutes just with levels, is this any better?

Pretty. Consider ever so slightly Liquifying her jawline cam R to bring it in closer to her lips.
