Portrait of my niece

Overall, it is a nice portrait. The lighting is subtle and understated, the greyscale conversion is done well. Eyes are sharp and in focus.

However, I would say that the hair could use a separation light, the placement of her head is slightly off composition-wise, and as a personal thing, when I do full frontal headshots, I prefer to square the face to the camera.

I am not going to give you complements..

Think about the meaning of a [portraiture] composition.. There is no composition in your shot at all.
