First of all I must say I have very little experience shooting portraits and working with models and props. I write this solely as a viewer and a admired of others work. So let me begin.
I like how most of the things work very well on this shot. The colors are good and the composition + the focus. Technically they are very important to bring up an good shot. And the other is the lights. Lights works good in most place of this shot as well. However I would like to see more lights and contrasts on the models face. Maybe surrounding the eyes which will bring more life to the whole scene and brings out the models beauty and more detail in the makeup as well. Other than that I don’t see any adjustment is required to the lights.

Furthermore I like the way you have used the props,jewellery and the background to create this scene. She looks like a lonely princess in her huge garden with a broken heart. I don’t know if that’s the message you try to convey. If not ooopps sorry :giggle:

Good work over all. Keep it up.

Very beautiful-fairytale themed shot in every way, I love the makeup the pose the angle all look great.

Yet I feel that more shading & lighting could be used on the face to bring out the beauty of it & to make the features stand out even more, I see there's a lot of sun behind the model so a simple turn-around very simple that some of the sun beam would move upon her shoulder & to her face :)

also I feel that the look of the eyes is a little misplaced so an up kind of look or down to the downer right corner would be more expressive.

Beautiful photo, very atmospheric & very well done ^^

I love her MUA! I would have gone with pink blush as the peachy-bronze makes her cheeks look a bit ruddy but I still like it.

She has stunning eyes.

Beautiful shot! Love the colors as well. Her make-up is wonderful too! Only thing I think I don't like is that the leaf ends in her eye. o.O lol.
