    right now you're using butterfly lighting which is really bad for girl's complexions, especially if they have bags under their eyes like she does. her facial expression really doesn't do much for me either.

    BUT...the good news is you nailed the exposure which is a tricky thing to do, especially outdoors. good job!

    I don't like the expression on her face or her pose. :\

    Everything else I like!

    Not a fan of her body positioning, she looks uncomfortable to me. Good Exposure though!!

    theres 4 basic lighting patterns for portaits

    Rembrandt
    Split
    Loop
    Paramount (butterfly)

    I wouldn't say what Ted said is entirely correct, if at all. In fact it was one of the most used patterns during early 50's hollywood glamour shots

    here's a little example of what each is and how you achieve it

    God...that face...i'm very sorry if I offend you but thats a very unflattering pose. it looks like she's taking a piss by a tree while yelling "don't take a picture asshole"

    your WB looks all fucked up to me.

    your exposure looks okay.

    The pose is horrible

    The model is sub par
