    The logo is very distracting. My only beef is the speculars in her sunglasses and too much DOF. I see no need for having the background in focus and it makes the photo too busy.

    yeah...actually i don't mind the speculars in the glasses, but they're an easy fix in post anyway. IMO there is too much space on the right of the frame. like..if you cropped it to 4x3 it would almost have just the right amount of space to her right. you did a good job on the exposure...comp is just a LITTLE off and i'd also like to see less dof. all in all a decent frme though. we're all just super picky and perfect of course. i also agree that the logo needs to go/be toned down

    thanks, and thanks to everyone for the critique, really opens your eyes to see things you didnt even notice on your own.
    lighting wise i used a sb-24 and shoot thru umbrella. you can actually see the umbrella on teh upper left corner. haha. sun added a nice rimlight.

    something about the sun highlighting her just doesnt look right to me. the front light looks nice though. Maybe because she is too defined from the sun I dunno.

    The cars in the backround are distracting to me, and the highlights on the sunglasses bug me...I like the overall colour and tone of the picture, though. =)

    Your bro should email you nudes, and you should post. :)

    Great shot though. I like. I need to pick up one of those umbrellas.

    technically it's fine, but i agree that all the objects in the background are killing the power and focus of the subject.
