    Hi Brian, I think the image could use a slightly brighter histogram, maybe get a few of the tones just a little closer to white, while at the same time keeping the overall muted, low-contrast vibe, and at least some dark tones in the hair of course. I hope this makes sense?

    The arm (and ear) being cut by the edge of the framing here is just a bit distracting. I’d shoot a slightly wider version and see if that works better, or for this version with such a close-up, I might try changing the angle a bit (maybe a bit more overhead?) so that the emphasis can be more strongly on the whole face, and the edges of the photo are less of something that the viewer’s eye goes to. I hope this feedback on the overall balance of the image is what you were looking for! Let me know if there’s anything else you were curious about…
