    Right now the color on her seems a bit off, did you use a gel?

    I would have darkened down your ambient exposure to make this image more dramatic.

      Hmmm I guess I could try and do that on my next try given that you consider this less dramatic. Thanks!

    This is competing with your subject for attention, I would try and frame it out.

    I would also work on preventing this much spill.

    Using a GMaster 2.8 at 4 for this portrait is completely killing the shot. If you have a 2.8 and trying to overpower the sun (hopefully you have an HSS flash) shoot at 2.8 The extra stuff in the shot is just taking away from your photo instead of enhancing it.

      Would you consider Blurring out the background too much Acceptable in such a shot? I was coming from the fact that I want to preserve some of that detail at the back. Not sure, maybe I haven’t played around much with my G Master or maybe its just me. Anything in Mind in terms of DOF vs Get the  MAX APERTURE?

    The problem with preserving the detail in the background here is that its not lit the same as your subject with the flash. Trying to create bokeh in photoshop is never a good idea either.

    Her face to me seems a little out of focus. Have you tried setting up your camera to recognize her face so it can always be in focus? Gary Fong has a great video on YouTube for that on Sony.  Great pic BTW!
