There isn't too much to say given the simplicity of this photograph. Portrait is my favourite form of photography given that you can capture someone's life inside a photo. Even better, when you manage to capture a hidden side of the model that you never knew you could. Enough of me blabbering and let's get down to the critique.

There is this one trick in portrait photography saying that you should never cut someone off at a joint. It makes the proportions a bit off. This particular photo makes it feel as if she was cut off at her shoulders. It's harder to tell under the coat she's wearing, though. Try it with your other photographs, compare a model when she/he is cut off at a joint with the original one. It's a bad crop isn't it?

Another thing too, is that although harder to control, the snow in her hair is distracting the focus from her eyes. Given the soft colour scheme of her surroundings, you want her eyes to be the thing that pops out at you and scream personality. But the flakes of snow in her dark hair seem to 'mess up' the perfection of her facial features. Perhaps next time get you model to shake the snow out of her hair or be carful how you pose her. You might want to have her hair neater than it is in the photo if you cannot avoid the snow.

Overall, you've manipulated the soft light around her very well and the blurriness and clarity levels are a nice touch.
