Wonderful modelling of the face, and with the writing on the newspaper she looks like she is in a postage stamp!

Wow! She's come out so beautiful. I love the light and her skin tones, the strong character you show, the way you handled her hair and eyelashes. Her eyelashes are very effective details. Gorgeous highlights. Beautiful skin tone and this sense of blazing light so clear and strong. Love the contrast with her white shirt.
