I'm new to this. Please help me gett better.

I'm not in the slightest a professional photographer, especially when it comes to portraits but here's my personal and subjective opionion.

For me the jacket is the biggest issue. It's a sporty piece of clothing yet she doesn't seem to be doing any sports at the moment, mainly because her hair is not tied. Choosing more of a classic top for her would make a big improvement.

You could use some lighting from the bottom left to show more of her neck which appears to be really nice.

The crop is too tight for me; her hair is nice and cropping parts of it out doesn't serve any purpose.The background should stay blurry but it could perhaps contain something slightly distinguishable.

Thanks, I like you're comments. Good tips.

About the crop, I made it tighter to shut out more of the background. You can se a better crop at my profil. Thanks

Keep experimenting and looking through other contest entries for inspiration. Watch video tutorials on portrait lighting and post processing.

Thanks for you're tips. I will keep trying :)
