The lighting is throwing me off here. I kinda get why you did it the way you did, but still to have the sharp shadow where the lantern would be shining light is pulling me out of the shot.

I agree. And the big blurry snowflake on her right arm is distracting.

Im viewing on a cell, the shadow of her nose makes her nose look HUGE. I thought she had a squidward nose. I apologize for being harsh but i want to be helpfully critical for you.

No problem, I see what you mean.
But I probably have to hide that comment since that's my wife...LOL...

Thanks for all the feedback. To be honest I didn't even notice that with the shadow or maybe I overlooked it because it didnt bother me that much. I liked the overall look and feel of the picture.
I shot it 2 or 3 years ago and probably would do some things different today.

This would have looked more natural if you had the off-camera light on the other side. It doesn't make sense to have the light on the opposite side of the lantern. If you move the light to the other side, it would look like the lantern was lighting her face and not an off-camera flash.
