I want to like it but keep asking myself, why is her head tilted back and her eyes looking down? For me, one of the most important aspects of portraiture is being able to develop a story about the subject. Her expression just doesn't make any sense.

I would love to see one of your portraits to learn, sadly your portfolio is empty.

For some reason, I think you're being disingenuous. ;-)

Perhaps she was watching a plane flying overhead then caught a passing ship in her periphery and decided to shift her attention for just a moment.

I think this is an excellent shot The emphasis is on the eyes with the lovely eyelash shadows and it just oozes sexuality
