    Looks pretty good to me! Her nose is made to not look big, her eyes are emphasized (her best feature I think), you caught a good look, no flash glare but nice catchlight in the eye, really like the use of natural highlighting on the subject's left side and shadow to the right (while not blown out), very sharp (always helps).

    If I had to comment and pick it apart, here's what I'd say:
    - The puff of hair sticking up the back is a little distracting.
    - The colors look a bit too pumped up for my taste (tree, background, eyes) and the skin tone looks just a little off somehow. A color balancing shot could have gotten all these exactly right.
    - I don't like the lens's bokeh, find it distracting. Looks a lot like the 24-105L bokeh (that I sorely dislike). A nice buttery portriat lens like the 85 f1.8 or one of the L primes should do better.
    - If you want to stick with the pumped up colors, maybe it would gel with a portriat softening action.

    How's that?

    The 85 f1.8 is on my wish list...

    This is a picture of my cousin's girlfriend. It's taken with my SD700, no PP. I know it's nowhere near the calibur of most of the pictures on this topic, but I do like her pose and facial expression. Seemed like one of the few "natural" people photos that I had. The colors are a little over exposed because I had it on the "Vivid" color setting.
