Quite lovely portrait indeed.Overall it's very nice, the film grain you've added really fits in,the post process, the background and angle are also perfect choices.Also the shadows look really balancedTwo things really got my eye though,light coming from right side(left side of the model) is kind of hard for this kind of emotive portrait and it creates some unnecessary sharpness, you can see it better on the hair, you might want to use a softer light next time when you're shooting an awesome portrait like this. Another thing is focal length,of course it'd be foolish if i have told you not to shoot with a wide angle lens, you might not have enough space to get the same background with a zoom lens, yet you'll be able to avoid lens distortion.Hope i've been helpful any at all <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" />

I think the crit is thoughtful and fair, and in general, would agree with the comment about the focal length.
In this case, though, for me there is a perspective created by using a wider angle that is very effective. Avoiding the 'big nose shot' is critical, but the high angle makes sure of that. Enlarging the hair and the forehead a little give this portrait part of its classic style. I guess for me, its one of the cases of successfully breaking the rules!

This is one of the most beautiful portrait I've seen lately.
The model's simplicity, grace, elegance make this portrait a fashion portrait with a tent of vintage. Her posture is very lady-like, and the hair, make-up, clothes, they've all been taken care of, emphasizing the main idea: feminity. The photo filter is just right, and this vintage look is absolutely gorgeous. Maybe the background isn't the most appropiate it could be, but in rest everything is in its right place. The model plays a very important role in this picture, as well as the photographer, who took what's best out of the model.
