Overall good photo but I feel that her face is a bit dark on the right hand side. She's got a nice natural laughing smile.
Her arms seems a bit distracting though the way she holds it out in front of her body.

Bonjour Karl,
Cette photo est rafraichissante, quel beau sourir sans oublier ses yeux qui en font autant.
J'aime sa coiffure et son choix de robe...finalement j'aime tout.
Merci de partager.

Hi Karl and welcome to TL. Your wife is a lovely woman and you have captured a great expression from her. You have detail in the right side so it seems you may have accomplished your intentions. There are no hot spots on the left which is great. It may be my monitor at work but it seems the image, as a whole, may be slightly lacking in contrast. Not knowing how you process your images makes it a little difficult but I am sure that whatever program you are using you should be able to make some minor contrast adjustments to make the subject pop out. In Photoshop I prefer creating a new layer, changing the blending mode to soft light, then using curves to gently make contrast adjustments. It is much better than the contrast control. Nice work and keep them coming! B

Hello Karl,
You want comments? This is a REALLY good first portrait! You caught her in her element, this pictures says a lot about her personality, and doing it in black and white is a great idea.
Thankyou for sharing!
