Technically I believe this is a deceptively 'simple' shot, in so far as the focal length has been minutely judged to give maximum sharpness to the figure, in contrast to the subtle way the background has been muted out.

Compositionally, it has strengths too, without appearing too forced nor static, I'd prefer a little more linear perspective, but that's merely me being picky, and the colours are vibrant enough to offset each other without being overly jarring.....It is quite interesting to see Ksu's clothed silhouette thrown into relief against the paler tones of the forest.

Overall, a very accomplished photograph :)
What do you think?

Looks beautiful. But maybe if she were wearing white it would define her better within the dark woods.

This cerrtainly has some 'zing' to it, Julia! :) 

Subtle composition, and muted background all add to the impact! ;)

Great portrait - may I ask you which lens you are using - I love the bokeh! I can see it's a 50 1.4, but is it a vintage one, or Canon's current one?

I use Helios 44-2 with adapter, this lens was made in USSR, so yes, it is a vintage lens, if it can be called so

Thanks for getting back to me; I had been looking into adapting some old lenses and had looked at a Helios 135mm. With the quality of this shot, I'm convinced it's worth a go. :)
