    That's kinda cool with the sunset reflecting in her glasses.

    Model looks good overall - I realize it's sunset but to me it still feels about 15-20% too dark.
    Fill flash/reflector would have added to this image imo.
    Hope that may help.

    I thought that myself but only if the original direction of the light source was maintained. I'm sure some processing could replicate the effect.

    Yep--It reads as a little underexposed to me as well.
