Hello, I really appreciate your honest critique of my photo. I agree with your compositional concerns and that light in the bg is disconcerting. It was tuff conditions. This is one of the things I like about this site. I am able to learn how to make better photos from the honest critiques from members. I don't have too many people images in my gallery and I am still learning how to take better photos. Also I am still learning about the limitations of my camera. Perhaps with a larger aperture the photo would have been better.
Have a great day,
