C&C Please... my first portrait

Please C&C, this is my first portrait, it is not shopped, but it will be getting a PS finally tomorrow so just let me know what i can do to make up better.... i was thinking it might look good in B&W also. oh,and dont mind that thing in the upper left corner, i plan on cropping it out or re-shooting it w/o it.

looks a bit soft to me. also, the crop looks tight, but i think it's only because she is pressed against a wall.

Anyways, yes the picture that you took is not sharp. What lens are you using while taking this? Also, if you can get some different lighting or so, maybe that would help the composition and get your lens to target her face and get it sharp. I think the location is a little 'overdone' but whatever she or you decide is a good is fine also.


Update!
Why did you shoot her with your camera set in "Landscape mode"?! You used 119mm Focal length at F5.6 with your Xti. Get more light on her and focus correctly.

I was wondering the same thing. I looked through the EXIF data and then had a double take on the exposure setting and was like "Abuwuhhhh?"

Don't change anything in photoshop. Let the girl enjoy her new facebook picture, then learn how to use your camera.

ya i kow lol. i was waiting at her house b4 i went to work and i had my camera w/ me so i wanted to take some pics of her, it was a very spur of the moment thing and was the ony lens i had w/ me. so i took 3 photos and the first one i accdidently had on landscape . i changed it up but i liked this one the best (the other 2 positions were'nt workin).
