Looking for advise on this. Currently this was taken with a Canon 10D with a 75-300mm lens at 5.6f
What I think needs improvement...
-color
-lighting
-sharpness / focus

I am getting a Canon 20D then 30D as stepping stones and my Canon 70-200mm 2.8 L-series is on its way.

it looks flat, you cut the pod off, and it looks like every other usual paintball shot.

Here's a gear Idea.
dont buy a 20d and 30d, save a little bit more and just get a 1d2.

looks good, maybe just a little more detail/light on some parts of the hair, and if the light were a tad softer you'd get rid of the glare on her forehead/cheeks.
also, the shadow under her chin is bothersome.

Evo - Her hair is damn interesting. I'd like to see all of it in the shot.

Grim - Pretty rough man. Strange angle, subject is poorly lit, bad background, useless space on the left. Practice makes perfect, just make sure you keep these things in mind

DOF is not something you achieve by editing.

BTW is a bad photo.

It almost looks like you gradient mapped tan into that, or pulled some saturation. Having her face more towards you would also help.
