Perfect, the start of the journey! A hint of apprehension and fear which fits the mood and monochrome and how dwarfed she is by the trees!
This works for me. And yes, the pose is integral to its impact. You're lucky enough to get nice soft but fairly thorough light on the figure.
Thanks for your comment. The light was rather flat that day as I recall. I had to get Becky to stand just outside the edge of the woods to get enough light on her. That placement was also so she didn't get lost in the composition. Glad you like it.
very nice and it's so sweet how she holds her hands
Very nicely composed.
