It's mehhh, lacks polish and some depth.

I would've set it a bit more off center to create more shadow on her face and add a little dimension, but I think it's one of your better photos! And if that's the first time playing with the flash, I'd say you're not off to a bad start. smile

Have fun with the new strobe! I'm hoping to get one myself soon. smile
