The halo effect on the left side of the face is'nt working for this picture. Get rid of it. It works for the other side becuase that's where the light is comming from, and her hair is appropriately highlighted, but for the shadow side it just simply makes the whole image look like it was copy and pasted onto a background plate. The face looks good. There is a uniform grain across the entire picture. I'm not sure if this is part of the photograph or if it is a filter. Iether way. I think a good way to push the entire dream like effect is to make it so the face is perfectly clear without any kind of filter, but as you pull out away from the face you should make a suttle shift twards the filtered look. although that is up to you

geee, thanks for those comments.
The fact of the grain was due to a bad light conditions.
I didn't use a tripod, so that's why the image has that grain.

Well, I'm looking for a new photoshot with better lighting with her.

Thanks again :hmm:

the background and hair are in cooler greens but her face and all of the reflected light on her face is quite warm. Try putting a bit of green in the eye highlihts and shadows. myabe a bit of very pale green on the lightest part of her face... I do like the quality of the skin though the luminous feel works well!
