    Sart, this is not natural, it is too cold not to dress socks, look at the people behind her.. Is this part of your burberry shootings?

    As a Design Student myself. I can tell that she wants to be comfortable and stylish. She also needs tons of caffeine to keep up with herself. Great shot!

    She is so pretty but I'm not feeling her outfit. It's understated but not in a good way. I find it rather bland. And to be honest, it washes her pretty face out. The shoes are adorable though.

    Side note: Is that a Starbucks red cup? Are they out already?!

    I love the movement in this shot. her hair looks like it could still be blowing in the wind. and its not so cold quite yet. and looks like she doesnt have too far to go. she isnt overly loaded down with bags. just a purse and a designtoolbox. but again my favorite thing about this shot isnt so much the outfit as it is her face, attitude, and the movement.

    I love the light in this shot – it's illuminating but at the same time casts long shadows. Is this because you took it at a certain time of day? Or is it because at this time in the year, the position of the sun in the sky has changed, and thus this type of light results? I think you made a comment about similar light when you were in Sydney..(I'm a film student and curious to know lol)

    I don't like the pairing of that trench with those khakis; separately, I like them. To be honest, though, I'm far more interested in the woman on the right side of the frame–great coat, great bag, great boots. I'd rather see more of her!

    The contrast of her hair, and scarf, both framing her face, is very nice. Love the black nail polish. Then there's the plug for Starbucks! The photograph seems balanced with the man to her left and the woman to her right. Interesting how the blue lights are not clear on her left, but quite sharp above her head.

    In contrast to the A student, this photo appears to be shot earlier in the day (coffee, coats, sewing kit). Even after taking those factors into account, this woman gets a B. She could bring her grade up by wearing longer pants in a shade that is more complimentary to her sweater and her trench coat. The trousers wash her out, especially with the longer shot.

    I don't think it is her "handbag" as someone said – it's probably full of her tools! Either that or she is going fishing – looks a bit like a tackle-box!

    This girl reminds me of the shot from a year or two ago of a girl who was supposed to be a makeover. Whatever happened to her?

    Meanwhile, I finally decided that what I don't care for about this is the juxtaposition of the warm camel coat and cool khaki pants. The warm tones are better with her hair and skin.
