Nice shot of Ingrid--quite attractive, and uses good poses. I love her top--very colorful, and goes well with her shorts.
I like the seaside setting, and that it's all out of focus, so as to keep the focus on her.
One thing that might work well with this image is to use a dark frame, rather than the white with the thin black border. Since her clothing and even her skin is comparatively dark compared to the sky, you might get a better overall effect.
The first time it really occurred to me was when posting pics in my gallery; w/o a frame, the dA page seemed to just bleed the color out of the pictures. About that time I noticed what others were doing (including you), and started using them. I like what you've done with your frames for sunsets, with the black frame and border in a color that looks as if it was sampled from the sky in the photo--really adds to the image.
usually do that sampling with sunsets. . . But sometimes - particularly if the image is fairly light - I'm reluctant to sue a black frame as it sort of drags your eyes away from the subject towards the frame. At least that's what I think.
Yeah, I can see that. But in this case, it seems that the subject is dark, whereas the sky is light. Also, IMO, the frame seems to add balance to the tones in an image. Anywho, just my ten cents worth.

Great pose and flow here!
But agree with the smilling part. She would look a lot prettier and the photo would work better if she was smilling here! Just say this because this is a flirtty type pose and no man would come near her with that expression!
Ingrid Is very Beautifull but I think she should Smile more often... She's always seems to be sad... Something like that , like she was bored... i can't tell right... !! And yes the sign in the lower are a little distracting but the pose is very great and the light too Great Dof too...
this is what i was thinking !! don't convince just tell her jokes She will smile !! it's so Nice a girl with smile !! I love Spontaneous portrait !! I think it's more easy to have a real emotion... isn't it ?
