The chest is way over exposed. A one stop silk diffuser would have elminated that, then a silver reflector to just bring up the right side of her face a little more and the pic would be a perfect . Doing all that takes a damn crew though and its hard to get people to do that unless there paid hehe. Sometimes friends will help and diffusers and reflectors and those items are the best way to manipulate natural lighting so that it worrks for you and not against you.
oh difusers are great
basically silk... usually one stop silks if you can stretch it on a scrim jim or some kind of frame. we have used them just hanging in a door way. I use a one stop diffusers 5x6 foot and it is very light. one person can hold it over a scene for a few minutes easily or i can clamp it to a stand.
