It's cold and rainy here in South Texas, very unusual weather for a sub=tropical zone. I see this picture and all I can think about is how nice it would be to take a nap.... Hibernation here I come.

I generally like it, except for two points. The small bit of red on the tag on the window blinds is distracting and I would like to see her eye peeking over the pillow a bit more clearly. Perhaps a bit less hair in the way.

rarely is the light perfect, it often needs a little help... except maybe when shooting landscapes.

The cords their ends/tags for the blinds, remove before shooting or in PS2, like they said, more of her eye, and the strap for her bra/shirt, stake those away, and maybe burn in the edges some, youhave the makings of a nice photograph.

Ansel Adams said that "the negative is the score, the print the performance" so play with it, make it the feel, the moment you saw in your mind's eye that you wanted to share, try an infrared filter on it, or perhaps blow it out a little and sepia tone it, perhaps make it cool blue, or x-proc it with some actions.

Besides the cord tags already mentioned, there is a lot of clutter in the background with a pink thing, crumpled sheets/pillows, etc. IMO, the image would be stronger with a few more moments clearing the background before shooting. While I'd like to see more of the eye as mentioned, it could help to bring the shadows up a little more in this area. Good first try, keep posting.

It's a question of composition. The entire top half of the frame has visual clutter, but nothing of interest. On possible approach to improve this would be to shot down from a higher angle. About half of the time I am shooting someone in bed I am on a step ladder. The rest of the time I try to get in tight to eliminate distractions from the frame.

The natural light on the right side of the frame models the curves of her posterior nicely, but there is a little too much fall off as you get to her face. A large piece of white cardboard would probably have been enough of a reflector to provide enough fill.

Are these by any chance non-posed (i.e. candids of the wife/girlfriend that she didn't know you were taking)? That would explain a lot about the clutter, etc., since someone actually taking a nap wouldn't worry about what's in the background of a picture they didn't know was going to be taken.
