A good portrait, I like the pose of the model.
Just a few words in the 'Description' box would really help with giving critique, or hints on how to improve. For instance, are you happy with this image? If you are then it's perfect and other opinions don't really matter!
For me the image is rather 'flat' and quite soft - I did take it into Photoshop Elements 9, but found when I adjusted the 'Lighting' and 'Contrast' it became very noisy - as your EXIF details show an ISO of 3200 that's not very surprising! I think the main problem with this image is lack of light, using flash would have allowed you to lower the ISO (if you find the flash too harsh, a small cover made of tissue would soften it).
I also feel there is a lot of empty 'space', but again this could be what you wanted. Personally I would get a little closer to the model.
If it's a self portrait then you've done brilliantly, I know how difficult it is to capture yourself!
This is a nice looking portrait it is a little bit on flat slide but never mind over a period of time you will find different ways's doing photos like this which will improve well done

If you’ve ever dealt with high-contrast lighting - a landscape under direct sunlight or a brightly-lit screne shot from inside a darkened room - you’ll appreciate what Active D-Lighting has to offer!
If you have the camera on a tripod during live view, you can zoom in on your subject in the monitor for precise focus.
For subjects that are in motion, choose Dynamic-area AF.
If your subject is poorly lit, shutter speed will slow and pictures may be blurred. You can choose a high ISO sensitivity for faster shutter speeds and sharper images.
This option controls how autofocus adjusts to sudden large changes in the distance to the subject during continuous-servo AF.
