Welcome to the site,
Just so you know, you have posted this in the Critique section, where your basically asking for an in depth review of the picture.
I would suggest, it would be a good idea to put some details about what the image is, how it was taken, if you have any aim in mind, about technique, style, lighting or whatever your looking for advice on.
If its just a general post, then dont tick the Critique box next time, hope this helps.
the image seems a little soft, what equipment are you using? It also seems just a tad noisy, and there is a little overexposure on the far left side.
You have a very pretty model, and your on the best site on the web for any help, or advice you may need, Just ask anyone.
Looking forward to more from you,
Welcome to EPZ. Congratulations on making your first upload on the day you join.
Anthony has made several useful points. I would also point out that you have ticked the Black and White Category, probably by accident. I guess it should be in People.
The light area top left looks as if it is degraded by flare, did you use a lens hood?
She is a pretty girl and I'm sure we will be seeing more pictures of her.
To deal with the problem of the flare on the upper left-hand side I duplicated the image in CS2 and lowered the exposure and increased the contrast using curves. I then used the gradient tool and a layer mask and balanced the b/g image and duplicated image so the flare was greatly reduced.
I used adjustment layers to increase the saturation a little and adjust the contrast and mid-tones (saturation, curves and levels).
I then selected only the eyes and mouth and used a contrast curve ( 's' shaped ) on them to give more visual impact to the face.
Next, I softened the skin only, using gaussian blur at a radius of about 1.5. Creating a layer mask I painted back everything except the skin ( excluding the mouth, nostrils and eyes ).
I finally sharpened the image using smart sharpen and saved to web.
The image is very noisy and this degrades the tonal qualities and detail of the image. This is caused by using too high an ISO setting or under exposure. A DSLR will deal with this problem better than a point and shooter.
The model looks very good and seems to have plenty of confidence and personality, so you should get some excellent photo shoots with her.
