I think you were almost there. I like the hair definition against the background on the left, and her pose is good. I would have made the lighting a bit more dramatic - more shadow on the right to almost completely hide her arm, also the nose shadow on the face would be a bit more flattering. Watch your crop too - the theory says we shouldn't crop across a natural body joint, like the wrist. I hope this helps.

Bold......needs a touch more light to bring her out of the background (maybe one light from behind slightly?), but I like this. Dramatic light, good tones, nicely shot and framed....good stuff!

thanks for the comments ollimar71, very helpful tips. I was wondering if I should have moved my main light a little higher to help with the nose shadows?
