I would say that the ring flash is doing its job well. The model looks very close to the background, and normally quite a hard shadow would be cast. There is a shadow there but it is very soft You could probably get it even softer so that is almost not there with practice.
Overall though the lighting seems slightly too strong, tell tale signs of overexposed area on cheek-bones, and forehead, and I would try and soften it, probably by reducing the power of the flash.
thanks for the feedback Michael, I agree that she is too close to the background - due to the room size and the 90mm lens, I think a 50mm lens would be a better choice.
I like the composition but the lighting is a little too harsh. Don't think you're too far off. Soften the flash and the lighting will sort itself out.
