Nice portrait capture Kim. Good eye contact.
As a suggestion have you looked at a square crop to this one, come in from the bottom to just about where the lighter grey starts to go down sharply, think this will focus you more on the face of the model.
You could also just then clone out the other bit of light grey.
Regards Richard

I quite like the framing, I think the model coming in at an angle is nice, perhaps just burning in the bottom right & left corners a little would help focus more attention on your models face. As above, a square crop could also work well.

Overall though I find the lighting a little flat and straight on, there is no modeling on her face, hardly any shadows created by her nose, cheekbones or eye sockets. Moving the light around to the right slightly and a touch further away would have rectified this.

The highlighted areas on her skin could do with toning down also, particularly the one on her forehead connecting her eyebrows. Some simple 'airbrushing' or careful burning in could easily get rid of the problem.

Regards
Paul
