High quality as always, dare I say it wasn't you tempted to step to right to frame her in the gap?
Great shot

I know nothing about model and location shooting. What I do know is an inspired piece of photography when I see it. The model looks so out of place and yet so right in this location. The rainy day and your desaturation of colour adds so much to the final image. The building reflection fills the empty space and I suppose my only quibble might be the slight distraction of the canal barge? further along (not that you could do much about that). Also I am glad you did not frame the girl in the gap....don't think it would have had as much impact as directly below the tower.
Sorry Richard for prattling on........so I will just post my award and shut up Blush

A marvellous composition filled with the subtle desaturated colour, all the lines and just in the right place for you.
The dancers hand hovers over the barge perfectly as if about to pluck it from the scene.
Step to the right and lose the all important reflection, the dancer moves right and her hand loses touch with the tiny barge.
I'll bet you have many shots from here, this looks unbeatable for me Richard.

A very striking image that takes full advantage of the contrast between the refined elegance of the dancer and the gritty, industrial architecture.

The location is just down the road from where I live. I'm not there at the moment but I am willing to bet that the ballet dancer down by t'canal will be the talk of the Baildon Woodbottom W.M.C!
