I like it, the light is just about right, condusive with the mood of the shot. It could do with lifting just slightly. Also a slight crop to remove the bracelet too wouldn't go amiss, they do add a slight distraction.
On more of a personal level I find the unframed upload adds too much depth to the shot set on the black B/G, a slight white border to help hold the viewers eye on the subject may help, IMHO.

Regards

Stewart

thank you for your feedback stewart. Not sure how to do borders or even if you can in lightroom (only purchased yesterday).

no need for cropping a great shot however if you used a white background on epz that would show you have cropped enough to make a great imae well done.
