You seem to do a lot of homework. This is one of the strongest most technically competent images I have seen from you. Very strong and a good viewing angle. You would get a pass mark from me for this one.

First of all the use of the reflector has paid off handsomely, the light on the sculpture is gorgeous, warm and mellow.
Focus and focal length are just right. I like the angle, it creates a very satisfying balance between the face and the curve of the arm. I wish you hadn't cut off the hand on the left though, this needs the full width there.
I wonder if the sculpture is fixed, or if you could move it around? The background is rather bright, and is divided between russets and greens. I find it a bit distracting. F5.6 has isolated the subject against it very nicely in terms of focus, but those colours are still very bright.
I can see three possible adjustments that I would try - partial desaturation of the background, to push it backwards; or possibly a straight b&w conversion; or just possibly a square crop from the upper part of the frame, which is where the main interest is.
I'll try a Mod or two.

Three Mods uploaded - designed simply to reduce the impact of the background. I haven't touched the sculpture itself, which you have captured beautifully.
