I like this Alan. With a close shot like this, and the way she is posed, symmetry and level eyes are important. This needs to be rotated a little to get the eyes level.

The lightbox reflection can be sorted out quite easily with cloning the reflection over, and replacing the catch-lights using a white brush.

Dont know if you were going for a high key look, - Ive done a mod that shows more skin detail, with the eyes sorted out, and also a mod with a diffuse glow applied to soften, and appear more high key.

Hope this is helpful,
