I like the square crop here Ian, but this has lost something in the conversion to mono - the shadows around her face (with particular emphasis around her eyes) and her lips, are too dark. You could try to get some more light onto these areas whilst retaining the dark contrast of the rest of the shot (I assume you wanted this look).

Ok thanks yes I wanted a very grainy look that showed all pores etc but had trouble with the eyes/lips. i used CS3 desaturated pic (maybe should have taken in B&W?) then altered contrast/brightness and played with curves its almost what I wanted but not quite. Thanks for input

I'm afraid I find this very hard and not very flattering at all. You say you wanted this look - so be it, but to the casual viewer it doesn't imply a very pleasant person. This is where it becomes a personal view because the sharpness etc. is good - just don't like this treatment of a younger female at all - leave it for the old crones.
