Not much of an authority on portraits butt the light seems a little sharp from the left.
This has highlighted on the left of her lips and nose.(the nose/face might be angled a bit more to the left to get rid of that one highlight .
Hair etc is spot on.

Hope this helps.

Well it's obviously a decision to produce the highlights from the left, given it's position and brightness. I think it works well, and the key light to the right has been properly exposed for on the right side of the face. The only fly in the ointment for me is the dark shadow to the left of the nose - caused by having the other light so bright and so far round to the side. I'd have put a reflector or another fill light just to the left, but you can lighten it a little in Photoshop as well. Styling wise I think it's great.

nicely lit portrait!
maybe a little too strong from the left (in the picture).
her espression is fabulous, but her eyes could have come out even more, had they been a little bit sharper.
As Kim mentions, the hair is perfect in my eyes, adding movement.

Lighting is good, soft shadows, no harshness here, very soft and inviting, I like the way her hair wisps down her chin to frame her face...her expression makes me unsure what she is thinking, sneaky, sexy, a come to me look that comes through her eyes. A sexy, sensual photo. KevBK

Thx for all of your constructive comments. It will help me to take a good portrait photo in the future.

The light coming from the left side is making the nose seems too harsh, try a soft light and a little more placed towart the will model the face without that washed look on the nose
