You've certainly captured the tension Ian, like you I'm unsure about the crop though. Just using the vertical scroll bars cropping ever such a slight bit off the bottom of the picture seems to look better, just where the very top of the crease in her left arm pit remains in view (just below the rim of her blouse).

Quite right! The crease made by the armpit should be elliminated because it creates an unwanted center of attention. the model's head is so expressive that it alone begs the viewer's total attention. On the other hand, I see the contrast between the model's very expressive eyes and the strong shoulders as an essential element in this photograph. Finally, I would agree it is the left shoulder that needs to be worked on. A slight crop slightly below the armpits might work. Otherwise, I am really fascinated by the intensity of this shot. Cheers.
