I like it, the light is just about right, condusive with the mood of the shot. It could do with lifting just slightly. Also a slight crop to remove the bracelet too wouldn't go amiss, they do add a slight distraction.
On more of a personal level I find the unframed upload adds too much depth to the shot set on the black B/G, a slight white border to help hold the viewers eye on the subject may help, IMHO.

Regards

Stewart

no need for cropping a great shot however if you used a white background on epz that would show you have cropped enough to make a great imae well done.
