Taken in the kitchen using a couple of desk lamps and a bit of fill in flash.
Cropped, Levels, topaz adjust, and de-noise. Cloned out a few stray hairs and some distracting toothpick decoration on the pumpkin. Shouldn't really be submitting this for an expert editing challenge.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Ah, a Halloween Hamlet:-) Lighting on the pumpkin, woman's head, and hands is well done. The drawback is the black long sleeve shirt she wears blends in so well with the black backdrop that her head and hands appear to be disembodied - at least that is how it appears on my P.C. but it may be different on a brighter screen laptop. Not sure about the thin orange outline border - I think it would do far better without the introduction of a new element that could draw some focus away from the main subjects. I have one suggestion that could make the image even more visually appealing. Had the model held up the pumpkin higher than her head she would have to be looking up at it. This would allow us to see her eyes. As it is here her eyes are downcast and with the shadow that falls in that area it would help if her eyes were open such that the whites of the eyes give greater contrast.
