Reminds me of a man I saw in an apothecary in Sturbridge Village Mass. Somehow the minimal works with the natural light and less than dramatic exposure, fitting for the harsh olden times...

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

I really like these 'environmental' portraits where it gives you a sense of the person by either character or where they work/play. Very clearly from the backdrop this woman is a healer and the period of dress is from days long past (pioneer days methinks). The lighting and details you captured are splendid. I do have one little critique that I feel would make the composition even stronger. I think it would have been better if you zoomed up a bit more to eliminate the bottom 20% just about where one can see that paper. Zooming up closer would have a twofold effect on the composition. First, the the backdrop of the medicine bottles would fill the scene without any distracting elements; it would further compliment the healer in her environment. Second you would bring your audience closer to the personality, showing off more details about her by getting up into the greeting distance.
