Beautiful tones and contrast. Nice composition and framing. I do agree with the comments about eye contact.

I like everything about it except the hand/arm. Because it's the same color range and OOF, it kind of adds to her face instead of framing it.

nice, would have prefered to see her looking right at the camera, but that is just me. Nice crop and ligting.

More light and contrast in the eyes would have made this a better portrait

Would of liked to have seen a bit more light on her pupils of her eyes. Excellent shot otherwise!

If she had flicked her eyes up to look at the camera then this shot would have been magical.
