There are a few things I'd like to applaud you for with this image relating to the general mood :)

- To me it has a great depth, a 3D effect, if you will. This in turn makes it feel very, very real and almost as thought she's right there in front of you.
- I think you nailed the facial expression here. I'm sensing sensuality, softness, gentleness and her eyes has a rather powerful connection with the camera.

The only thing I'm missing, if I am to find anything less than optimal, is the brightness of her eyes. Compared to the brighter spots on the face they seem dark and don't command they attention they deserve. In my opinion :)

Overall, great job!


Thank you for your kind words Peter!
I agree with you, the eyes are a bit dark, I made the mistake of placing my light too high.
