I love the color palette, harmony and overall look, great job on the hair.
There are a couple of things that I think would benefit the image, the feet
are pretty faithful to original, but I feel the toes distract and could be just
me, I would have skin in that spot (makes it look like her shoes don't fit)
thats just me. Something I think is needed is contact shadows for shoe and microphone stand.

I like everything but the face and armpit.

I think you can work a little more on the armpit to be in the same "level" as the rest of the picture.
The face looks wrong. I can't really point what I dislike about it, though.

Great work, though! Keep it up!

the floor is shot from a completely different angle than the foot, so it looks wrong. we're seeing the top of the floor, and the side of her foot. they don't match.

use a photo of a floor and microphone that's shot at the same angle - or try transforming the floor layer so it looks more convincing.

here's a shot with the floor and the heels shot from the same angle - we see much less of the floor. we're not looking down at it as much.

Pretty awesome :]

Agree on some of the things mentioned, like contact shadows and perspective of the floor.

But I think what really stands out is her powdy lower lip.
Yes, she should have full luscious lips, but both of them, instead of only her lower lip.

I'd also reduce the buldgy upper leg.

Needs hosiery. Otherwise, very nice.
