I like the lighting and the fall off around the skirt. The crop bothers me. IHMO cropping the top of the head works better in a corner not dead center. Maybe also have the model turn a bit more towards the camera.

Cool, thanks..appreciate the feedback.  Unfortunately, I shot this one cropped like this in the camera, tight.  I actually added a little dead black space to the left of the image to try to get it not to look so tight.

Overall, it's a good image.  Yeah it would have been better a little more off center.  I'm not liking the light from below under her skirt.  To me it creates a bright spot that pulls my eyes away from her face.

What is the horizontal line between her legs?  I would clone that out.  Also tone down the up light.  The rest has been covered.

Aside from the above fix you are going to do, I liked the photo.
