Super cool location.

With regards to the photo I think the models skin tones blend to much into the background.

Just my thoughts ~ MR

I liked the concept in this B&W.  One suggestion would be to position that model in front of a darker building or background.  As it looks, her hair blends a lot into the background.  Not sure if that's the look you were going for, but it distracts from the model too much for me.

It might be interesting to have a few shots of her looking away from the camera's eye, as well.

I like the pose and the background.  If anything, I might try not to crop such small bits of the head and hand out, as it looks like it's between wanting to be zoomed in or zoomed out.  And maybe trade some of the negative space on the left of the model and put it on the right of her.  See how that look grabs you.

Nice start, though.  Keep shooting.

All the space above her head and you still cropped off her finger tips
Black dress lacks detail
Looks like models right forearm is overexposed
Add more light to the eyes, right now they look like dark circles

Agree a different background would help the model stand out better

If the model is the subject, then a tighter crop over all would help show case her
