    Lighting is ok, nice looking model but she's a little too stiff... I would rather not have the shadow drop at the back... good work... keep it up...

    i feel that a reflector on the left would soften the shadows
    and get rid of the watch.

    also talk to the sitter and make her feel at ease b4 the real shoot begins.

    i hardly do portraits, but IMHO you should either go wider so that the left hand doesn't get 'chopped' awkwardly or crop tighter so that both arms form the frame. i would prefer a much tighter crop given her pleasant facial expression. i would also consider putting her in a different light (pun intended) right now the lighting looks rather flat, doesn't bring out the lighter mood in her ... yes, could be due to the shadow on her right

    I'm ok with the compo, although its not really great. I think the shadow and the watch are pretty distracting. Like ortega said, you have to communicate with the model to get more natural results.
