    It's a pretty good shot actually. But with an expression like that, I think it deserves a closeup.

    A few questions actually:
    1) What aspect of the model are you trying to bring out?
    2) What would the tilting achieve?
    3) The hands are a bit overexposed.

    Why not you tell us a bit more about what's your intention of shooting the photo?

    Tilting of this photo does not work for me... it feels like she's sliding all the way down to the left.. and make my head tilt also to appreciate her pose and beauty... just my 2cents...

    In my opinion, the reflection and the structure of the chair are some how quite distracting. The model's left hand is bending too much to her left, her posture might be more soothing if she will to face her palm down instead.

    3 things that stood out.

    1. Tilting doesn't seem to work out for this kinda shots she's like falling off the picture... maybe a crop without the sloping feeling of the floor might be better.
    2. The crossing of the right leg over the left seems kinda awkward for her. And personally i thought that a "outward" positioning would seem more "gentle"
    3. Overexposing of the arms and the uncomfortable angle of her left arm.

    I think a closer crop of the model would be really nice as the attitude is there.

    nice capture
