Good shot. Lighting is perfect.

I don't know if the fact that she is a bit off to the right was deliberate - if not it was a bit more precision in the framing might have a benefit. But the composition and colour are very good otherwise.

The tattoo is out of place in the picture I think. As a contrast with the very formal nature of the subject and to add modernity (and a touch of punk) to it, it works but it needs to be more forward in the picture. If it wasn't intended then I might try brushing it out (a tough job considering the gradient of light on it).

Perfect except for tattoos!

Some long silk gloves maybe?

Think her hair blends too much into backgrounds, needs a rim light to seperate.

I'd go with what they ^ said.

You need a hair/back light or to lighten the background shadows.
Tattoo looks a little out of place, unless you're going for a steam-punk look. Also I'm not sure they placement of the hands is entirely natural, the hands and the fur cover a lot of the detail of the dress. Did you take any shots without the fur?

Is there a reason for being off centre? The fur gets cut off by the cropping of the photo. If she's going to be off centre, I'd personally prefer more space around her.

Cheers guys!

In terms of the composition, it is one of a few I took in a doorway and there was a bloody red box on the wall behind, and the light was coming on an angle, in that particular doorway, this was the best composition.

I do wish I had separated the hair with a further light though, I see this now thank you.
