EXCELLENT shot. But I have to agree to an extent with your friends. The main problem is the dress and a little in the face is washed out. If you darken and purhaps increased the contrastin those areas I think you'll have a trully great shot.

Yes, I outlined the dress starting at the lower left up under her right arm, across the top of the dress down to the left of her left arm following the dress line to the bottom. I lowered the brightness, added a little bit of red and then sharpened the focus on the total picture one position. I think it brings it more into balance.
