Looks good to me. I might tend to agree with Frogfish on the fill on the left side of her face. Not much, just enough to get her eye and upper cheek out of the dark. I don't do many portraits, per se. so I can only comment on what I think, more than what I know...

Eddy, I couldn't stand it, so I did a quick edit to your original. Hope you don't mind. If I took more time it would be better...

I like it and I don't mind.

Actually, I went back and re-did mine.

Very good...Better than my quick try, to me... One thing I did you may not have noticed-I cloned "in" a catchlight to her left eye.

Very nice. I do like the fill version better, too.
