im a bit confused what is henrys image show? now i notice there is a background hung up behind the model which in my opinion could have been a better colour but i think this shot wasnt meant to be . (a off the record shot)
if henrys is a proffesional shoot or event then where is the lighting? as there is a shadow cast behind her head also i have always been told it is the little things that count (unless in the bedroom LOL) but the chair appears to be dirty too?

i would consider a tighter crop on this one if possible did you manage to take any other shots?

It is not a prof shoot event. Lighting is not dedicated i.e. you can only rely on your strobe. Flash shadow is usually unavoidable unless the photographer goes without flash (larger aperture). I love these type of events as it is free and very demanding indeed. But photographer needs to fight for the best angle amidst like 20 others.
I should have gone but I did not.
Henry is a major camera store in Toronto. Typically this is a sales occasion

Default Condition of the photo site

This is the condition of the shot. Height and space is very limited.

It is challenging lighting situation. You did the best under the circumstances.
The other remote possibility and there is no guarantee of better image is to use longer lens (135 - 200mm) wide open with no flash. Tricky indeed

Yep to much lighting issues!
needs to have one for the back light so shadows don't come around and then the one with her facing has two shadows under her neck I would have adjusted the lighting before shooting the shots on all the shots.

I wrote something like that years ago using Pentax or Nikon 200mm lenses

Basically long lens plus fill flash should do the job without casting a shadow behind the subject in similar situation with very distracting background
