The bottom right and bottom 1/3 is way to blown out, and the shot does not say anything to me. Since the empty space is pretty bland because it is blown out. It looses what you were trying to say, with your subject being on the left 1/3 and the empty space.

I have to agree with Shoturtle about the empty pace and exposure level. The angle of the model is close to ideal for a posed portrait, maybe having the model turn the body a little more to the camera. Some prefer a candid shot which pulls the viewer into the photo with the subject, but this is personal opinion.

Yup, unless you are leaving the extra space for text for an inspirational poster, it should be cropped closer. If you had framed tighter, the exposure may have been a bit less over.
