I like it, pretty good overall.
Nitpicking here, but I think cropping at her waist, and the right side (to even it out) would have made it slightly better. But that is real nitpicking. I just personally found the hands and watch distracting from the main focus. But what do I know! :?

The picture of the lady stands by itself. However, as noted by the other poster, the wall seems to beasking for an explanation. Since the picture is of the lady then the viewer is left wondering what the wall says as it leads off to the right. Shorten it enough so it doesn't interfere. Then again, after looking more closely,maybe the stone wallis telling ussomething about who the woman is; strong and purpose-driven, a lifetime of toil.The stone wall could be telling us she is metaphoricallyhewn out of stone as indicated by the careful layering of thestones intheir setting.

For some reason the watch bothers me too. Somehow it takes a tiny bit away from the character of the lady. The picture works otherwise. I like the dramatic appeal of your blackandwhite.

Wow. I think your description was more moving than the picture itself. Thanks for your awe inspiring words!
