other than amputating it, i think had she turned her hand the other way (fingers pointing the same direction as her other hand) it would have slightly bent her elbow, pulled her face down and more to the camera, and all looked more natural.

It's a matter of details -- you have to look critically at everything in the viewfinder. She could have leaned back just a hair and bent that are slightly and it would have been a much different image!

Apart from the above suggestions... it may have been advisable to use a longer focal length lens if on was available... the shoulder being closer to the camera has become more prominent than is generally desirable.

You have her 'turtleing' (head going into sholders)

Arm straight needs to be bent

old rules but workable

The idea is to put a littke weight as possible in arms
to keep them relaxed so they dont thicken

- rules do not apply to weight lifters

Casey:

When ever I see a model lock her elbow I say this: "Don't lock your elbow, but just where you start to feel it begining to lock is where I want it." This actually serves two purposes. One it prevents the model from putting a lot of pressure on the elbow and relaxes the mussels in her upper arm for a more flattering look, and two, I solve the locked elbow problem. But it does change the pose because the model can't support herself in that one spot where the elbow begins to lock and has to lean back (as Bob suggested).

In your image here just by moving her shoulder to the right 2-3" could have helped out. As long as it didn't interfere with her hair.
