Well, since no one has been kind enough to give you their thoughts, I'll offer up a critique.

Neither this image, nor the one you posted before this (the "Another from the last shoot" post), are working for me. Compositionally, I think they're pretty good. That is, I think you have a good eye for form. But there are technical issues in these images that bother me.

The biggest thing I notice is that they suffer from too much contrast. You've got highlights and shadows to spare, but not much in the midtones. This points towards the need for better light control. It looks like there's a lot of specular side lighting. The specular nature of the light is giving you good color saturation, but it's also playing havoc with the contrast. I think your highlights are over-exposed, so my recommendation is to diffuse the light and go for better transition from highlight to shadow.

In my opinion, the light placement isn't working for you either. It's obvious to me that there are two light sources in these images. That is, the light is coming from two distinct positions. Since we, as humans, are used to one light source (the sun), the appearance of two sources confuses us. If you want to keep that saturated look then keep your main light small and specular, but use a diffuse light source (or a reflector) for your fill.

Finally, I think there's a color balance issue going on too. Your highlights look yellowish-green. Not sure if it's just me but something seems off in that department.

I hope the above didn't come across as too harsh. It's not my intent to appear mean or bust your chops, but I find this image (as well as the one in your previous post) technically weak. If I may ask, what light sources (strobes, hot-lights, etc.) and modifiers (umbrellas, softboxes) are you using?

Hard contrast. Popped the light right on narrow, causing hard lines. Soften? Little artsy blur? on the skin and top?
