Wonderful light! Love the mood. Normally looking out the short side of the frame does not work for me. Here it makes the shot. One of my top picks.

Fantastic lighting, expression, etc. Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Captures Hanae's beautiful features and delicate bone structure but not her essential warmth and inner joy.

I like your composition here a lot. It leads me off the frame following her gaze. The only thing is, I think I might have liked the fan to be on the bottom left of the frame so as to balance the image because so much weight is on the right. Otherwise, I really like the soft focus and dramatic light. 8.
