The shadows of my soul

Greetings from the critique club :)
Well hi there Guðbjörg, always fun to critique a fellow Icelander.
Well I kindof like it too but I don´t love it, if I had voted I probably would have given it a 6. It´s a pretty cool shot, I like the wind in the hair and the shadow in the window falling on her. The black areas are too much for my taste though, I would have either wanted to see a little bit brighter shadows or simply a photo that cropped a lot off the top and bottom of this photograph.
I don´t fully understand the camera settings, why iso 800? If it´s grain you are looking for, sure but that won´t be visible in web resolution anyway, why not may be 1/125 shutter, iso 100 and 5.6? Eh, that is just what I would do so don´t listen too much to me, I just think that would have lead to better image quality.
Nice choice to make it b/w, I think this photograph would do well in a series with several others like it so just keep at it and work on your own style.
Kind regards from your own Iceland, Lárus.
