There is a big star stuck right in front of the girl's face. Other then that try removing just the cool colors and see how you like it.

As they are now, I don't like them. I just don't know what to make of them.
I am not getting it as of now - maybe you can tell me/us what the image is really about. I fail to see what you are trying to show or say - unless it's only about a star.

Honestly? I think if you had a definite idea, stick with it and reshoot it. Clean the mirror would be my first advice. Second this image the way it is composed is no longer about you. It becomes about the most prominant feature - the star. Now i can tell by how hard you are working with your photography that if you stick with it one day you will be a star. Perhaps you are as bright as one now. But this image does not transcend that notion.

I think a reshoot is in order. Use your imagination and do it in a way that focuses more on the real subject - you.

well when i took this i was in a real sad mood, so the dirty mirror looked to me like tears in a way, just stained and i didnt want myself to be the subject because i wanted to be the girl with out the face longing to be a star. so i guess that i need to work on the way it is presented.

try recomposing so you are off to the side and slightly lower so that you are looking up to (longing) for the star
keep the focus on the star,
try a clean the mirror so that you don't see it then the star will look like it is floating in space and out of reach,
or with water drops to look like you are looking out a rain covered window
keep your camera out of the shot

have fun and experiment

I would crop out your hand holding the camera, it would simplify the composition and make your point stand out more IMO
