*Howdy from the Critique Club*

First of all, this photo is very busy there is all kinds of things going on and to much completion with the main subject. I think you could have cropped from the left of the photo and removed some of the clutter and also this would taken her off center. The colors are ok, but maybe black and white here. I tried this and the green channel seem to make it pop a bit.
Also I would have cloned out the reflection on her face. You might have tried a vignette this would have put more on your subject. These are just ideals, I tried several ways but it was to much Photoshop for me. I did like the repeating lines in the archways. I really have to agree with most of the commenters on this one. I try not to sound harsh that is not the way I am. Also you need to keep your file size close to the 150kb limit, so you don't loose any more image quality. Let me just show a quick redo on your shot and see if you like it any better. Please let me know if you don't want my version of your image online, and I'll take it down.

You have yourself a wonderful day and good luck in furture challenges.

Expression isn't captivating, she looks bored. Centred composition not effective here. Composition too cluttered.

Great idea, kind of a cluttered shot, so I find myself searching for the subject at first... technically well done, a polerizer might have helped with the reflections in this shot...

Sorry but this is a bit "snapshottish" to me, doesn´t seem well thought out, especially because of the centered composition.

Did you pose this or just lucky? Either way, it is a fine composition.

My first consideration was that this is more of a reflection than a frame. Looking closer, I see that it is both. I think that I would have cropped her a little differently to get her out of the center, but nice capture overall.

I like the repeating motive of the semi-circle.

Is this a self portrait? If it is you did a nice job of shooting from the hip.
