Gimme at least one eye to look at ... both eyes are hidden, either by the bridge of her nose or her hair. The shadow her hair is throwing on her cheek is a little distracting as well.

I think that in a portrait the eyes are very important. in this image the eyes are hide from the hair

Good tone and contrast, framing is bad though.

A bit blurry on the facial details (esp. the the nose and eyes)...and it doesn't quite look intentional. One approach I use to help make it look intentional is to apply a "diffuse" filter to the entire image. Otherwise, though, this is a very flattering image. Thanks for sharing it!
