Great portrait! The crop just chops her head. I'm not sure if it's bad, maybe it helps the intimacy of the photo, but maybe it would look better with just a little more headroom.

Good idea for foreground bokeh. The out of focus guitar neck/hand leads us to look at the little girl playing the guitar. I wonder if having the little girl look at the guitar intently, like she's really playing away, would also work. My one nitpick is that the image looks a tad "over noise-ninjaed" (or similar noise removal software). (7)

Nicely composed, but would have liked to see more blur in the foreground and the perhaps not so much blow out from the window behind your subject.
