Very pretty subject and interesting use of light. I'm a little concerned with the soft processing. Looks kind of like spot editing in basic. Maybe you just had really sharp focus on the eyes and ran a slight blur over the whole image.
I really like the shot and she has a captivating expression. The softness everywhere is just not to my taste.

This is a very striking photo. I'm most intrigued by the beautiful soft focus. I'm dying to know how you did it. I have to guess it involved some kind of blur layer. The texture of the skin is dreamlike... very soothing and soft. There's something else about the image that throws me a bit. The lack of an undershirt with the hands on the zipper is very suggestive, although the subject looks very young. This make me uncomfortable in that it's a girl in the 14-18 year old range in a slightly suggestive image. The cross around her neck and the smooth texture make her seem very innocent and young which to me says it shouldn't be suggestive. Anyway... you've captured my attention with the quality of the image and the the above turmoil I described. I'd love to hear more about what you intended.

Nice effect on the face - pity the background is so busy.

Maybe just a little too much Neat Image, she looks too plastic to be a real person.

Good shot, but looks like you went crazy with the skin smoothing. The forehead, cheek, and part of her neck are too bright.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

To me it looks over processed - not being able to see any texture on the skin for instance

The pose is good, the light is good. Processing is a bit over done, lost all detail in the skin. Looks plastic, no detail left in skin.
