The dof works nicely here to isolate and accentuate the face. I think the only thing I would want would be a little more light in the eyes.

I hope you used a very very long lens! Nicely focussed.

I really like the emotion in her eyes here. It's a shame she didn't have her head tilted up slightly, as it might have put more life into her eyes. Nonetheless, she still looks ready to come at you, so you've done a great job of capturing an emotional moment.

The image is well titled, has nice colours, and good focus. Great job.
