Lotta PP on this one. Crop, Convert from RAW (including strong boost to blacks/contrast), up contrast in lightness channel in Lab color (as well as slight adjustment to a/b channels 'till I liked it). Convert back to RGB. Airbrush with 30% opacity brush, burn hat shadow to more even black, sharpen with High Pass on Soft Light, extremely contrasty b/w layer set to multiply (20% opacity), d/b, darkening of lower part of image with curves masked with a gradient, and a couple of miscellaneous layers of vibrance and exposure I can't quite put my finger on at the moment.

Resize, sharpen, save.

She looks familiar. Nicely cropped. Lighting creates an uneven look to her skin.

Interesting composition, although the black areas sort of loses the appeal for me.
