Can I suggest blurring some of her dress and shoulders. This would help put the focus on her face and eyes. Right now, I have too much in focus to look at and my eyes aren't concentrating on her beautiful face.

Very nice old fashioned looking model shot. Good lighting and composure and a nice expression on the model too.

Gorgeous mid-key processing. Feels very classic indeed. I suspect you've done your homework on how to light/process this.

I'm very interested in throw-back portraits like this. This is nicely crafted, though the shadows are a bit too harsh in my view. 6

shadows maybe a little harsh. Bright central area draws eyes away from her face. good luck
