I used a large opening intentionally to blur everything except the eyes.

First impression:
I like the lighting created by the opening especially when it comes to the catchlights. Seems as if the focus hit her forehead/eyebrows instead of her eyes.

Suggested improvement:
Nothing I can think of now.

I like your choice of such a shallow depth of feel to make the eyes the main focus. They are really nice and I think its great that you can see so much in them. There isn't much to be critical of here but I would be interested to see what it would look like if the green on the shirt were toned done a little (and maybe trying to clone out the black strap). Really interesting photo.

i like the shot but since you say you wanter to focus on the eyes, perhaps a slightly smaller aperature would have helped as the right is def. sharper then the left

Awesome eyes, love the serious expression, quite dramatic. (Looks like you have a mini-SP in the eye reflections).

Nice portrait! I may have focused a little lower potion & cropped the the top portion, keeping the eyes on the axis of rule of third.

I did try converting it to black and white, but I don't find it much better :)
