    Little bright in the back but other than that I like this a lot. Looks like you focused more on the coat than the person but either way cool setup.

    Person walking away in the back for some reason makes me think NYC.

    You should've focused on the eye. It would have looked better :)

    The idea is good, but I think the execution could use some improvement. The main subject is her face yet the hood is in more focus than her face or eye. I think it's a Depth of Field problem. I think it would have been better to see her right eye as well. If you understand rule of thirds, then her right eye would have been right on the lines.
