    Too much shadow and too much middle gray.

    Well, your fill light does not even look like it is turned on..given the shadow.

    i agree with MaxBloom.. too much grey. I prefer this type of photo to have a little more contrast. White is white and black is black. I kind of like the whole idea of the left side of her face being quite dark.. I would just focus on your main\key light area of the face, brightening that up a wee bit.

    With the main light so far off to the side and little or no fill...it's got a very artistic or edgy look to it...and as such, it's hard to offer critique. Either you pulled off what you were going for, or you didn't...but without knowing what you were trying to do...we don't know if you accomplished it or not. Do you know what I mean?

    I like the hair light and the separation it give her from the background.

    I agree that it could use a bit of 'pop'...whiter whites and more contrast.

    I'm not as concerned with the light as I am the fact that this (at least shown here) is not focused.

    If you are going for a dark look then you hit it. Dark is fine, but I think the shadow area is tough. I would at lest throw in a bounce card.
