    Cute girl and her facial expression is cute too. I'd agree that you could crop it to fill the frame.
    There is a slight shadow in her left eye, maybe have her lift her head more or adjust the position of the flash?

    A little fill light from a reflector would have been nice to lighten up the girl's left eye. It's just a little too harsh.

    I agree with all above. More fill flash next time or a reflector perhaps. And crop crop crop. Next time, if you have clothing control, you may want to pick a different outfit. The word is drawing my eye away trying to figure out what it says.

    Adorable girl, thats always a help :)
