    Honestly not muh there.
    Highlights are to bright and shadows are to dark.
    Try working with a little more even lighting.

    It's too soft for me. Try sharpening it a little, and maybe do a re-take without the shadows. I'd love to see a second try on this, it has potential.

    It wouldn't listen because forming the light is the photographer's job.

    I like the original a lot better than the processed one. It seems more natural or something.

    I think it would have been better if you had used a simple flash fill to make the lightining even. Any how nice composition.

    I like what you did, but the shadows are too dark on her face for my taste. I love the softness you created with it though. Very angelic. :) But work on the highs and lows a bit more.
