Very new to photography. Hope you like it.
nice picture. How about not cutting off her legs?
As Chip mentioned, with all of the space you have in the image, it would have been nicer to have all of her legs, but at least you didn't cut them through a joint. Cropping limbs is acceptable if you need to, provided (generally) it's done boldly and you don't cut through limbs.
Not sure what lens you were using, but if you had the chance, composing more tightly on the subject would hav been better, failing that, crop some of the empty space around her; it doesn't serve any purpose. It's good that you have her looking "into" the picture, that is, looking into the larger part of the picture space.
Hope that helps; just my $00.02 worth - your mileage may vary.
