Portrait of Valerie

I don't mind the overall darkness, but I feel her eyes could be a bit lighter and sharper.
I like the pose
The whites of her eyes look like you captured her right after she stopped crying over something. Did you? Is this what you mean to say?
Maybe try bringing the light out a tiny bit more so that it's lighting her eye more. Or you could bring in a reflector in front of her.
I really like the mood of this shot...but like has been pointed out, would be nice if the eyes had a little more light. Not sure if that would spoil the mood though.
this feels like it's a little too close for comfort for me. if that's what you're going for, then do your thang, but, i might have pulled it out just a bit to frame her face more with her hair.

it kinda feels like she has really short arms, and a really big head.
