I like the shot but I shouldn't look at images for this long.....I get nit picky....

The light isn't bad but may be a bit hot in spots on the face - forehead and cheek bone. And the light fall off to the right is quite severe but controlled on the face. Move the light closer to the camera or use a reflector to fill the shadow? The expression is questioning - a smile might work better here. Color is OK but tending toward a bit too red for my tastes, especially in the shadows.

And as a general rule I would use portrait orientation here.

It looks a touch underexposed. Look at the whites of the eyes. Try desaturating a little to take the redness down a bit. Shooting from this point of view makes her jaw look bigger than it probably is. Check your tone map apart from that big black area on the right. I'll bet that you'll see a thin large spike on the left (the black stuff) tailing off in the middle somewhere. Lastly, why the horizontal crop when it cuts off the top of her head and leaves vacant space on the sides?

Nice work - you caught a pensive expression.
