I would have used the 135 for this.

Forgive me for asking this, I'm still trying to learn. I have the Canon 50 1.4 and the Canon 135L. Why would you have chosen to use the 135L for this as opposed to the 50 1.4?

Thanks for your responses so far... I am well aware that the 135L would have been better suited but I happened to throw on the 50 1.4 to see what it could do. I actually hate the 50 1.4 so I don't use it at all. Outside of that, is there anything I could improve on to make this a "wow" image?

Mike, the image you posted with the 50 1.4 still looks good to me on my laptop.

I think i would have had her turn a little more to her right. It would avoided looking at her arm pit and I think would have presented a little nicer line.

Why do you hate the 50 1.4?

I'm not a fan on my Full Frame and I don't think my copy is very sharp.

Use ISO 100 instead. 50 is only over exposed 100 by 1 stop.
