I think it is a very nice shot. I like the symmetry. I'm not clear on the title of Retro however?

It's weird that when I put noise on the picture myself I like it but like now when somebody else is doing it i don´t like.

I think you always feel and see your own photos differently.

What if the model would have been much closer to the door? Then there would be some story...

I like the shot, but go the extra step and clone out the black object lying on the ground near the model's dress and perhaps clone stamp out what could be some sort of pantyline on her dress that crosses over to the bright side of the image. Might also be better if model was further from camera so the bottom of the dress wasn't cut off.

Cool shot.

An alternate to also try, maybe copy and reverse the ramp handrail from the left to the right, making it nearly symmetric separated by the model?

When going for symmetry, I like it to be as close to perfect as possible. The two banisters are at quite different angles. That isn't something you could change--I guess one of them is beside a ramp--but, in addition, the model isn't centered on the doorway, and her left forearm and hand are farther out to the side than her right. More of the building is present at the left edge, too.

This is a moody shot that gives me the impression that it wants to tell a story.
