MedicinSC, great image to work with by the way.
2 versions below:-
First an edit with multiple adjustments.
Contrast, highlight, skin, tone, added GND filter to background and legs, additional reflector onto face and upper torso, everything basically to my taste.
Did it work? Who knows, I had fun playing either way.
Second the usual composite, as the pose (in my mind anyway) led it that way.
Background, usual, courtesy of google images.
"Hold that pose"
