Have you applied lens profile correction?

I like your work, but this one does not work for me except. perhaps, as a learning experience. The combination of lens, lighting and angle does an injustice to your wonderful albeit awkwardly posed model.

Thanks.. no, I thought about it after the fact, the profile corrections, would that have fixed the leaning? I will try when I get back home.

Emmm... The leaning is too strong here for you to be able to correct it, I'm afraid. It won't work.

(Assuming you were using off-camera lighting)

Your flash needed to be tilted down more. Its hitting way above the model.

Her legs are way bigger than her head.... just doesn't look right. Also, the halo from the dropped in background, needs to be smoothed out. I like the clarity, detail, and general tonality of the image... but the distortion on the young lady just keeps sucking my attention in.

It is very stylish photo. I don't know how it is called exactly. Avatar?
So, if it is Avatar style photo is it well done. Cartoonish and unrealistic.

If you reshoot this, I'd suggest a different dress, pose, and camera placement. Camera seems to be near the floor. Try raising it to at least her waist level. Have her in a solid color dress (red or black) and make eye contact with a stern expression.

I would first recommend getting rid of the shadow which can be done with a selection tool or a dodging tool. Unless you want them to express the mood from the lighting. Love the detailing to the clouds but there's a blue fringe on the outline of the castle that makes it look a little tacky.

Second, the composition is lacking. The angle isn't flattering for the model (legs are the centre of attention rather than face). It could also be a flash issue with the flash emphasizing the shadow and detail on the legs while leaving no dynamic range on her face for details. This could be fixed by raising the flash to eye level (not always possible)

In a beautiful symmetrical structure such as this tower, it needs to be centred or placed in a natural focal point such as a third or a leading line.

I do love the smoky feel in the clouds. Wow, I love it.
