In your opinion does the composition of this photo work ?

Yes and no :). Yes, because I like the fact that the chair rail leads you into her eyes and also that the dark line of the counter top leads you to her face as well. No, because IMO there's too much negative space on the left.

Here's a crop to a 4x5 ratio. If it were mine, I'd do some cloning of the door handles and microwave.

In my opinion, it doesn't work. There's not enough interest in the negative space. Maybe if it followed the rule of thirds more precisely (her eyes being exactly at the top horizontal and right vertical third), but even then, I'm not sure. . .

The real problem is that the door on the left cuts the frame off. Lose that altogether. Then the other stuff in the background is too "there". try a shallower dof. And the chair rail to the head is bothersome. Use your 50m at 1.8, get the kid off the wall. watch for things that cut the frame into segments.
