Good shot! I'd move her a bit to the left though, not leave her straight in the center... And great photoshopping BTW!

It is a great shot and a fun pose. I agree with Snowcat and also, is it just me or is the skin just slightly overexposed? But I like the lighting. Care to share the set up?

Yes its over exposed by purpose, original is not . I like to have this kind of burn on her skin. Imho its make her look younger, more glamourish.
As for crop, i can agree. But it will loose some of the "power" id like to keep glowing from this picture. Also there is huge fish tank on the right side. My background is coming soon, still in shipping.

I guess overexposed is a relative term. I think of overexposure as having the histogram pegged to the right with no retrieving it. Bright exposure is what I would call having much of the histogram to the right, but not up against the wall, so to speak. I would call this shot bright, but not overexposed. It is bright enough that it may appear overexposed if the monitor is turned up all the way, but that would be a monitor error, not an exposure issue.

As for the image itself, I think it is quite good.
