It's a very nice photo. I wish it was a little tighter still, to see the detail on the nose jewelry. Don't be afraid to bring the subject closer in the frame - cut off the very top of her head even (I often say that once you know the rules, you're allowed to break 'em). It's those details that make a good photo a better one. Maybe even try another frame horizontally, keeping the subject to the right to elong her gaze - make use of negative space.
Nice! Interesting subject, lots of detail and color.
Good tight composition, no extraneous information.
Use of camera,
Nice exposure, plenty of detail in the highlights and shadows.
This looks more like a telephoto lens than the normal lens specified, especially at f/8, but I love the effect of the blurred out background.
Nice color, good skin tones. You might wish to increase the saturation just a little bit to make the colors pop.
Tack sharp on the eyes.
How to improve your photo
Midday is usually not the best time for portraiture, early morning and late day are best for color and dramatic lighting. Unfortunately, that doesn't always happen...
If you have the opportunity, play with your composition - come in closer, shoot some frames horizontally too, maximize your light quality when you can.
