This is one of many I take when my daughter Kirsty can model for me... the thing with Kirsty is that she gets quite bored with it all and goes into a dream land! this however is good for my style of shots as they are just what I want.
Subject of photo
Composition & Perspective
Use of camera, exposure & speed
Color & Lighting
Depth of field
Composition is good but I would not have cut off part of the head and maybe composed for a vertical rather than a horizontal
Focus looks very good
The use of the camera is good there is really no exposure info in the description.
Both look good
If you are using a speed of 1200 I am assuming that it indicates the ISO speed which is really too high to create a proper depth of field here because you want a softness in a portrait where the eyes are the sharpest point and the rest is just a touch soft.
I think you did a good job.
How to improve your photo
Try using window light to cut down on the harshness of the flash
Try composing as a vertical portrait for this particular pose or create a more casual pose for the horizontal view.
Try and have the subject turn her body a touch more to the left and have her tip her head ever so slightly toward the higher shoulder.
