Love the composition. At the same time, your wife is a lovely woman and this pose, does not show that off as well as it could. The lower hand position twists her arm adding a less attractive shadow. The upper hand should be positioned sideways. Her head should tilt in. It might be better if you could lower the back shoulder (have her stand on something?) and turn her hips toward the fence. That is a lot of setup to ask a wife, vs. a model, but the end result might be she'll like the picture better and be a more willing model in the future.

Thanks Daniel for the critique, I took that photo after 2:30 hours drive to Camp Satiago, in Salinas, Puerto Rico a National Guard army base and while waiting to see our oldest son we took few photos, so actually if you can see in the photo my wife was tired, however she said that next time she will follow your recomendations. Here is better picture of her.
