Much better....

Thank you again for all the input—some more blunt than others, but I made the post to learn so I don't mind blunt comments at all.

Today I met with a model I worked with a year before, who contacted me to shoot a new portfolio after knowing I got new camera gear, and did a photoshoot, during which I kept in mind some of your input.

Here is one of the photos from the shoot. After comparing my old portraits, I would venture to say I have improved. What do you guys think?

This is much better technically.

Unfortunately, the model doesn't know what to do with her hand or how to hold her body.  You are going to have to direct her.
