For me the blurred background, due to you opening up to f/2, distracts from a wonderful and well captured model. Please don't take offence as this is just my personal opinion

This is a beautiful, moody, study. Really excellent imo. The girl, and her pose and presence, is so magnificent that it seems right to place the peripheral scene out of sharp focus.

Love the crispness in the foreground and the natural pose. Quite right to lose the background. If anything try cropping a little tighter so there is not as much background. Give it a go. All in all a great atmospheric shot.

A wonderfully professional environmental portrait.
