And now for something completely different (yet basically the same).

Same picture, original background, warmed up skin tones with a drastic crop.
Topped off with a little diffuse glow, grain and a basic frame.

not crazt about the blur but I really like close crops like that -- and it leaves a little breathing room for the subject as well---nicely done

the blur and grain were a what the heck! why not give it a try? type of moment.

to my way of thinking (and without a map and compass not necessarily the right way) the model's posture indicated that a frame may not be a bad thing. She seemed to be on the edge of her chair anticipating some event or person.

The frame seems to relax the pose a bit and let's the viewer (myself that is) enjoy even more the youthful bloom of an attractive golden girl type of model.

Just to round out the "looks", here's the classic soft northen light portrait (sort of). Oh, and I smoothed out her right shoulder a bit as she was looking a bit hunched.

woaa! saturation issues! dont be afraid to move that light around, people alwyas throw the light at head level and off to toe side, this causes harsh shadows. pu your key light about 10 feet in the air and pont it doen, it will keep the shadows under her chin and nose. word, looks good though
