Shading transitions seem to be well done. Elsewhere dodging is overdone. Her face has lost its shape, eyes too white and flat. Unless that's what you intended, then ignore me . . .

It is an improvement for sure. To take it up a notch, it does need more contrast, which will take away the flatness "lurch" referred to.

Your increased contrast looks much better to my amateur eye. Her chest is a little blotchy.

I see some blotchiness on the upper part of the cheek in shadow as well as the chin that's in shadow. Also a bit in chest as noted by Lurch. Nice otherwise.
