My first reaction was related to the size of the picture: Is it because of the settings of my PC, I don't know, but its small size makes it difficult to analyse the details.
The pose is wonderful and very aesthetic, IMHO.
I would suggest using a slightly larger crop no to crop the red top of the belt on the left, and a larger aperture to have a shallow DOF to avoid showing the details of the wall & trees behind.
Thanks for sharing.
