I really like the composition of this photo.
The focus is nice and crisp except for the movement of the hands which gives a bit of motion to the scene.
I'd prefer less exposure for the table top. It would be nice to see the grain of the wood.

You've framed this scene very nicely, and captured the "decisive moment" in this domestic scene. I can feel the weight she's applying, and the slight motion blur on the hands makes the scene dynamic. I do wish her face was a little sharper, though. Also, the table top is a little blown out, and there seems to be loss of detail in the shadows (probably just my monitor). All in all, though, excellent shot.
