Thanks again Pablo. Quite a few people have looked at this one. They must be 
all keeping their comments to themselves ;-)
Here is another photograph, with maybe a little more interest.

Hi Geoff,

this portrait is outstanding... exposure is spot on as it seems to be all
you did in PS. 
one thing I'm not sure of is framing, maybe going a bit backwards, or for a
35 lens, would mean letting us see her hands which is usually that really
adds something else about the portrayed subject and I'd bet this wonder
woman had that "something else" I'm talking of.

I wonder what or rather why you used the dodging tool... that's a tool I
could never get tamed to it, or maybe it's me that I should've tamed the
tool instead ?
I find it not only hard to use but destructive, you seem to be mastered a
dodging tool course.
