I'd add a light on the backdrop I don't think the double shadow works well
and it's like the subject is surrounded by shadow. I'm fond of unusual
lighting being done on kids (in this case from below) but am not a fan of
two main lights.
I'm got getting red but am seeing just a touch of yellow maybe.

I think its an arresting shot. I don't mind it light but perhaps I'd jack up
the contrast a tad; and sharpen at the size you're at.
It kind of looks un unsharpened.

Its great to see medium format digital photography being practiced.
We DO feel like we are looking at much more information as we do in film.
It's in a print that we'd see I think that acreage counts both in digital as
in film. An 11x14 or bigger I think print.
The price point of the CFV back for regular Hassy is cheaper than the 8
grand first CANON camera I guess. But most of the hack wedding photographers
and other commercial photographers have already traded in their Hassy's for
CANONS. I guess the price point needs to jump a bit close to what people are
paying for D3's and whatever the Canon full frames are called and priced at
before people start buying back their Hassy gear and the price goes up again
and both people and whoever owns Hassy are sorry to have let the stuff go.
I've hung on to mine.
And see the light at the end of the tunnel as to using them a lot more
