This is a beautiful picture. The balance between the light of the skin on your face and hands is complimented by the complete darkness in front and behind you. The hair brushing the shoulder is also a nice touch, loosening up the edges so that it doesn't seem so staged and is more natural.
It also broadly follows the thirds rule, in this case the darkness taking up the final third of the opicture.
It evokes a calmness when viewing it that many photos do not.
If I had to be hyper-critical, I would think about cropping the photo at the bottom, taking out everything that is below the lowest part of your hair. This may make the picture, in my opinion, even more powerful, as there is nothing left in the picture to distract the observer from your quiet expression.
Either way though, it is a great picture.
