The position of the model is incredible, due to the fact that it almost looks inhuman in that very few people could stand like that for very long- in such an unnatural pose. The pose lends its beauty to balance the horizontal composition within the square.

The color scheme is pretty well done, the yellow is too bright in the background and almost not the right color of yellow.

The concept itself is creative, and the way you went about it was different. I have a criticism about the way you did it though: the circular bokeh in the background breaks the purposeful making of bokeh inside the camera, only a cheap camera would produce a bokeh that perfectly circular and hard edged, and it looks placed there, it also has banding in it. To improve the banding you should do several things: work in a format that condenses less than a jpeg, like a 16 bitt tiff. You should add noise or texture to match the roughness of the ground to it, not necessarily 100% as rough, but enough to soften the glaring faux bokeh.
