I think details will make it completely different. The shapes need lots of work. For example the trees and their branches look like cliffs and stones. They need to be more delicate. It seems you just focused on her face, and ignored other parts.
It's kind of the purpose, to bring attention to the character.

The light is still too much which ruins the composition. Her clothes is flat, and needs more wimples. In my opinion, it would be better if there was a kind of difference between dots on the skirt and flowers around the girl. I mean not just by colors, but forms and shapes.

I know you wanted to bring attention to the character, and you did it somehow, but still it needs refinements.It should be believable for the viewers. Proportions aren't correct, and blurring the space to bring attention to the character doesn't help I guess.

yes the nose is spot on. and i like what you did with the leaves. The different colours add depth and even movement. Much better, I didnt even notice the leaves in the original even though they were there. They were just too flat and bland. Now I can see the effect the change has made maybe do something similar for the greenery on the ground

It is a beautiful painting and you have done a great job. It is so engaging and there is something about the eyes in particular that keeps pulling me in. The blurred background works really well highlighting the main character and the focal point. A great selection of subtle colours brings the overall composition to the feeling of gentle balance and harmony.

Values seem to be very dark (ie trees on left) or light (sunlight on right) with not much change in between. Maybe converting it to a grayscale image would show even better where some changes could be made.

Composition isn't bad, but perhaps using the rule of thirds to place the subject would improve it. This would entail moving the woman to the right or left so she stood along a vertical line 1/3 in from either side.

For me, the lack of substance in the foliage draws my eyes and makes me look everywhere but at the subject.

One of the greatest benefits of digital art is the ability of the artist to make non-destructive changes until they are satisfied.
