Great image, I like everything from the girl's posture her clothing style. The picture tells a story. It's unfortunate that it was so sunny out and the subject is pretty underexposed, while the background is overexposed. I've posted a workshop to show one way to help fix a little bit of this.

You surely took advantage of the high and low values.
Personnaly base on an artistic point of view, I must admit, that I find the workshop interesting, but I find that the original shot render more smooth tone and realistic view.
White in the shadow, shouldn't render white....but more of a light grey, such as shown in the original, so the face should be even darker, and so on.
More or less a question of style. I think you've done a fantastic job, and your shot is quite a nice example as how high contrast scene should be treated.

Lovely image, B/W an excellent choice here. Nice story to the picture and the contrast in the subject is good. I quite like the overexposed background, it looks like a painted backcloth on a stage. Well captured.

very nice black and white portrait. Perfect composition, point of view and DOF with an interesting treeline background. Nice tones and lighting. A little note though might be helpful.
