I suggest that you tone-down the sword texture. It’s too bright.
But most importantly, work carefully on the keylight of the face of the geisha. She’s the star of this show, and what we want to see is her expression, a hint of her emotion, to connect with her as a person.
(Ahh, keep it clean, gentlemen…)
If you can focus our attention on this character, and convey her emotions while she is proferring this sword to (whom?), you can make a very powerful statement.
Consider, however, if you want that large fob sitting down in front of her eyes like that. It’s quite large and it’s precisely in our center-of-view. It does serve as a shade (well it would, if it cast a proper shadow), so it may need to stay there, but I’d suggest that it be modified somehow because right now I think it detracts. You could address this issue either by altering it, or by strengthening its role in the picture.
I’m intrigued. I like it very much.
