This could have been a lovely portrait, but for me the cigarette and smoke killed it.

For me, the cigarette and the smoke makes a good shot an even better shot... well done!

I am perplexed by the cropping. The top of the picture has 'negative space' while the model's arm and posterior are cropped off. I found the smoke to be distracting only to the point that it looked 'un-natural'. I will add the lighting is very good and the 'peek-a-boo' makes this look very candid.
