Good on all point : mack-up, composition and expressiveness and idea, and use of shallow d.o.f . Just one negative point : it lacks definition in the darker parts, it is solid black and I feel it would have been more impressive with just-on-the-verge-of darkness blacks, when you feel presence of details more than you actually see them. Well may be you have some more black deepness definition in the original file ; jpg always do some damage here, I have observed that frequently.
