It's interesting to compare the two shots. I prefer the lighting in this one. The previous one I thought was too uniformly dark, whereas this one is a little more chiaroscuro, with a more pleasing interplay between light and shadow.
However, I think I prefer her looking off to her left in the previous shot. But I prefer the position of her left hand in this one. It looks more relaxed. So altogether I'd say it's an improvement, with one minor quibble.
