She's lovely At!
Pretty bold processing choices and I know our tastes differ in this area so I'll try to remove my bias. This works for me overall. Eyes are sharp and exposure is good. Feels dreamy.
For me the main nit (easily fixed) is the vibrancy of the dress which competes with your daughter's beauty...so I'd tone down the saturation in that area.
Hope that may help

I'm not big on the processing either, but my wife wanted BOLD, dreamy feel, like most dance recital portraits. I will look into toning down the saturation of the dress. Thanks.

Excellent. I agree totally with Marko's comment and if this is cropped I would give the top of her head just a smidge more room... (my taste, may not be yours).

With those striking features you are going to have to keep an eye on the boys that start hanging around in the next few years. ;P Good luck!
