I really like the wings, maybe even more if they were longer. The faces are good, something about them is older than the body though
Although technically, it's a skillfully done piece, there are too many issues here that are contradictory. Why is she leaning over a rock in the middle of the water, with the back of her robe pulled up (or non-existant) revealing a bare backside? It seems like a cheap glimpse of nudity for no reason. Nudity is fine, but there has to be some rationale for it. Perhaps more importantly, although the body is a beautifully rendered interpretation of a young woman, the face is old, hard and bitter, with thin, pinched lips. There's too much of an anomaly here.
Karl the shading is excellent! The shine on her skin is beautiful. I congratulate you on having such marvellous talent!
