This is a perfect "pastiche" of Leonardo da Vinci´s work (especially reminiscent of his "Madonna of the rocks"). You have synthesized all the key elements of his art and this painting looks as if it could have been painted by one of his followers/apprentices (one of his better ones, that is). The only hint I can give you, on this otherwise perfect piece, is that it could use some more "sfumato"...On an ending note I have to state that her face/head is absolutely beautifully rendered with the "soul" shining through in the da Vinci mode!
