A lovely painting, you have some nice contrasts.
The dark hair against the sky and the darks in the water below the figure. A nice loose style .
The only part that bothers me is the jetty, it detracts from the lovely moment you have captured.
Pulls the eye away from the face and dolphin. Would suggest it could be removed or softened and faded into the background,

I agree about softening the jetty. The red fingernails are so bright that my eye goes to them - then to the face - but right back to the dots of red??
