I don't know if the graininess and flattened shadows in the skin tones are totally working for me. It looks more like a compression artifact than an aesthetic choice, somehow... I feel like the obvious thing to do is bring her out of the background, so she's alive, while the background is flattened and dead, but hardening the shadows does the opposite, so that she becomes just a piece of scenery like the tire and the bike. Which says something, I guess, but if I were going to go that way I might push it even harder so that she becomes extremely abstracted and is boiled down to just shapes and lines.
