Hehe, nice oldschool feeling, and you have definitely achieved the genuine TR atmosphere with all the objects on the pic.
Lara is fit, has nice boobs as always, strong arm and the chic red shades.
Keep it up!

I like her pose. You did a great job with the dynamics of the pose and the shape of the body with that perspective. And the lighting from the flare works really well as well (especially when its reflected on her shades). However, the level of rendering seems kind of unfinished. I can understand the darkness of some of the areas (like the rocks and the extended leg) but it gets really flat and heavy, especially on the boot of her extended leg (looks like a cut out). Some more development of the form of the rocks and her legs to show subtle lighting and form would've helped. The forced downward perspective is nice though, and I'd say her arms are the best part (particularly the left one; I love how you were able to capture the muscle formation of her arm with the reflected light from the flare). Overall, there's a lot going for this piece. Keep it up. Nice job.

Palette and style are a really solid recall to the original.

that left arm of hers could throw a punch

I like it a lot. That left arm is definitely the standout part of the piece, based solely on the amount of detail. If I was to critique anything, I'd suggest trying to bring up the level of detail in the rest of the image to match it, but then the arm would lose the honor of being special. Tough choice.

But composition-ally speaking, it's a great overall shot. the eye is instantly drawn to Lara, and then the secondary flare, which is what I think you intended. She's got a great silhouette, and you captured weight and balance in her pose.
