They say, you can still see a light in the window from which she fell, and the ghost of her bodyguard who suffered a similar fate for not protecting her, still haunts the tower from which he was thrown.
It all happened on the night of a full moon...

Oh, man. . . don't you just hate it when that ghost corpse stuff happens?

Great composition. A really iconic kind of vignette. Would work well as a book cover with a title over it or whatnot.

Only thing I would suggest is that you be mindful of it flattening on you. The thin line to the side of the tower is thin and sharp as if they were flat faces. But from the shadow it looks like they're meant to be rounded. If you're doing rounded, you may want to broaden your highlight or have it hit farther away from the edge. (remembering our earliest lessons to draw a cylinder, how the lighting worked.) Also you might want to also roll the lighting in on the landscape as well. But it's all dealing with something that can be managed by strategic lighting as if coming from the moon.

Anyway, it's really got that morbid, ghostly kind of vibe alright. And no, I ain't staying the night. Even if they have a telephone and a juke box.

Go Jack! Scare the beejeezus out of us!

Very eerie - and yes, I spotted the ghost/guard. :)
