I like it. It looks more stylish and neat. The longer length looked too long grown-out.
I've cut my hair short (chin length bob) having almost 18" cut off at a whack. I did regret losing my length, but it grows back quickly AND I certainly appreciated the shorter hair for the summer. Get that weight/heat OFF my neck!
I had very long hair at one point (to hips) and then cut it to the shoulder, eventually to a short bob kind of like Winona Ryder's short look. I never regretted it! It was easy and always looked fresh.
As for your question - I've had some very long hair for years and always loved it. Every time I went in for a "trim" it came out shorter than I wanted, so I would go several several months at a time without getting it cut.
This past December I finally decided to get it cut before our Christmas party at work. It was down to about the middle of my back. I told her I wanted a good bit off, but wanted it to sit about where my shoulder blades were.
I came out with hair that didn't even touch my shoulders! There's a very long winded upset post around here somewhere I'd rather not hash up though
Its been almost six months now and my hair is STILL shorter than I want it to be. But I've never been the type of person that could pull of shorter hair in a flattering way. I really like yours!

Looks great!!! I cut mine recently,though people say you can't tell. I had about 8 inches cut off in layers. My hair was down past my butt.......
But I'm too chicken to go any shorter, though yours looks really cute!
