      A very powerful image. The tones and softness are great

      This is a photograph that evokes many different feelings. One that can be used to tell stories. I love the softness to it, but I'm not sure if she's afraid of something. Very, very cool.

      This photograph is nice. The subject is great, i love the angle and the lighting on the face. The crop is nice but i think it would of shown more neck and i feel as tho it should be in focus. I think if you did that it would be 10 times better. Also theres a small glare to the top left of the photo perhaps get rid of that.

      the shot even looks like the subject is about to "snap out of it".
      interesting shot!

      I agree with Jbc... it is a very interesting shot. It has the aura of those photos of silent movies in the 1920´s... well done!

      Really awesome. Very similar to some of my recent ones, that I haven't uploaded yet. I actually just took one with the exact same angle on the face, and even tears in the eyes of mine, and I concluded, on mine and again on yours, that it is just a little bit too much underneath the face, too distanced from the subject. And makes the woman an object, but the yes are too distant to connect with it. She feels distant.

      Perfect color on the face, I love love the shapes in the background. Good work.

      Not really attracted to the shot, I am perplexed to say What is she looking at? Good B/W tone but lack of focus does not equate to softness!

      the mood is good. Fab lighting, contrast, compo + expression. I like how it is not extremely sharp, like there is some "curtain" making the face softer. I was going to give you 10, but i realized my eyes are going all the time to the up left corner, i would make it all black.

      The slightly blue tone of the B&W is ideal, and I'm drawn to the slightly soft focus effect the shot has. But the lop-sided composition (a blank to the left) and the fact that the object of his stare is lopped off the top puts me off a bit. Mind, I was looking at four portraits int he V&A in London yesterday taken by a very eminent portrait photographer (David Bailey, i think), three of which had the tops of the heads lopped off..so there you are. It also has rather limited DoF.

      So, my 'umble opinion

      Has an old movie feel to it. I don't like the overly soft glow and the detail in the upper left distracts.

      I like the expression of the face and the composition - very dramatically, indeed an old movie feeling

      excellent composition, love the way this face is in the bottom of the picture and you captured the expression very well too! However it is real pitty that this picture is not sharp. I also think it would improve when the line in the background would be really horizontal.

      Oh I agree with the nayrde, and maybe suggest making just that light spot on the upper left the same color as the black surrounding it.

      this is a very interesting picture.. I definately would have given you a higher score but I really dislike the off focus on this image. The framing is excellent with the face off to the right and the shadows add alot to the image. I disagree with the comments above with the white on the left being distracting.. i think it works well with the picture.

      It is really outstanding - one of the best I have seen.
      It reminds me of an Orson Welles movie too, but even more of La Passion de Jeanne d'Arc by Carl Th. Dreyer
