    I think it's a good photo of the subject, but I don't like the treatment. The close crop diminishes the feeling of being alone and helpless. I also have an issue with 'interesting' angles; it's garish and while it may attract attention, it hurts the lasting appeal of the photo. I'd like to see the same pose and POV, with a horizontal orientation and the subjects face at the top-left thirds point.

    Can others edit my Photos:

    While rules were made to be broken. I can't say the use of a wide angle lens, in this case, works at all. The models facial features are stretched out which is unflattering. The lighting is very harsh and creates indecorous shadows around the eyes.

    I think this one would work much better if the light on her face wasn't so harsh.

    I like the picture and her expression, but since there so little color in the picture, I think it would work better as a black and white.
