    The arm business is confusing.. i dunno if she's holding her breast or the outside of the right arm.

    Also the balance is a bit off with respect to contrast..

    but i like the image overall

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Patterns, such as the linear shadows in your image, destroy form.

    Avoiding frontal compositions and lighting emphasize form.

    You sort of have a conflict going on here. I like the shadow patterns, but your angle of view from above competes with the shadow patterns and becomes confusing. Try this shot without the pattern, or try the pattern from a more frontal angle.

    i think its quite interesting ... i think the shadows in her face add to the overall photo ... without the shadows it would be less interesting to me :D

    The skin tone and emotion of the subject is great. I will have to say that her arms get a bit confusing for the eye. Don't throw it out.

    Thanks again everyone. :) I wish it wasn't so "muddy." But I do like the emotion aspect. I am going to play with shadows a little more and I will keep your tips in mind.
