    Is this with on camera flash?
    Very harsh lighting on the face...
    Also I think the crop is far too tight...
    Just my opinion, though...feel free to disagree.

    Hate to bring you down, but I agree with Sideburn on the crop. The defining part of the face is pushed to the edge.

    I think you got something there with the expression, but it could be much better imo.

    All in the eye of the viewer then. Can you tell us a bit more about why you like it then?

    From my perspective due to the tight crop I can't even understand the environment she is in (I am assuming it is a she). Did she just get out of a pool or was she in the rain? Or maybe out of the bath? I don't know. I could even take a stab that her hair is really really greasy (I doubt that is the case but...)

    It's unavailable now, but I saw it before...

    I am a fan of tight crops as well, but I think that crop was just a little TOO tight. The lighting was also harsh. But the idea was great. I loved the expression on her face, you caught her really having a good time!!
