    Woah. This one really shouts "tragic." I think the catch lights at the bottom of the eyes really helps communicate this.

    I think your title says it all. I'm liking the tones as well. I kind of wish the light in the background wasn't making that shape and was more even. (although I still think it looks good coming from a single light source if that makes sense)
    Also, I'm wondering if a little bit more of a crop from the top and left would help?

    I agree the crop is a bit strange although i like the empty space.
    The plan was to make a compilation with a second low-body picture but i didn't like the way this turned out.

    Tnx for the comments.

    I LOVE this photograph, although it would have been way way better if it didn't cut off :(

    tech - Beautiful tones, dof and sharpness.
    emotion - :thumbup: :thumbup:

    This is the kind of shot I'd give prominence to the subject (probably in a vertical crop), coz there are more details to be read.

    Thanks again everyone. I'm going to try some different crops and see what works.

    A second shot from this series. I like the first one better to be honest because it it's less soft and has more emotion.

    YES I like the first one BETTER because you can see the pain (so to speak) in her eyes and face where here you dont see her face much at all...
