    I like it, kinda sepia, but not, if that make sense. The subject looks "involved",

    I like the crop on this. For some reason I want to say that it goes w/ the hair & the attitude/expression.

    That's a self-portrait, isn't it?
    Your work with the light fascinates me. I would think (if this were my photo) "Hey, overexposed! Blooper" but with your photo I think it is style - and one that I like very much for it so nicely brings out the (your?) eyes. Very well done!

    uhh... I can't get past the overexposure, especially with a black background. Lighting's pretty flat too.

    Great framing and presentation!

    Yeah the flash or whatever lighting you used seriously needs to be lower, but other than that I think it's a pretty good shot. Very good cropping.

    I am not sure what you were going for here, but to me the picture looks like it would make a very good picture for some one wants to present themselves to the public in some form of profession (must be the glasses and the serious look), which is why the overexposure doesn't work for me. The look of the model and the crop is very good.

    Here I thought this was purposely high-key. I like it personally.

    Too overexposed. One eyebrow is about missing. Tone it down a little and it would be a good pose.

    The overexposure doesn't work for me. I like highkey images but this one isn't really working I think because it's too yellow in the high notes, not white.

    Nice composition and crop.

    It depends on what you were going for - if it was this high-key appearance, I would suggest still doing something to define the eye areas some and it would work better, in my opinion...
