    Good morning/afternoon Marija!

    I like it, but I don't think it is one of your best shots. I would not hesitate to post it to fb or flickr, if it were mine.

    I would. I might crop a little of the right off.

    I like it. As said you may have better shots, but that doesn't mean this one isn't good.

    For me FB and flickr are for my enjoyment and maybe get a little feedback. Whats the harm in putting it up. If after a while you feel it doesn't represent you to your liking, take it down

    I agree that it's a really nice photo and everything is done right, but that it just doesn't have the same kind of...I don't know, mystery? fantasy? of your recent portrait work.

    It's a very nice image. I agree with jc about cropping the right side, and I might also back off just a bit on the vignette, but then I would post it.

    I think the photo is good. You can make it even better (just my opinion) if you crop further so the model takes larger part of the photo.

    I think the image is symmetrical but off center, the flower looks funny tucked under her nose thus totally hiding her mouth, her hand is brighter and too prominent and the heavy vignette makes me feel like I am looking through a tunnel in a smoke-filled environment.
    Not nearly close to your usual stuff.
    As is, toss it.

    I don't think I care for the pale color and gray background (and I don't see much actual B&W there).

    As far as displaying it... it's not your best to show, but it's not terrible either; for purposes of social media and photo sharing sites I suppose it depends on who would see it.

    You might want to find out more about what's going on with Flickr before you continue to post there; supposedly Yahoo is streamlining(?) whatever isn't profitable and might be considering discontinuing Flickr. As far as Facebook and any photo sharing or social sites - look at the Terms so you know what you're agreeing to allow the website/company to do with your photos.

    I like it! I do think it needs a little color saturation or vibrance. The scene appears to be a happy moment and should show that. Instead, with the pale colors it feels like a gloomy rainy day.

    It's not as evocative as some of your other work. I wouldn't look at this and automatically say "This looks like Mmaria's work".
