::: Greetings from Critique Club :::

Hi, as requested, here is an indepth critique of your submission.

First Impression - the most important one:
Nice hair :-) I really like this shot. Nice detail in the hair and the angle makes it look wild. Almost like the hair is a flame.

Composition:
Works well. I love that the face is located at the very bottom of the photo. The hair leads my eye to it.

Subject:
clear, stands out well with nice detail.

Technical (Color, focus, and light):
Color: Nice warm tone to it. I'm sure the 500 watt (probably halogen) light source helped with that.
Focus is sharp, looks nice. I do see some details in the hair that looks like you may have over-sharpened in post or perhaps it's jpeg compression artifacts.
Light: nicely done.

To grow its vote?:
Nudity? Really, I'm not sure how to grow the vote on this one.

Summary:
Awesome shot, nice finish. Congrats.

Hope to see more from you soon,
Leroy

I really like this, I think if she was perfectly centered it would have worked better

the eyes... are captivating, wish it wasn't quite so dark so I could see more of the hair

And very well done -- one of the shots that stand out in this challenge.
Yeah.

Like the shot and high contrast. The warm light works well here. Thats a beautiful model with lovely hair. It does seem a little soft though. I wish her hair was tack sharp. 7

Nothing else to say really...Beatiful! One minor nitpick, since her left ear is out of view might have darkened the right one too.

Cool shot, the whites of the eyes have been overprocessed though. Way too white to be natural looking.
