Greetings from the Critique Club.

First impressions are of the reddish colour cast.

Technically the colour cast bothers me. I can see it in the top corners a bit but it has made the skin tones look unnatural. Other than this the shot is technically sound.

Artistically I'm not sure what look you were going for. I get the headgear but the shirt half on/half off look seems to be out of place. I think we may have connected with the shot some more if the model was looking at the camera rather than off to the side.

In summary an ok shot but the issue with the tones is what pushed this down into the sub-5's IMO.

Feel free to PM me if you have any queries.
Gerry

Rather a lot of noise in the background and too much red in the skin tomes for my taste.

Very nice (forgive my non-Canadian-ness) "tuke"?

Interesting subject but way overstaturated for me. Also, lighting is a bit flat.
