Wonderful shot, you can read the emotion in her face.

Critique Club Request by Photographer:
Initial: This is very expressive.
Composition: Very well done.. my eyes stay right with the woman's closed eyes. It is a portrait about her because the man's face is away from view. The close up is important for the feeling of intimacy, however, the down side of it is that it cuts her arm off to create a free floating hand that sorta comes out of nowhere. The tilt of their heads expresses movement.
Quality: Tones and details are great. The lighting is even for the most part, however the woman's skin is a bit shiny - but that could be a makeup issue... Have the model blot with powder during a long shoot.
There are no obtrusive shadows, which is excellent.
All in all, this is a very well done photograph. It is not a portrait in the classic sense of the word (I don't think), but apparently that is okay.
The only thing I would change is her shiny skin, and somehow the position of her arm... although that would be the lesser of the two that I would pick on, since her hand is in such a loving embrace.

This is one of my favorite photos out of those I have seen here. It's simplistic and powerful. I like the woman's face too, very expressive.

Wow, il y a plein de tendresse et d'émotion qui se dégage de cette photo! Je me demande à quoi elle rêve? Votre modèle: une beauté simple sans artifice on est loin des stéréotypes. Bravo vous êtes un bon photographe!
d'une admiratrice.... (sans prétention)

Nice lighting with good detail in the shadows. It looks a little soft to me but you may have intended it.
