interesting concept and pretty good lighting. maybe just a slightly tighter crop, but its still a good photo. good work

Your focus should be on her touching her belly but your lighting causes the eye to focus on her breast. (Plus it's a little washed out) I think the photo could be greatly inproved by adjusting the lighting to cause the breast to be secondary and not so obvious.

I think the right side of the shot needs more light. The harsh lighting to the left lowers my mood when I look at the shot & I generally think of impending motherhood as a mood lifter...Just my opinion...

I really like this one. Love the colours and contrast. I somehow do feel uncomfortable with how it's cropped from her neck Makes me wonder if this shot would have worked better with may be a wee bit of her chin. Because of the positioning of her shoulders, it does create the look of a chicken from the frozen counter. That's what I am uncomfortable with. But as I said before, I think it's a great shot.

Not sure if I like this photo or not.
Has simple and artistic touch to it but the subject feels a bit distant.

The wide angle of this shot is not very flattering for your model. This makes it look like she has a tiny neck/head and huge thighs.. I hope you have some more photos to cherrish from her pregnancy, it's a special time for all.. 6

nice angle and symmetry, I like how the shoulders lined up perfectly

This is a great shot. It is very different from the typical pregnant shot. The composition is great and it handles the centered position with ease.

Great photo! A bit shocking and a bizzar look at the challenge of touch but well executed. Color, sharpness and border all well done. I like how the wide angle adds to the bizzar nature of the photo and the harsh side lighting adds to the shock factor. 8

Everything in this photo draws my eyes away from the life. The choice of chair, the distracting shadows, the starkness of the bare breasts, the seeming discomfort in the shoulders, the decapitated mother, the hands covering too much. Ack, life is the LAST thing I thnk in this photo; sorry. 5

Really unflattering lighting. I like the composition though.
