Terrific. A holy icon to be hung in the heart of a home.

This is one of the images that took my breath away! Just the right amount of light to see her eyes and outline. The perfect pose to be dramatic and oh so elegant!

I would have liked the face turned just a tad more this way. The lighting on the upper body is so wonderful, but the highlight on the face is harsh and makes the eye look a little odd. Maybe just a tiny tad of fill light on the front of the face?

Title is very nice. For me the balance between face and chest is not working. I love the face, love the hands . . . wish she'd been wearing something different so I didn't have such an expanse of shoulder/chest. What bothers me is that I find I have to stop and figure out what this is every time I view it - the initial impression is just of a big, amorphous blob in the center. Gave it a 7 as I do like so much about it. Voted days ago . . . back to comment on a few.

This is what I imagined low key would look light. Actually, it's better because I'm loving that it includes a hint of dark colour swell. One of my favourites.
