Great capture. Really emotive. The B/W works well and the expression is priceless.

I don't see how this shot got 8 ones. Must be the cigarette thing.

No accounting for taste.

Overall I like this. Would be better if the left middle finger were not in line with her nostril!

Good picture but the table is distracting. I don't know the movie but that's OK. I wish you would of cropped right above the table top leaving the reflections. I copied and pasted in PS and done the crop and it looked great. Anyway still a good picture. 7 [cropped off table would of been 8 or 9]

Nice exposure and composition, fits into the movie theme nicely. Low key effect nicely done. Great job.

Bad habits! :)
Great portrait. The lighting and toning is also very good. I like it how she looks away, like she means to say 'Mind your own business". Without the table and ashtray it would be dull.

I like how the model blends in with the background, would have loved to see grey smoke in the darkest areas though

Nice shot. Great tones, I really like the lighting. Good composition. Awesome model. I find a really nice balance between the model and the negative space to the right.

Great image with excellent lighting. I think it might look a bit better with the table edge cropped out, leaving the ashtray at the bottom of the image, but that's just a nitpick of a really nice shot.
