*Critique Club*

Per your request, here is you in depth critique from The Critique Club.
First impression is that I'm not really sure what the point is, and your lack of comments doesn't help me to figure out what your intent was for this photo, so my critique is based solely on personal opinion since I do not know what your intent was.
I cannot tell what part of the body this is, and why your hand is there. Is the jewel heart over the actual heart? The only purpose I see for the hand is that there are 2 little jewels on it, which kind of ties it in with the little jewels of the heart, but still, the hand seems to serve no purpose and doesn't add to the 'shapes' theme for the challenge either.
The focus seems soft, but I wonder if that's a biproduct of the neatimage? The skin just seems to have no texture whatsoever and appears quite odd.
The freckles on the skin distract slightly from the subject due to the similar shape, size and color.
This would have been more effective if the heart were symetrical. There are more beads on the left side than on the right side.
Lighting is very uneven. It's darker on the left side (shadow of hand) which gives the skin an unnatural green tint on the left side of the photo. Also, the light reflections on the nails distract from the jewels on the nails.
Overall, I think this fits the challenge properly, but leave me saying 'huh?'.

way too noisy, the cut-out in the top is cut off, the reflection is nice but is not taken advantage of. The bottom shows what I am only guessing is a reflection of the wall and ceiling. The bridge is just seen (or some weird white square).

Violins are beautiful instruments. But I feel this photo doesn't do much to capture that.

However, I am also guessing from the noise that this might have been a P&S. And sometimes it is very hard to transcripe an idea to film.

Please don't be discouraged by my comment....it is meant to be constructive. Feel free to PM me.

Flesh is very yellow, love the concept, might stand out more in b & w. DOF or focus kind of throws it off a little. Nice title.

The imperfections around the cuticles of the polish are distracting (but could be cleaned up with PS, if editing were allowed!) The left side of the photo seems to have a yellowish tint, which I don't love. Cool idea, though! Might be interesting if we could see the shape of the body part where the heart is-- looks like maybe an arm?
