Yes I like this much better - Cleaner shape and my focus goes straight to the model and those interesting lines. very nice

Not exactly a "light" on white, but effective. Interesting how the lit part of the face is to the outside of the photo. I think it's a good choice, I've been imagining it with the light side to the inside (negative space to the left) and it looks less powerful, less graphic. ~8

Cool, I love your lighting. However I think you will get hammered because it says "mainly light colors" on white - lots of black in here. Anyway: cool shot!

Pros: Lots of black, however the fac is the focus and hence it meets the challenge nicely, subject well done too
Cons: perspective of the shot is somewhat bland
Score: 7

pointless off-centeredness detracts from an otherwise very well planned and executed shot. Composition must be felt, not determined by fashions.

Very nice! Great blue eye, and I love the title with the lines drawn on face. Good job.

Sorry, but this subject is not light enough to meet the challenge for me.

nice idea but doesn't meet challenge - this is more black on white or shadows on white
