This is Janice again...

Curious how the dpchallenge community takes this kind of shot. Maybe I overdid the high key-ness of this shot?

Greetings from the Critique Club!

WOW! What a shot. Certainly makes me look twice, that's for sure. The eyes are amazing!

But, one of the other first things that jumped out at me were the hands. They don't look right for some reason. I think it's the position, it just doesn't look natural to me overall. The way that one set of fingers is curled and the other set is extended just seems a bit off to me for some reason. And the shadow caused by the extended hand are also a bit distracting to me, just a bit.

Other than that, this is a really amazing shot and very well done. I love the composition of it and the look in her eyes is truely wonderful.

I hope my comments help and good luck in future challenges.

agreed, I think people saw the "blown" section on the left hand and stopped thinking. specifically about how it actually makes the picture work better and seamlessly blend in with the negative space. should have been top 10 at the very least.

Love the idea of the wintry look, like the witch from the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. This is one of my highest rated pics. Nice shot.

leaving blank space on the side is almost never a good idea, I don't care how fashionable it is at dpc. But otherwise this is a fun, dramatic shot.

Nice! She looks like a porcelain doll! The tones are great! Love the eyes, but in a little critique in my opinion, the light is a bit harsh in her right hand and sleeve... Anyway,I like it very much! I am giving you an 8 :) good luck
