First, I'm sure you've heard this a dozen times already, but it bears repeating...use the maximum 640 on the long side. You lose impact and details with a smaller size. On the positive end I guess, you get lots of comments. :D As a photo I really like what you've done in post-processing this. Great tonal range for a B/W - you've covered the range completely without blowing it out or losing details in the shadows. The focus on her face has a soft quality to it in a good way. Overall, nicely done. Just show it off a bit more. :) Good luck in the challenge.

Doesn't feel cropped quite right for me ... would like more on the left and less on the right of your subject. Nice tones, though ... 7

why so small? use the size allowance to your advantage to really show detail in your photo ...

Image size is small. We lose out on the womans face as a result. As it is she seems very pale. No texture in her features. Crop out the right and top to draw the focus on her instead of the background.
