This is yet another photo of my wife, who is a cellist. When she was younger, her parents gave her this book, which is about a young female cellist.

Beautiful shot...love the soft focus, but I personally feel it would be better without the brown border. 9

I like the feeling of movement. Not quite sure about the colourisation - I think I'd maybe have gone a little lighter? Also, I'm not keen on the border. A simple single pixel of colour and then 10px of black would have worked better I think.

This is very beautiful photo. I love the feeling of movement in your shot. The warm golden colours add to the almost romantic feel of the whole image. Too bad you coudn't edit out the speck in the middle of blackness and the spot above her head (not your fault, I hate the rules too). I do not like the border as IMO it breaks the feeling of movement and makes it squared off. If you insist on border, maybe just a simple thin white one would have been better. Otherwise really nice image.

I love it how you captured the emotion on the face in combination with the motion blur of the performance itself. I have my doubts about the color and the border, but the capture of this combination and the composition is good enough to grant it a 10. :)

I like the picture very much. The tone of the shot is very well done.

moody shot! I like the softness to it & the sepia colour

I'm not sure the colors lend anything to the picture.

The border is annoying, but I really like how her face is still and calm while everything else is kinetic. 8

Beautiful. Love the blurred movement capture and the extensive darkness. A little too orange is my only negative.

This is nice work... I think this would have made a lovely vertical with more of your model composed in the frame... excellent work...

This would make a very intesting book cover. consider a crop tighter to the face.

Very nice composition here. I would of like the shot a bit lower or maybe more from the front. Still I like this. Kool lighting and excellent moody shot.
