I really like this photo.....a lot! Not only does the gorgeous model have terrific eyes and lips, but the grain you used only increases the mystery and edginess of the shot......well done!

I'm not usually a fan of the grainy look but it really works for this photo. Nicely done.

Graininess actually adds an interesting layer to the texture.

I love the lighting, the crop and the expression on the models face. I would have preferred a little less grain, but an excellent shot none the less.

Pretty girl and a great look. Excellent composition too.
However, not low key enough for my taste, for this challenge, otherwise I'd be really happy with the tones.
Plus, the introduced digital noise is intrusive in my view, it isn't like film grain which often works with portraits.
Still, I do like the picture :)

Jen is gorgeous. the picture is just a little too grainy, probably cuase it was darkened in post. maybe have the original lighting much softer.

I very much like the simple graphic effect and the crop. The model is lovely. I wonder about the added noise though - but it does give it a nice poster-like effect. 7.

Is it supposed to be so grainy?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

this looks like it had a great start, I don't like the photoshop work you have done here. maybe just a black and white would have done or even a color image. The noise just takes away from the impact of the overall image by taking the eye away from the overall image and taking it to the skin.
