the sidelighting is too harsh -- it makes the subject blend into the background.

it looks like she's expecting someone to come around the corner... someone's in for a SHOCK! maybe a little over-exposed on the left side.. the lines top and left are distracting to me as well.

I like the pose and the composition, but the highlights are just too blown out. If she was looking the other way and the exposure was for her face, that might be more effective.

Best of luck, mom. Light is a little too strong. A softer light with her looking into it would have been more pensive. She looks as if she is turning away from the harsh light.

The title is a little confusing (though that has no effect on your score1). Is she at the doorway expecting her mother, or is she an expectant mother?? Well, no matter - I love the look of this beautiful black and white. The composition is wonderful - the right side "fades to black" and the left side highlights are kind of "blown out" so that the details fade into nothingness, and all of this works together to give the shot good balance, as well as a sense of mystery - (where is she, what is she thinking, why is she dressed in a formal looking dress??) This shot is intriguing in many respects, and I find it very visually appealing. My only regret with it - that there isn't a little bit more light on her face. 9

I like the high key nature of this shot...

There is to much light on the left of the photo which is masking the model's right arm.

very moody, nice study of the woman. I like the contrast of the dark and light in this image. 8
