Unfortunately, you got so close to the subject that everything on the body but the hand becomes an abstraction of humanity. You have to leave enough of the subject in to make a visual and emotional connection. At the very least the mouth should be here, preferably with smeared lipstick to add to the story.

I'm not saying that I don't like this, I do. The comments you received were all from pretty accomplished photographers, people who have been examining these things for a long time. You have pleased the artists, the abstract thinkers.

Unfortunately to please the crowd, you have to take your artistry and distill it into a club and beat them over the head with it. ;)
