Well done - I did something similar in an SP (this is much better than mine). Great tones, composition, and emotion.

I think they are particularly brutal in voting in free studies. If this photo were submitted to a typical member challenge, if it was "in your face" on topic (like unfortunately the voters demand) I think it would score in the high 6's.

It is fabulous! It reminds me a little of Joey Lawrence's work.

haha, ya it is just blurry from my crappy kit lens. I know the effect you are talking about though. It is sort of a weird haze or something across it. I hope to one day have some better gear. The print looks great however! Sharp and clear. I am blowing it up huge next time.

I apologize if you didn't use any Neat Image...it must just be at my end. For the record...I gave you a 6.

This is such an awesome photo! And its the kind of photo that usually makes the front page. I can't figure out why this one isn't. Man. I love it! Congratulations on perfection for this type of photo!

Nice composition. Good color, attractive model well posed. Beautiful mixture of textures, shapes and shades.

Excellent, my only very slight niggle is the dominance of the sole of her shoe ;)

Cool photo, looks like her door is a dead end though. I like how you are on the ground level with her. Great shot. 9

Nice photo, reminds me of a struggling musician. Maybe an addition of a guitar?

Good photo. Composed well. Engages the viewer and allows him to think. Nice job!

I'll give you an extra point for tucking her hair into her shirt.

I like the natural framing of the bricked in doorway. Her blue jeans have a nice POP yet they complement the steel blue of the cement blocks. This has a certain emotive quality to it as well.

Very interesting image in combination with the chosen title. Gives a lot of meaning and interest. Well done.

Personally I find her expression not too interesting, especially with the title. I feel having her looking out of the frame to the L may have helped balance the picture, as it is all I look at is her face and then her hand. Obviously depends on your story of course. Technically seems fine

I could see this as an album cover or promotion.
