i like this image. I would have cropped it a bit more off the bottom and given yourself a bit more negative space just to really balance out the light and dark. Also, you might have wanted to use a different colour of "shroud". The white just isn't doing much for the look and feel of your image.

This has a lot of promise but isn't sharp enough.

The paint on your face really adds depth to the image. It feels like an 'egyptian' setting. I like the negative space.

I see where you wanted to go but I'm not sure that this was really the look you wanted.

I like the composition. I like the dark area on right side. If you'd leave your face without paint, it feels like it would be better. You look like "tried very hard" to get something going. Which is good, but normal skin color with the same setup, I think I would like it better. Maybe no colors but just the black tattoo!
