Im not sure how well a high key image (or at least my interpretation) will go down in a challenge, but I want to start entering on a semi-regular basis. I've seen the improvements entering challenges can have on a persons photography, and god knows I need it.

Personally I love this image as it represents somewhat of a milestone for me, a picture that im proud of. I know its not technically perfect, but thats exactly why im here- to hear what others think and use those critiques to improve.

Be harsh, be nice. As long as it helps me improve then either way is great with me.

Post Challenge:
I had hoped it could only go up from my first score, and luckily it did! Im entirely unimaginative with titles, but should have probably made it clear somehow that 'Tone' is my girlfriends name (with the Norwegian pronunciation).

Thanks for the comments everyone, it's exactly what I need!

Reminds me of a 60's album cover for some reason! I like the high key look.

Needs some deeper depth of field, I think. The nose and lips being out of focus doesn't work with me.

Going for high pass, you have managed to loose all the details in her lips. more contrast on the lips would have been a showstopping shot

i think it might be a little too contrasty
