A little dark and fuzzy, and such is sleep, but this doesn't seem to say much.

Some constructive criticism: Firstly, the crop isn't doing you any favours. It's just too narrow to score highly. Secondly, the image doesn't do well as a black and white as the lighting is very flat. The black cloth is clumsily arranged, meaning you have a knee floating in mid air and half a hand has been cut off. Most importantly, I don't feel a connection with the subject - it's for these reasons you're scoring badly at the moment. I'm saying this to be helpful, not harsh - hope I have been.

Hope you had permission to take this shot. Could have used a slightly longer exposure.

Possibly a little underexposed - great idea though!
