The dark - light progression is good, but the glare (and dirtiness of the glass)to the right of her face impedes the soft flow of the image. Realizing this is a basic editing challenge this is well done. This captures the sadness of saying goodbye very well - as though the darkness will overtake her as the train proceeds from the station.

Nice sombre moody shot. B&W suits it well.

She looks very pretty, you will score better with a title.

How about: "Longing" She appears to be either longing to be out participating in, or hiding from whatever she is looking at. Very nice window lighting.

Very creative lighting. I would have like to have seen just a bit more face.

You have articulated a sense of yearning, of wistfulness perhaps, well. There is a hint of narrative, but also a degree of ambiguity which I like. In terms of the technicals, I feel this could be stronger: perhaps a little of the eye visible, and a slightly different arrangement of the hair (I find the peice behind her open mouth rather distracting). The photo overall hasa rather flat feeling; whether greater sharpness or different lighting would help I am unsure.

Classic shot, but would like to see at least one of her eyes...
