nice lighting; great story behind this; very sensual in that you can just tell that she doesn't want to do something, she's a bit anxious adn that works well. nice job

Before I read the title, I thought she was sticking something up her ear.

Interesting candid shot. Too bad it looks like she is sticking the cigarette in her ear, but I guess you couldn't really have gone over to her and asked her to move it.

Lovely shot...looks a little staged.

This rather nice photo would be improved by slight cropping at the top, more at the bottom. The space under the bench is distracting and unnecessary, and unbalances the picture. Too bad the light in the eye could not have been avoided.

I think b/w would have really captured this well.

are you absolutely certain she's not just taking her temperature aurally? There's just no way to really tell that's a cigarette in her hand... It could be a pen, pencil, a piece of chalk, or, well, a thermometer, however unlikely that might be...

The bright reflection on her knee is distracting.

Does she think that cigarette is her cell phone?

Cool idea for a picture. Needs more work though, sharpness, framing, and lighting. I like the pose and the background though.
