From the Critique Club.

Composition: This is a well-framed half-length portrait. Strong lines from the arms lead the viewer to the interesting face which is, in turn, well framed by the hands and her hair.

Technical: Focus seems perfect, and the lighting -- which could have been a real problem given the shininess of her jacket -- is carefully handled. The black background works and is appropriate.

Theme and Overall: It is hard to fault this for the "Blue" challenge -- her jacket is blue, her lips, eye shadow and fingernails are blue, the bracelet highlights blue pieces, and there are blue sheens in her hair. I agree with one of the commenters that her expression could have been beeter, but that's not a real distraction.

Overall, this is a very satisfying portrait

Lighting seems a bit harsh on the jacket. Her bored expression kinda makes me bored... heh... woulda preferred her to give some mild attitude.

Excellent portrait, with some wonderful shades of blue! Wow you really got her all dressed up for this! I really like it, fabulous lighting and framing and everything. I'm giving this a 10!

Cute but I think it would have been better without the blue in the hair. byetko.

she doesnt look to be in blue... at least not a standard shade... it looks more aqua or blue green and a really light shade at that... just doesn't say blue to me... give me true blue
