Thanks for the comments everyone. Regarding the composition, it was vertical initially, but I extended the Black in post. I felt the model still had enough attention, and this way it thumbnails better.

@tanguera: I'm not versed well enough in PS to uses tools like liquify, in fact I hadn't even heard of it until your comment. The effect is achieved by shooting wide and up close.

Wow, smoldering pose, fantastic lighting, you nailed it, way to go!

Really nice soft light here and great light coming through the top of her hair. I'm wondering though if a vertical composition would have shown this off better.

Very lovely, but there is something odd about her figure, like you used liquify and stretched her out. Perhaps it's the lens/perspective which is causing some foreshortening - but she's a bit odd-looking to me.

Nice entry for the contest. I think I would have liked to see a little less background black, so more focus would be put on the model.
