Dificult to comment on this pic. Very artistic in nature and the lack of detail - strong contrast - and noise levels could be there for effect in which case it would be incorrect to pass comment in this regard. The pic makes me think so from my perspective it has something. I Look forw2ard to seeing more.

Nice image. I like the grittiness of it. Goes well with the models expression. How did you shoot it?

This is a very nice image. Strong, gritty and very nice blacks.

This is good visually, but the image does not tell a story. If anything, the model's expression, given the surroundings, is confusing. Seems to be a vanity shot, although not being able to see the model's eyes sort of defeats that goal.

The model being attractive makes the image plausible. It is confusing. It's blotchy. The perspective of the lines throw it off and the hot spot of the light doesn't hold you to the model. Looks like the model is about ready to sneeze or something. I don't think every image needs to tell a story but it has to make sense. I love high contrast black and white and grain but this looks over processed and reminds me of the day I cooked a roll of tri-x film in the developer and had a 65 second exposure through the enlarger.

I am not trying to be mean here at all. Just recognizing that this image is not all there.

well, it certainly is not the glossy picture you se here on fashion/models all the time, but it actually looks more like somthing from a high end fashion catalog than something by Freddy or TLV et all...

It's great to see diverse stuff and not the usual 6-flashes-skin-photoshopped-to-death stuff circulating here usually.

Congrats!
