Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that makes a contribution to the challenge.

I think your commenters have given you some useful critique here. They are all correct to a degree, unfortunately this is not quite working because there feels a general underexposure combined with some rim lighting together with stray lighting that is partially illuminating areas that donít really help the end result. I think you are to be commended for trying to create something original probably of a low key nature but it didnít quite work to its best. I do quite like it but what lets it down most is the rim lighting of the leg its counter to the feel of everything else going on here

I think the dark grey background really hurts this. I don't mind the idea of a rim light here, but the background and floor being kind of lit gives this the impression of underexposed (not a pun!)
