I typed out a totally long and great description which I lost because my file size was too big. I'll edit this later.

Pregnant women always make nice silhouettes.

It looks like you dodged out a lot more of the shade behind the woman's bust than was necessary. The angle of her head conveys a feeling that she's looking hopefully toward the future.

Lovely view and great light. I love the touches of texture in the background, although the skewed upright disrupts the cleanliness of the shot for me.

I really like the innocence of this image and anticipation of what's ahead. I find the wall to the left and bottom distracting and would have liked to have seen a tighter crop to include just the mommy's silhoutte and blind behind her. Good Luck.

I like how the shape of the outer black conforms to her shape. Would have liked to see less detail in the mode'l's face and chest. And if her fingers weren' t visible, she would have looked like a pregnant venus de milo. I'm thinking that would have been a cool idea.

a bit too much noise but a nice shot....the faded white washed blinds give almost that "Sin City" feel

Nice capture, and hats off to the subject, a very sensitive time. This escapes negative space nicely. The noise is a nice touch. 10

there needs to be more definition between her breasts and belly ...
