so...you're the guy hogging all the comments that nobody in the mid-5s ever get ;-)

i imagine you knew what to expect from dpc going in, and i applaud you're going with what you wanted rather than what was expected.

Beautiful example of the rules of thirds.

Looks very posed, and I personally don't like the crop.

to me...the picture is off balance...the model is facing the right side of the frame when all the space is on the left....try to make sure that your subjects are positioned so they are looking or facing toward the center of the frame rather than toward an outer edge...thats just wait I have learned from all my reading...other than that...everything else looks great...love the b/w....8

the only thing I don't like about it is the dark band on the far right behind the subject... it seems to push her out of the frame - more accurately it seems to shrink the frame horizontally. then again it adds to the tension of her looking past- and being at - the edge already.

Rule of thirds needs your point of interest on or near the intersetion of the thirds lines. In this case, you'd move you model left in frame, the vertical is ok

I would have moved her slightly left or cropped the pic less tightly on the right but good image and meets challenge

She seems a little too close to the edge of the photo.

I think you gave the photograph good tension by facing the subject out of the frame, leaves you wondering what she's waiting for.

I would have preferred her a little to the left. Also, I've read (and notifced more sinc reading it) that facing objects to the left creates more tension. I tried it on this picture, and it changes from waiting for a friend and bored, to waiting to go into a hospital room or something more forebodeing.

I like the tonal range, and how the flattened but still textured wall (or whatever leads your eye to her. Nice use of negative space. Move her a little center, and facing left and I really like this much better.

Obviously she is looking away intentionally, I respect that choice, but it looks a little boring to me and the background is dull. 5

A little too close to the sidefor my liking...

Clever. I like the highlights on the hair and her pensive looe. This has a good use of black and white. Maybe upturned eyes would have worked a bit better for me.

Good photo and good use of the thirds. The only problem. Your subject is looking the wrong way.

well composed according to the rule
great tonal gradation in this image the hair of the model is captiured most beautifuly in shadow and highlight
aptly titled well presented (ie choosing not to boarder this image would suffer from it)
