I like this photo a lot. I agree with one of the comments below that maybe a crop from higher up would've been better, but I don't think the blinds are too distracting as many have said. Your camera is visible in the reflection - it's really not that obvious but I have the same one so I guess my eyes were drawn to the shape. :)
Doesn't take away from the photo. Good job.

I must say I think this was vastly underappreciated. Can't say I'm surprised, as anything that takes more than two seconds to "get" usually gets... well... overlooked. So it goes. Your score is no reflection of the quality of this image.

I love the reflections and blinds in the background. Verticle lines are effective. Like the softness of everything. Nice job.

I like what you've done. Think it fits the challenge well, and I love the high key solution, with no blown out whites! Well done. I'm less impressed by your title, however......but thats just me.

Violeta? I thought you have coffee in the morning, or did you fool us in the coffee shop challenge? I like this picture - great face expression! I hope you won't get dis-qualified though ;-)

I like your model's positioning & expression in the frame. The stripy background seems distracting to me.

There's a lot going on here. The crop is a bit tight but nevertheless ...

this picture is really interesting to me. looking at it from the standpoint of a portrait, one might say that the strong vertical lines in the background are hopelessly distracting from the model - but I think this is merely the wrong way to look at this. Because the lines are such a strong design element, they almost become more the subject than the girl herself, which creates a very graphic-design feel to it. the background vibrates with the foreground and flattens it in a way, which leaves the whole photo as the "subject" without any real "background" elements.

nice work :)

I realy like this shot but feel it would have been a stronger composition with out the hand and in a vertical format from about the top of the zipper - 7 from me
