To me, it doesn't matter if a picture breaks rules as long as it works visually. And by that I mean, that it works on an aesthetic level for me, since I can't speak for anyone else. I love this picture.

Classically, far too dark. But, for me, it gains a really moody and arty feel. I think you were very brave to take the light so low, but I think it's a great shot. The image is a little bit soft, but nothing a little sharpening wouldn't put right. Fortunately, with such a dark image, there isn't too much that needs to be sharpened! A fabulous submission.

I like the shapes defined by your shoulders with this lighting technique.

Need focus. THe ears are funky red too. Good idea, one i tried myself and failed at.

Focus on the hair is off, otherwise I like this pic.

Lovely and simple. I really like the graceful light on your shoulders.

good balance - good color - good concept

Looks blurry, and the light isn't strong enough on the edges and hair, etc.

Yeah! I love it!

great idea, less effective execution

The lighting is excellent! I would still like to see some detail in the face though.

I can't help but wish there was a tiny bit more light on your face, since if I look hard enough I can see the outline of some of your facial features.
