Man, I am getting all the tough ones tonight! :D

First, congrats on a high placing for an unconventional photo -- not many could have pulled it off. The composition and sensitivity the image projects carried it past what many I fear saw as a set-back -- the darkness of it.

I will freely admit that I was put off by the darkness at first, but as I've sit here looking it over as I prepare to write this critique I began noticing things I hadn't before. While I was first put off by the complete loss of detail in the front and around the girl in general -- I began to realize that this darkness caused my eye to move toward the book in her hand. Specifically, it emphasizes that she has a pen and is using it. The darkness occludes everything else, leaving me with only that it is a picture of a girl with a pen -- just what you intended I'm sure.

It is a well executed image, stopping the view long enough to get the point across and then releasing -- it is this grabbing of the voters that feel moved them past the darkness and into a higher score.

A wonderful showing, and rewarded you with a new personal best -- congrats again.

Adding myself to the ranks of those who say this should have scored higher. A dark image that is also delicate is a rare find, and you have accomplished it here.

8 - Very good. Criticism; a little dark in my opinion, but I realize that is the style you were going for. Good capture of the username. Nice setting and angle. Up to 8 from 7.

Is that the draganizer effect ?

Hmmm, I like the idea and composition, but I do wonder if Neat Image was used on this photo. If so, for me, I think it was used a bit too much. I would have liked to see this before editing in a photo program.

A bit too dark... I'd like to be able to see more details in the front of the picture.

I love the deep richness of this. Some might find it too dark, but I love it. The lighting that is visible showcases several spots throughout the girl and around her. Lovely on all counts!
