Hey there from the Critique Club

Camera Work/Technical: Nice choice of WB here to establish a warm tone. It really adds to the mood of the capture. I can't put my finger on it, but something seems a bit off focus.

Lighting: I like what you accomplished here with the single candle light. It produces some very nice highlights and shadows on the face. The flame itself is just a tad overexposed.

Composition/Content: The face is a bit centered, but it works well with the candle balancing the photo from the right side.

My Opinion: Very nice capture, and I think that this one scored to its full potential. It meets the challenge very well.

Great photo. The candlelight really creates some great drama, and accenuates the expression of you're model. This would of been perfect in DPC Cinema challenge as well. Excellent!
