To be honest I gave this a 5 when I scored this challenge. 5 from me means for me average, neither good nor bad and I don´t really connect to the shot. For me personally this got lost in a landslide of good images and I didn´t really connect to this image. I think it´s the fact that the image is faceless and no eyes that doesn´t do it for me.

Excellent light and interesting pose. I think you could spare some of that dark area on the right. I'd cut 1/4 of the image off the right. Very good detail too. Good work.

A little more detail in the light and not som much darkness would help me. But overall good.

Great lighting and pose,I love the frown creases showing on the forhead. My only neaty picky thing will be the extended fingers on the right hand, looks unnatural to me. I am commenting on this because I think it is otherwise a great image.

Although your face is hidden, it is an excellent, hard, reavealing portrait.

Beautiful, love the lightning. It a fragile pose!

Hmmmm - I think I know who this is... maybe not.

This is very seductive and I love the lighting and lines your frown is putting on your forehead. NOt the typical portrait, but I like it.
