I'm editing this on a crappy monitor. I hope it doesn't tank!

My intent was to wear the same outfit in my SP, but dummy me forgot the top.

Edit: Ok, for those who care (which I doubt are many) a swan song is like a final performance for a performer. //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swan_song This was metaphorical (long word, I know) with a sort of 'down the road well traveled' idea behind it. Those are pointe shoes, so it was a sort of, last hurrah before wandering off with no shoes down the beaten path

you should really wear shoes on bumpy roads.

I think this would work better at a bigger size. As it is, I can't tell what these things are that are hanging off your shoulders, and it distracts. I also think to convey your idea of a swan song, of walking away for the final time, you should be further down the road. By being at the start of the road, it seems more like you're at the start of your journey. I gave you a 6 because it's a well executed, good looking photograph with a good composition. The reasons above relate to why I didn't score it higher.
