The pale, high-key look here is very mod. The composition is also very interesting, the arms work to draw the eyes to the subjects face. Nicely done!

Nice job, the hand being so out of focus up front takes away a little but I like how she is like diving into the pic.

the spots on her shoulder are a distraction. Other than that, great shot.

Very nicely lit and I like your post processing. I like the unconventional composition and the lines of her arms. I am not sure that the big hand in the foreground works for me, but I am not sure how yo uwould avoid it and keep the pose/composition. Maybe if her hand was more relaxed so at least her thumb wasn't sticking up there it would help. 7 from me.

I like the look on her face and the high key look of the image. I don't think the hand in front adds to the image.

Nice portrait. My eyes are pulled away from her face by the thumb sticking up on her hand, but otherwise, very nice composition.

I love the high key sense of it. I think the hand in the foreground is a large distractive force. Here eyes, face shoulder and arms are well lit but the hands take away. I'm wondering if you just cropped it more squarely. I think it would work. She's quite lovely.
