Greetings from the critique club :)

Well hi there Guðbjörg, always fun to critique a fellow Icelander.

Well I kindof like it too but I don´t love it, if I had voted I probably would have given it a 6. It´s a pretty cool shot, I like the wind in the hair and the shadow in the window falling on her. The black areas are too much for my taste though, I would have either wanted to see a little bit brighter shadows or simply a photo that cropped a lot off the top and bottom of this photograph.

I don´t fully understand the camera settings, why iso 800? If it´s grain you are looking for, sure but that won´t be visible in web resolution anyway, why not may be 1/125 shutter, iso 100 and 5.6? Eh, that is just what I would do so don´t listen too much to me, I just think that would have lead to better image quality.

Nice choice to make it b/w, I think this photograph would do well in a series with several others like it so just keep at it and work on your own style.

Kind regards from your own Iceland, Lárus.

oohhh lovely flipping hair! i think that some of the negative space isn't really needed, a tighter crop would being more attention to the subject and shaddows

I love the solitude of this. The broken glass (I think that's what it is) is such an added bonus. The composition and processing is nice, also. Great expression of raw emotion from the model.
