With the black background I start to lose the rosary beads between her hand and her arm. I like the shot though and the framing for it is good though a bit more of her top lip might have been good.

interesting concept..but it does not convey the emotion its meant to. Maybe you could try with a dimmer light, less arms and more expression onn the subject

Love: the specular highlights on the beads, composition.
Would like to see: more tonality in the skin, the light makes the model seem very flat.

A little overexposed in the face and upper hands. Good composition.
