A little tongue would have helped

I like this shot a lot, however I feel like it's not so much about the portrait of the pet as it is about the relationship she has with the pet - that may be a tad picky on my part, but that was my first impression. Excellent shot regarless.

Nice balance to the composition, though the snake is just a small part of it. If you caught him/her with tongue sticking out that would have bumped this into a whole 'nother level of wonderfulness, but it's pretty good as is.

Looks dangerous!! and the snake is kinda scary too!!

Nice composition, perfect lighting. Interesting take on the challenge, you don't see many snakes here.

The repeat of the yellow on brown on opposite corners of the shot is really striking.

Love it.... great shot!! I am a little confused about the colour of the snake? Is it a Ball Python? We also have one. Looks like our Monty's pattern and size??

Nice skin tone, great composition. Too bad the snakes tongue wasn't out. But that is a small detail.

Too me the snake acts almost as a leading line to the model. The model appears to me as your main subject, she is taking up much more room of the frame then your pet subject. I found the manicure on the models hands distracting form the snake. The white stands out and drew my eye on that side. Overall, a very nice picture.

More her than its portrait, but a very pretty image.

Nice composition. Good black background and lighting on the foreground. Coming back after looking at the rest to add this is one of the best. Very unique, scary for us arachnophobiacs [edit: make that Ophiophobiacs] and showing a great connection between your two subjects. I assume she isn't afraid of snakes. Excellent job. Sorry I'm not voting in this one.

This is really lovely! I like how sharp the snake is and the negative space in it is perfect!

Really a great shot! Not a fan of snakes, but this one is sure appealing! Nice set-up, composition, and a beautiful model to boot! (and I don't mean the snake!) I like how the yellow in the snakeskin matches/compliments the hair color of the model. Bravo! *9*

Beautiful portrait of the two subjects.
