hey hey fromt he critique club!
i really like this image, the only thing that bothers me is the hair strands across her lips and right eye. lighting is very nice, the highlights on her hair are lovely. her gaze is looking right into the viewer, intriguing. the only thing besides that hair that i would change might be the angle of your model's head, tilting it a bit up might help her general appearance

The proverbial Rene Zellweger Mischief Pose! I like it! Great Job! :)

This has the potential to be an excellent portrait, but that tuft of hair below the model's lip looks disconnected and bears too much of a resemblance to a goatee.

This is beautiful but I find the piece of hair under her mouth very distracting

the strand of hair coming down under her lip looks like some strange goatee.. otherwise, beautiful photo

I think I might have explored using the model's finger in lieu of the tuft of hair which she appears to be blowing. Great low key. Very nice.

Although I rated you high ( E for EFFORT), The overall composition seems a bit erratic. You took the time to place your lights, pose your model, prepare the background, match dress color to blend in with background and yet her hair, facial expression, facial shadows, hair protruding from her chin seem all wrong and bothersome. Good luck.

I think this image is by far the best, a portrait that really stands out.
Very nice lighting and pose, beautiful model, clever title..
Good luck! (10)

Ok, on my first look at this I loved the shot, and I still like it, however, upon looking at this again it looks like hair or something distracting around her chin. What is it?

The mouthful of hair is distracting.
