I think her face is nicely exposed. I wish there was some definition around the edge of her scarf to separate it from the b/g. I like the expression.

Now that's a photo with contrast, and a fantastic subject that really comes across. Hope you explain how you did this. Certainly the best picture I have seen so far (half way marking), very good luck with this.

Your model seems both weary and hopeful, and her feelings are well supported by the color scheme. What great eyes!

Excellent image. True to the challenge and highly emotive.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

really beautiful detail in a high-contrast image :) nicely done; and the expression is one that makes me want to know more of the 'story' behind the photo; the border is great because it keeps my eyes from goign outside of the frame... and overall its a lovely image :) (9)

Whoa. Strong, but would prefer to see a tiny bit of highlight detail. Do you have a less contrasty original?
