nice portrait of a beautiful woman! You could bring it up a notch if you used one more light from the back to separate hair from the dark background...

She is definitely beautiful, and fierce. Her wardrobe is incredible. I like the dramatic lighting, although I think a tiny bet behind her shoulder would have added more dimension and depth. But "glamour" is also an attitude, which she does not exhibit. I get determination, courage, strength. An expression with bit more langorous and self-indulgent would have been more "glamorous"

I like the subtractive black background. I am not sure of her emotion though. Frustration would have been a good strong image but she doesn't quite sell that for me. I like the way her eyes stand out and the outfit adds texture and feel to the shot.

Excellent shot. The light is perfect as is her expression and pose.

definitely in the top 5 for me, I love the deep shadow to the lighting here but with light still in the dark eye. Great pose and colours in the this as well. The only downside is the lack of seperation between the hair/shoulder (camera left) and the black background

Great expression, lovely model, and excellent exotic outfit, but I wish she stood out better from the background. The deep shadows and her black hair really get lost in the black background.
