In this image I wanted more definition on the handcuffs, rather than the model. I believe i achieved this, showing the feeling of been trapped.

Like the idea behind this......if it was mine I'd do a severe crop to where the hands start cropping out a lot of the hair....

If you want the idea of 'trapped' I think you need to tighten the cuffs and remove the key

A good idea indeed, and some good insider knowledge there from Roy Wink. A couple of little niggles for me. I think it looks a bit too posed, and the models's expression is a bit too forced - I think it conveys a feeling of determination and concentration rather than pf being trapped.

I like cath's idea of a crop which I think emphasised the "trappedness".

A good idea indeed, but technically a little lacking.

I would crop both top and bottom quite a bit to concentrate on the cuffs. I would then darken the image and up the contrast - it looks rather flat.

Then, you say you wanted more defiinition on the cuffs than the face - you have done that, but the cuffs still need to be rather sharper.
