Yea, rather well done. Makes you look. I wonder about some tone added to the background as you move left from the girl to hold in the left side and possibly a slightly brighter image over all? However, other than the tone, which I think would improve, the brightness might just be a reproduction thing.

This is a really great idea, and nearly perfectly executed.

However, the treatment is all about precision, and the crop is slightly sloppy, with minor cut-off of fingers and shoulder. If there was an obvious point or purpose served by the crop, this would be fine - but it looks as if it's oversight rather than intent.

Nothing else at all negative to say: it's a lovely and arresting shot.

Paul thanks for the comments and your modification but the MUA wanted a Highkey background hence the white.

Dudler again thanks for your comments however I do agree about the slight crop out of fingers but the shoulders has a slight white space so no cut-off thier.
As for the overall crop of the image it was intended to look like this as I like the negative space to the left hence the model placed well over to the right.
It certanly was not an oversight it was intent.

Thanks again to both of you for the comments.
