Great image and I love the way you have allowed the shadows to fall away to total black.

This really is beautiful, and gets a UA from me. But I'm going to disagree with Robert, I want to crop a slice off the left side. Reasons: to place the face further off-centre, to have her looking into the frame; because that heavy darkness is like a dead weight dragging my eye away from the face; too much space behind a face (human, flower, building...) risks being wasted space. I also want to get rid of that little triangle of light top left.
I hope you won't be offended by that, it's how I see the image. But it's your picture.

Thank you for the feedback. Re: Holding her breath - I know what you mean!.. it felt like a fairly breath-taking moment Smile. Re: Cropping the image. Certainly worth playing with - thank you. My intention here was to show the full scope of the moment - from light to dark, but I can see what you're saying... worth an edited rendition, I think.

I feel the darkness on the left is a natural 'ending' for the light graduation from right to left, and adds balance to the frame, too.
