sorry, no critique from me, just admiration. like how the smudged out lipstick seems to distord her face and gives her a wry smile. excellent toning, great detail, outstanding photo

Did you mean this to go up for critique? There's no suggestion I can make to improve this.

This image is very dramatic, starting for the cropping, I am not sure if I would crop so close to the eyebrow, great textures and contrast, I love that you included the leaves, and you made the makeup look like the leaves. I don't think you need to improve this image, I would buy this image Smile

Excellent stuff, if a little contrived. You don't need to improve this image.

I agree with the above that we are looking at a striking and well composed image.
Just wonder why the lh bottom corner is blurred. I would have expected a blurred leaf there resting on the body to creat depth. Just a minor niggle.

Maybe a slightly stronger catch light in the left eye (as you look at it)?

Brought Johnny Cash's version of NIN's "Hurt" to mind when looking at this.

Such a strong image and the balance of the picture is really nice with the leaves forming a dark area to mirror the dark top left area, just a wonderfully planned and executed shot.

not much critique needed in this shot, it works just fine.
agree with Westers about the catchlight and i would remove the dots on the shoulder but other than that it works just fine.
