Great expression, like the purple theme and contrasting complementary yellows. I would crop it right below the neckline in back because there is something about the lower portion of her figure which doesn'y quite look right to me. Area above upper lip comes across slightly flat. Overall, I realy like it, especially the highlights and her imperioous eyes.:clap:

Nice work in the shadows..it captures the mood and expression well by filling in information about the face..the small hair highlights make me wonder how the light was placed since they are not more in evidence...don't mind me..it's just the photographer in me sneaking out..this is quite well done!:clap: :clap: :clap:

Great job! Love the little accents of different colours here and there. Wonderful reflected red under her chin. And you've captured a great expression.
