The clarity of this photo is amazing. The blue background helps the focus to be on the subject, but also creates enough interest to make you wonder where it was taken. The subject is appropriately beautiful with an elegant dress and presentation which seems to contrast with the semi-industrial/technology park theme of the background.

The reflection of the arrows conveys a sense of direction to the right as if pointing to someone or creating a feeling of action and the model leaning to the right pairs well with that, as if leaning into the action. But at the same time, looking at only the top half of the image, the lines are leaning the opposite way of how she's leaning so it gives another something for the eye to latch onto.

Excellent work.
