Regarding the photography, it is obviously very good. The heater does detract quite a bit, unfortunately. I love the window and wish there were nothing else there.

Regarding the model, I do love the pose. The only thing that I do not love about it is your right hand coming out of your head. It would work a little better if that hand were reaching up/behind you more, or stretched out up and over your head, or coming downward.
I especially like your legs here.

I have read the "discussion" regarding the "grooming". I do not tolerate rude comments such as one or more that have been made here. However, I believe that it does detract from the flow of this particular photograph. I have nothing against pubic hair in most art nude works. Even when it's more hair than this (as seen on other models), it is often a very good look. Yours definitely works in other photos, but here it appears as a dark block of colour compared to the lightness of your skin and the room. Of course, this is just a personal opinion on the aesthetics of this one picture, and everyone's opinion will be different. I guess I just wanted to present a (hopefully) inoffensive commentary from that viewpoint, since so many people can be such dicks about it.

The hair on your head, on the other hand, I find positively graceful in this photo. The way it flows over your forehead is perfect, and the way the light hits it is too beautiful for words. As others have said, your facial expression is very good as well.

That's an interesting observation, about the compositional balance of grooming preference. It's truly not something I have seriously considered. At this moment, I'm not aware of the comments made about the grooming, but I can imagine they're not kind, let alone respectful. But I'll soon find out.
Brooke -- Stay true to yourself. I know you will, anyway. But that element is actually something I hadn't considered.

And now that I've read the comments, ignore all of them.
