Very dramatic. The only improvement I could think of would be if she'd been looking up from the bottom 1/3rd of the photo. I'm a big fan of negative space, especially where the subject leads you into it.

Great Scotts! Great shot. This is why I wish I could take better human shots... because you can get results like this!

Tell Elise I think she's beautiful.

It definitely appears as if you did some experimenting with styles. It's drammatic and thespian. Very artistic.

What's your light source? Good exposure, though I wonder if she could be a little lower in the frame, to give more of the appearance of the light source being higher and more significant.

light source was a hole in the ceiling :p i get what you mean, and thought about re-working this photo to achieve that, becuase i dont have any with that composition.

Well not trying to be rude, but I doubt anyone is gonna steal your photo and it just distracts it.

Fantastic lighting Chris! =D Great composition too.

Did you mess with it to get it that dark or did ya have it set up that way? Either way I really like it.

Wow... This is very much different from most of your photos. I really like this a lot. I like how you can see her face, and it is in black and white... And then most of the photo is black.. Very awesome job. I think it is nicely focused and everything.
