This is one of the most powerful and awesome pieces I have seen today.
Since I am a huge fan of close ups, it stands out as tremendous to begin with, but also, something about black and white photography makes the mood more mysterious and beautiful.
The lighting is also very perfect for this scene, and the piece in general seems to say to me "I've got a secret... come a little closer and I'll tell you... or perhaps I'll kill you. ^_^"
The picture is very level and the lips of the model are very alluring, and I LOVE the way you can just barely see a hint of an earring.
The model's skin is very clean and soft-looking.
In general, I give this picture 100%.
Thank you so much for this critic. *hugs* It makes me feel so nice, nyaa. This was just a random idea that got into my mind so I did it straight away. With the help of some cropping to cut out the areas that aren't necessary. The black and white simple looked so much better, there wasn't even a single reason why I should have gone with color.
Personally, I'm very satisfied with the way my lips look. I didn't even know how good they looked until I got to editing it. Somehow the black and white seemed to enhanced the look as well.
