Now, this critique is coming from an artist who is not a photographer, but rather from an artist who paints. But still, there are general criteria that all artists follow for critique, so I will stick to that.

Firstly, the emotion is indicative of a woman in great distress and pain. There is no room for the viewer to misunderstand it as anything else, which is excellent. In this way, you've successfully manifested the feeling of grief and anguish. The intensity behind the eyes is also stunning. What really helps unite the emotion is the posing of the hands, which do not seem posed at all. This is another difficult thing to do. When a person is caught in such a moment as this, their whole body tenses up and shakes, even spasms. The fact that you've managed to get the hands to seem so realistically caught in this moment is incredible.

Secondly, my only critique would be the lighting. The light could be played with more to really emphasize this scene. Playing with the lights and darks would push the shapes and planes on her face and hands.

Other than that, and over all, this is wonderful work, as usual from you.

I love the emotion captured in this image. You can almost imagine the pain the model is feeling. The use of black and white in this image was the perfect choice. The image over all is very gripping. As a member of the armed forces, I can imagine this look as being total sadness and loss. The use of natural light(as far as I can tell) was a great choice. Job very well done by both the artist and the model. This could almost be portrayed as a war image. I am very glad to be a follower of this page.

Very expressive portrait. When I first saw this image it gave me chills down my spine, reminding me of the same emotion I felt when my grandmother passed away. Even though this was a role play portrait the emotion feels real.
