Beautiful! This reminds me a bit of some of Edward Hooper's paintings, because of the isolated melancholy feeling. Well done.

Reading the strange comments that some people come out with is sometimes entertaining, sometimes just painful.

She's beautiful.

I actually favoured this, there is so much for people to interpret and the fact that this was a mere error or accident just makes my mind rush! It's like this whole shot is moot(though I'd rather have used the word mot ;D) of ones artistic opinions. I genuinely love it.

Great piece of work. I love the look of the film and also that you didn't retouch her skin at her breasts. I like that natural look and the courage of the model to show that imperfect part of her body. Also the fact that the focus is exactly on that part of the body adds to the overall impression. :thumbsup:

Its interesting. the sharpness is in the center of the image but I don't think any of the blurry or sharp areas detract from the photo. If looked at with artists eyes, one can see things of interest. For example, the focus seems to be on her breasts (the sharpest but also the most 'imperfect' area of the model ) and the lamp is the second in focus. My eye is drawn to the breast first and the lamp second... Hierarchy and and structure in play. Shape and size also help in this composition. I think people are focusing too much on particular body parts AS BODY PARTS. Going past that and looking into composition, lighting , color and so forth, I think the image takes what was unintentional photography happenings and translated them into art, nonetheless. I think the image is still beautiful due to mood, tone, composition, model expression, color and such. I say good job. =D

The harsh shadow in the lower right corner bothers me a little.
I just dont like some shadows.

BUT< I think the overall composition works well. her gaze is opposite of the heavy corner so it might balance the weight a little and her dark hair. One light casting on the background woulda helped
