The beauty of a true romantic is what I see here. The content behind the image is the old story that she is waiting for her partner and she waits and waits. What we hear lately is she dies unfulfilled and alone. I see this as a cry for a happy ending we all need one. Well her we have a beautiful shot with the hint of sepia to give that old vintage look but there is a subtle thing happening on the photo, there are lines on the image that you don't see on her face, hands or flowers. This draws your eye to her face and her Eleanor Rigby expression. This photo is very victorian in style. The use of the natural lighting is awesome, very similar to the lighting used by the artist Vermeer. The model and Photographer and the person who did the post work did a great job!

The angle and lighting are perfect here, the sharp reflection in the eyes draw your attention right in. I really like the saturation, and the scratches in the background, an antiquated look for a timeless emotion. The only thing I find odd is the background behind the roses, the lightness of it right next to the stark shadows on the stems and leaves make the roses look fake, like they're not really part of the photo. I'd suggest darkening that top left corner to make a more natural shadow appearance. Excellent work though, you definitely know how to put that kick into a photo

great job! there is one thing that I like that hasn't been mentioned yet. i love how you used the window frame as a diagonal from the right bottom corner to lead the eye right to the face. also this leading line in conjunction with the line of the face and hand create a nice triangle! great compostion!

I also love the strange color of the flowers and how you are holding them and i love the look on your face! you have great eyes and your eyeliner is also beautiful. I love smiles that are very faint and partial.

I very much agree with ~whimsi's critique, below. This is beautifully done but there seems to be a crossing of eras. Overall, it is a wonderful, meaningful piece, and I think you have a lot to be proud of! :)

Yeah it does, actually we didn't have any special era in mind when doing the shot, so ;) That is probably why it happened.
