Beautiful work and subject. Critique wise, I would recommend centering the subject more. But that could just be my OCD acting up. But cropping, or taking wider shots to give you more to work with always helps. If it was your intention to make it seem as if she were walking toward the camera, her one leg back definitely does that, but arms could also add to it with a different positioning. If not, then centering her legs will add symmetry to the subject. As it is, the weight of the piece is centered within the frame, but skewed towards the left side of the subject. But regardless, it does not detract from the piece, it's just something to consider.

Thank you for the thoughtful critique. I did skew the piece to the right, however I thought this was counterbalanced by the higher degree of contrast on the left hand side. I am also not a huge fan of symmetrical balance, preferring to slightly or heavily place my work in asymmetrical balance.

As far as the pose and the crop, I wanted to convey a sense of power and dominance of the model over the viewer. I felt the forward movement and having the models shoulders and torso fill the entire frame helped make the piece even more domineering.

Thank you again!
