I decided to title this one "Balance". Do you think the title fits the image? Also there is a distinct shadow around the breast (intentional) was this a good idea?



As always your feedback much appreciated.

Thanks.

No, the model does not look in balance to me. I don't think the shadow adds anything at all to the photo. The cropping is bad in my opinion. The lighting is very uneven. Sorry, but that is my opinion. Shadows often make or break a photo. The example that I have attached shows how shadows normally work in figure photography (to give add dimension to the image). This "Chiaroscuro" draws attention to the line and form of the figure.
Cheers,
rfs

Thanks for your frank opinion.
That's why I posted this one here. I received opinions on the other end of the spectrum from a different photo review forum and wanted a reality check because I was not fully convinced with the comments there.

I won't offer my opinion regarding the "title" but instead I want to add that the "graininess" adds to the mood. I like the grainy nature of the photo as well as some of the shadows.

I do think, however; that her elbows locked in that position make them look awkward.
