But your eyes like midnight fireflies
Light up the trenches where my heart lies
Until I can see again
Find my way back again

Let me start by saying that I've really enjoyed going through your gallery. You have a lot of quality images, this one included.

As someone who likes to get feedback on my images in order to improve and/or see things I may not have thought of, I like to help out when I can. Also, since you asked for a "critique", I assume you are looking for something other than "great image!", as that type of feedback doesn't really help; the comments are for stuff like that.

That being said, I love this pose, the fact you made it b&w and the sharpness of her eyes, which really connect with the camera.

My only two "critiques", which are totally my opinion, so take them how you will, are a) that I would change the crop slightly to bring in more of her legs and bring her head a bit further down in the image, by coming out wider and/or changing the image ratio in order to make it a bit wider, and b) I would have shot this with a longer focal length than 50mm, maybe somewhere around 100-150, in order to compress the image, thereby reducing the size of her front hand. I like that it's there, but I find it a bit distracting because it appears larger and, because her arm is mostly hidden by the train track, like it's just sitting there and doesn't belong to her.

Hopefully you find some of this helpful. :)

Sehr schöner Verlauf Schnitt und Perspektive...
War die Visa soooo hervorragend oder wurde bei der Haut etwas "nachgeholfen"?

Tolles Foto!
