Nice concept.  The bodypaint is beautiful (did you do it?).

As far as the overall image goes, I like it, but I don't love it.  Not sure why, but I think I've narrowed it down to three things.  It could be the proportion between mother nature and earth; it could be the crop (think it's stronger if it's cropped tighter.. don need 3/4 body on the model, but you'd lose some of that wonderful paint job); or it could be the background.

For me it's missing something to take it from photo of a concept to a "believable reality".  That's why I said the background... if you could turn it onto space, with stars, or mist or something... I think it needs some "depth" to it.

Then again, I'm picky.  Good job.

Definitely needs photoshop backgound, etc.  The good news is that it's ready to go.  Oh, and it's beautiful so far.
