That shot couldn't be mine because the skin is too uneven and saturated, and there is not enough detail in the shadows of the model.  You can see blue fringes around the hair that I wouldn't accept.  I want everything that is the model to be interesting.  For such a close-in crop, this is very important to me.  Sometimes I want background interest too.
PS.  My avatar is different now than it was a yesterday.

It couldn't be mine because the seam of the tights going right up the stomach is horribly distracting to me.

Wouldn't be mine because I dislike the pose.

Couldn't be mine because I don't have those abs! Also, I don't think I could pull off the badassery.

Because I would have lit her differently (more low key) and used a stronger pose, and I probably would have put her in front of a darker background, to accentuate the emotion she's showing.

Because I would have lit and posed it differently. I have had a certain fascination with Venetian ball masks since the first time I watched the movie, To Catch a Thief.

However, once you cover the model's face, I believe there should be another reason for making the photograph other than to show the mask. It might be expressive eyes and/or lips, a pose, the wardrobe (or the absence of it), the surroundings...

I'm not sure what is the point of this photo.

About the ONLY reasons that couldn't be mine is because 1) I hate stark shadows; 2) details in the shadows are low.

I would prefer myself to be cropped differently, and a different background.

Couldn't be mine as I dislike 'collages'. Two lovely shots that would work beautifully as single images.

Camerosity - I prefer a more creative/different avi. To stand out more.

Drew Smith - Man... I can't see any reason why that couldn't mine. Beautiful... but I guess... I'd try a different approach with the softy effect. Maybe give it more texture for less of an angelic look that it has now. Make it look more dominant.

I like the portrait and light, but I would look absolutely horrendous in that shade of lipstick (which works for your model). It'd kill the shot if I took it.

Oh, all right. You can wear your choice of lipstick, Samantha.
