I don't like cigarettes, I do like the photography, and the model.  But overall, you'll get better feedback in "critique."

I don't like the crop, but I love the look and the lighting.  Nicely done!

I like it!
If you are going to shoot horizontal portraits then be sure to offset your subject (rule of thirds) and use the negative space to make it interesting.
Best of luck!

Noice.  I like it.  And I'm a big fan of tight crops when appropriate and here it works really well.

Nicely done.

Keep up taking pictures and you'll end up being a "creepy photographer" instead of a model. Nice shot.

Very nice, especially for a first attempt. Next time, crop less tightly on the right side to give more negative space (in the direction the cigarette is pointed) basically so you're offset from the center. Providing that negative space allows the viewers eye to "breathe" and feels a bit less claustrophobic.

Well done.

This is a what do you/ don't you like response... I like the B&W and over all image... I don't like the cig or your eye being covered.  Nice artistic touch, but a nice head shot in your port would improve it . my 2 cents.

So, keep on shooting, its fun.

Bonus points for shooting yourself completely wide open (was it f/1.4 or f/1.8?) and having what you wanted in focus.

That couldn't be easy.

As I commented on one of your images, I think that your self-portraits are some of the best in your MM portfolio

I like it, and I like smoking shots, but the angle of your hand makes it look weird and so you're mostly just covering up your face.

I think it would be better without.

Other than that, great job. Keep going for sure.
