I really enjoy looking at this picture. It is very deep and holds a lot of emotion and meaning. I looks as if I am looking for something or waiting for something to happen. I would however scale down the bricks in the background because they look out of proportion with the face. Real brick would be shorter and a little longer. I would also wash out the skin a bit more and darken the lips that will draw attention to the features of the face, like the eyes and the lips. Over all I really Love this picture. Good Job!!
