This is a beautiful portrait for so many reasons, not the least of which being the model, but moreso the colours, lighting and composition. The faded browns are calm colours, it's a very serene environment, yet the expression and placement of the hand would suggest otherwise in another lighting. The overall softness of the shot gives more of an impression of daydreaming than of anxiety. The title furthers this idea and, in my opinion, completes it. The choice of focus is what I find particularly interesting and what has prompted me to write a critique. That the shot focuses on the hair rather than the face, to me, seems a subtle and clever representation of the theme.
In short: aesthetically pleasing and intriguing in design. Well done.

The emotion in this piece is portrayed perfectly through the pose and the fact that the model isn't looking at the camera! The soft colours and lighting also convey the emotions beautifully! Wonderful piece~
