You have done a masterful job. That this is a self portrait makes it even more amazing. This image struck me as I browsed through 100's of images. Your look and pose are very good. The composition with your position in the frame and your outfit are very well chosen. The obscure figure in the bottom right add to the mood of this shot. Your choice of post process coloring combine to make this simply stunning. I imagine you will be happy with this long into your career. You have a true artistry. Keep up your inspired work. I see no flaws in this work.

I love the colouring and the haziness! This has such a lonely atmosphere despite the beauty of the fur and leotard and the romantic mistiness.

Thumbs up! I love your face expression, and also the orange and blue tones in the image. At first I didn't see the person in the background, and when I did I felt that the image got a whole new meaning to it. At first I saw a lost girl longing for something she can't reach in the distance. And once I discovered the person in the background I got a haunted feeling. Like she's on the run, but don't know where to go. Also the title on the photo (which I always try not to read as it takes away the first feeling of the photo) tells me that the second thought, of her being on the run is the more "correct" one.

Awesome work anyway - as always.

Very ethereal. I absolutly love the inclusion of the shaded figure at the bottom right. The haunting and confused look of your face is well done and sells the image.

Beautiful, and somewhat haunting.

The title ("The Prisoner"), the fog, the facial expression, and the obscured figure in the background all invite an almost poetic interpretation.

Is the title subject a literal prisoner? Or is it figurative of some emotional state, such as loneliness or some other unidentified psychiatric torment?
Is she a prisoner of love, and is he the one she searches or waits for? A prisoner of death, in some sort of limbo? A prisoner in her dream, being stalked by some nightmare Boogey-Man? There are perhaps hundreds of scenarios one can speculate over... all of them befitting and thought-provoking.

Technically, I like it very much. Excellent color-grading. Great composition. I like photos which tell a story, even when the story is perhaps very ambiguous.
