As I see it, you have captured the feeling of extreme sadness and sorrow in this beautiful full frame portrait. I love the expressive nature of this image, Alana...it speaks to me!!!

This has SUCH POWERFUL IMPACT! And in the professional judging, impact is at the top of the judging list. This just pulls the viewer right into her eyes.... VERY POWERFUL, Alana! Excellent job on the painting effects, lighting and close cropping!
