Ummm... Well, given that it was shot under difficult conditions, not bad, but really, it looks to me more like a snap-shot than anything. The shutter-speed was too low resulting in excessive subject movement, the face, neck and upper right arm have large blown areas with little detail, and the colour is dull. Ouch! Okay, that's because it's in the critique thread. In fairness, unless you're going in with some high-end gear including a good, fast lens, and a body with excellent high-ISO performance, shots like this are very difficult. I'm sure that AcadieLibre who is far more practiced in this area then am I can offer some excellent advice.

(Oh and Sister looks an awful lot like a brother to me! :p )

Agree with T.I. - The photo is not sharp....and it's not blurry enough in the right places. This is hard stuff though.

As others have pointed out this image has its problems. The composition however, is excellent. I love the head back and the string bend.
