Gorgeous take. 
But, why to chop the head? Your carisma makes most of the picture.

Thanks for bring us your art.

Love the abs! Wish more women weren't afraid to tone and lose a bit of the stereotypically soft pop influenced attributes. Glad they've got at least one role model out there that's both strong and beautiful.

Yes, it's good. Very good. :)

I like the lighting, shadows that go with it and effect they make together with your flowing hair. Going without makeup was a good choice and looks like I am not alone to think you and your outfit remind one of some princess in a science fiction story.

Perfect photo, Lauren! You look like some eternal goddess or princess from Mars :)
So simple, bare I dare say, and yet with those simple tools like superb tones of the background light or well balanced crop this photo becomes a unique piece of art.
Love you without makeup - it shows how beautiful and sensual you truly are :heart:

Hmmm, don't think about making art? I am still currently "struggling" with this ideology, because while I believe I understand the reason behind this statement, I also believe that if you do not stop to both examine what you ARE creating, as well as what you have PREVIOUSLY created, an artist may never grow. I have gone through periods of several months where I stopped shooting and I was trying to look at what I was doing to decide why I thought I was shooting it (what motivated me, and why I chose certain elements/styles/etc).

Even during the actual creation I sometimes stop to think about what I am doing, just to examine it. I do not try to minimize, deconstruct, or simplify "it," but at the least I do wish to examine it! I can understand why there may be an interruption of a creative process though...

Good quote! :) (Smile) 
For me the arts are a means of expression. They like them or not is another question ^ ^

In French because I'm not sure of the translation Sweating a little... 

Jolie citation !

Pour moi les Arts sont un moyen d’expression. Qu’ils plaisent ou pas c’est une autre question ^^
