Hello Marina,
You definitely have a recognizable style...
I like this portrait for its theme, the "merging" of your model and the corn stalks, the higly saturated B&W and the crop.
At first sight, I thought her face was a bit dark, but at second sight, I've come to the conclusion that this feature fits with the "merging"-effect I mentioned. There is a coherence between textures and tones, your model really looking as if she were "part" of the corn field. The "soul" of the corn field, in some way...
TFS & kind regards,
PS Just out of curiosity, if I may: seeing in your intro page that you say you're from the Netherlands, I asked myself whether you speak/understand Dutch?

Howdy Marinka!
Nice picture. Beautiful girl. Very good portrait.
