From the title I gather the theme here is contemplation of suicide.
A difficult subject to try and deal with artistically, particularly when there is no clear message to take from it.
Compositionally and visually this is not as strong as your other work, the overexposed arch on the left is very distracting in my view.
Sorry I'm not more positive about this shot, you know I love your work and admire your skills as an artist.

i think the title is perfect for the photo, for me the overexposed part shows the light she`s waiting for.

the contrast is high perfectly fitting to the subject, also the light in the black.

... seems to me she's gone already, laying flat cold on a dusty road. Killed in a early morning showdown on the streets of Laredo, shot point-blank by Callamity Jane, following a quarell over who would warm the bed of Doc Holiday.
Well, either she has big hands, or that is one small gun.
Gundega, you're not only a photographer but also an artist(and PS master:-). I suppose you're also a fan from Jan Saudek(like me). I can see a touch from him in your pictures.
Your whole work is impressive. Congratulations.
