B&W portrait without eyes

And so my study of Black & White continues... I find myself leaning towards grainy, high contrast images.., images with some emotion, soul...
Here's a picture i made last week for a DPChallenge - "Portrait without eyes". The contest is currently in the voting phase and my image is attracting some reasonable scores. It's obviously not to everyone's taste, but i like it..., and therein lies quite a challenge for me - explore what i like, not what i think everyone else likes.
Thank you Renee for not only being my model, but for encouraging this attitude!

Photographically, i like the fact that this image is low-key but has a full spectrum of tones. The diagonal lines in the background and the highlights of her hair contrast with the vertical dandelion stem... and not seeing her eyes creates a nice tension, an emotion, a frozen moment
