    This is a very fascinating concept, composition and POV. I like the scale, placement and cropping of of the plastic cup. I find the array of possible narratives fascinating. I wonder if the clothing label says roshambo. Compositionally I like how the downward tilting curved rings around the top of the cup align with the upper arm on the right side of the image creating a visual counter weight to the downward left tilting slats that function as a visual stop to the simulated depth of the picture plane. I like how the table edge is tilted left while the surface slats produce a vanishing point at the base of the neck where the low light on the throat fans upward, emphasizing the ever so slightly turned up face with closed mouth, open nostrils, and blocked eyes. The reflection on the cup side also leads the eye to this point. Yet the cup of (perhaps wine?) liquid seems just as personified as the the main character...the antagonist. The earrings and the light reflected by them work nicely with the light just inside the lower portion of the shoulder straps.
