OK guys it is a striking picture and I admire the lighting and the pretty 
woman with engaging gaze. I like the contrast of skin
tones and the scruffy wall behind. Why does she have her skirt in her mouth?
What does the picture say to you? Does it work because it is incongruent? 
What is KC trying to say or what is the reaction he wants
to provoke? What reaction has he elicited from you?
Taken purely on content it is odd. Eye-catching but odd.
Educate me. Tell me why you are impressed.

Nothing wrong with it to my eye, I like this lighting... and the portrait.
