First of all, I would like to say this is amazing.
It's an amazing concept, though not the most original.
I love how the colors of the background, hair and the clothing tie in together.
Outside the shattered glass being blurry and inside being clear creates an amazing impact. It's a bit like saying that even though you're broken, you can see clearer? Maybe I'm just reading into it to much XD
The pose is AMAZING! I love how she's standing up tall, and floating a bit. A lot of other people who had this idea might have the model in a dark corner curled up in a ball or something, and dark, always dark. Maybe some shattered glass at the feet, with some blood. But this picture sort of says 'even though something went wrong, doesn't mean everything's over. There's still light, still hope,'
I hope I'm not reading into it to much.
Anyway, great job!

The title expands upon the effects of the visual imagery, as if the symmetry is being broken also by the sporadic scattering of the glass in front. It could use some burning in order to really enhance the somber, melancholy concept, but then again the airiness of this, the lightness seems to suggest a sense of overcoming.

... Caught in between she was. Head turned left, exposing defenseless neck, so vulnerably trying to get away from pain. Eyes closed, in attempt to avoid blinding light of accusation?.. Her lips are pressed in thin line of determination, yet the picture of motives is blurred... Obscure, but her hands are at ease, not clenched with repressed hatred. Caught in between she was. Her feet froze in the motion, carving the message of "moving on" through unclear glass of doubts. Shattering, she was breaking the cocoon of stereotypes and conviction, letting inner freedom cast away the shards of limits. She was broken before, but now becomes whole and clear, unlike the blurry glass of society she dwells in. She basks, ascending the path, guided by her light. Soon, she will be complete...
