Digital Portrait: Letters From the Dead

Hi kids! Here's a quick digital photo i ran through my Photoshop brain for my girlfriend's website portrait.

The "dead" girl (my girlfriend ) is a real human being. The large keys and chain are props we had lying around, and all the crap around it is my usual stream-of-conciousness collaging: i dig through my crate of digital photos and layer-in anything that seems to fit the picture.

Opinions, deconstructive or otherwise, are welcome!!

Nice overall approach, although I think the goth thing is a little "has been" (although it`s being freshly recycled at the moment, I know I know...) and McKean has overdone this layerwork play a little at the end of the 90`s, especially the "poem layer"... But well, that`s only my personal taste.
Another font for the letter`s layer (a real font, instead of handwriting or a very sophisticated handwriting) would make it look much more professional; concerning the rest, I`d say leave it as it is.
