First of all, I am not a professional, juat an enthusiastic beginner, who is a big fan of your artworks. But since you've requested a critique, I give you my opinion about this one.
I really like this idea, and the way of executing it.
This give me the feeling of dying (because of the composition and light) and at the same time some dreamy feelings too (because of the pose and that the model is not touching the ground).
Being an anonymous model is a very interesting and strong approach, which adds a bit more sense too.
The way you executed your idea, is simply perfect, so I don't have much to say about the technique.
To sum up: It's a great example on how a photo can give a lot of thoughts when one look at it.
What do you think?

The formality of the lines in contrast with the movement of the body creates a beautiful narrative, lovely light too.

phénoménologique
Adjectif singulier invariant en genre
(philosophie) relatif à la phénoménologie, méthode cherchant à découvrir l'essence absolue des êtres et les structures transcendantes de la conscience

Je suis d'accord ce nu conceptuel est transcendant...

C'est drôle, il a atteint son objectif.
Ajouter de la profondeur à son image rien qu'avec un titre. Il n'y a aucun sens caché, aucune "pensée" relative à cette photo. Il l'a dit lui-même.

Is it heavily inspired by the philosopical phenomenology movement? I didn't actually know what that term meant until I had Google define it. Haha.

The shadow of her foot is perfect. I don't know if you planned it that way. When I look at this picture I see her shadow staying on the earth and her body leaving. Very niceeeee

Holy crap. The reflecting skin tone on the wall is aaaaaaawesome. Also, I love the lighting, especially the sunlight striking the wall around the shadow... its fantastical.
