that is my favorite so far, i guess. it would be great if the scenery was set up even nicer, no distracting stuff in the background, you know.... but overall, you're very pretty to look at, thanks for sharing
mweh, hating on it maybe too much. But I can't say this shot is half as good as some people say. This picture looks like it had no preparation at all. you say it has intentional form colour and contrast. The lightning is too strong, making it look a bit cheap. It would be better if it would be softer, so that it strokes the contours of the model rather then overflow it. Composition wise it isn't great either. the background is very distracting. Lets look at 2 basic rules for composition. rule of thirds? nope not in this picture, due to the subject being in the perfect middle, all cross-sections miss the model. it does however hit the blue plastic bag on the left. not to mention the bag is better in focus then the model. Golden ratio perhaps? not even close. Don't get me wrong, you can have a good middle-composition. but combined with the focus, the lightning, and the stage-setup. no. This model has some very tasteful and good pictures in her gallery, but this isnt one of them. Don't have to hate. but it doesnt deserve the love it gets either.
