The sensuality in this picture is palpable. Anticipation? No, the lingering impact of an incredible night. The mussed sheets, pillow case nearly torn off, the composition of the room is just enough to accent the mood set by your model, and draw attention to her. This is all deliberate clearly and for that I give you your vision rating. The originality suffers, because frankly it's just been done before. Your technique is spot, it's a beautiful B&W with a subtle vignette. The impact was strong from the get go, the scene comes together beautifully, model, set, and the photograph itself meld to create the picture of sensuality. The only thing I could say as far as increasing that would be a slight tilt up of the head of your model, enough to catch a look in her eyes, have her gaze longingly off the side of the shot, or alternatively a tilt down and to the left/right to catch one revealed eye, and have the other concealed with her hair, I think that slight touch could have pushed the image over the edge. All in all, wonderfully done , I tip my hat to you.
The perspective, the depth, how she's posed, how her hair falls, the sheets actually keep catching my eye (funny, yeah I know), the bars at the foot of the bed, the curve of her spine, how her hands are placed, the odd selective focus, many other things. I could point out a thousand shots on DA that really are just 'titty pictures' and this isn't one of them.
I love B&W photos. One of the things I like best about this photo is the soft focus. It softens the edges of the photo, giving it a vaguely dream-like quality. The muted lighting draws beautiful shadows. The model is stunning and very expressive. A very beautiful photo.
The crumpled bedsheets and blanket of a world in turmoil... with the smooth lines of the model portraying hope and strength in a center of corruption.... a contrast that brings peace to the heart of the viewer... I love it!
Scarily? Really? That bad? So you're saying you're concerned? Or are you just taking a jab at thinner women like many do that is as fickle and rude as pointing out overweight "flaws" on someone? Female models can never win. The same people who point out they are too thin (who usually don't seem to know what anorexia actually looks like) will instantly point out the smallest pocket of cellulite on the same model. What was your point of sharing "scarily thin?"
Scarily skinny with butt bones you find freaky. Those are negative things not up to your par (or opinion). You are stating what you think are flaws in other words. Sure, you can write whatever you like. I don't personally care if you like this or not. But don't you think you might come across as rude?
I know. But your opinion offered nothing artistic. Rather, you just more or less insulted her appearance (for whatever reason) and are passing it as a valid point because people give opinions of others' art on Deviant Art. Let me ask you what you would do to improve this picture. Or are thin subjects simply not allowed to be found as artistic and should be eliminated from history? That's what your comments imply. Would you also say that a model looks "scarily fat" because her big frame and butt freaks you out? I have a feeling you'd find that offensive if someone said that and just said it's their opinion, even though the picture would be from someone who clearly knows photography. Though, you'll probably save face and say, "Yeah, sure, of course someone can point out how someone is fat and freaky because that's their opinion," right?
All you basically said was that you don't like this because she's thin. You didn't say it's not allowed, it's not artistic, or porn as most do. You didn't tell them to post it on Tumblr instead. I even think you know it was taken by a professional. That's fine you think she's too thin and you don't like it and all but why even share it? I'm betting you'd be annoyed if you got several people saying nothing more than "I don't like it, looks freaky!" on your artworks.
