I like it. Nice composition. You wonder who she is looking at/talking to . . .

And you've handled the awful lighting pretty well.


Cheers, Damien

I'd prefer a closer crop... the stuff on the left is distracting.

I like this photo a lot. Very pretty. Very candid. However, I wonder how it would look with less saturation.

Not by much. I bumped SAT +7 in LR and then brought down yellows in PS for aboooout 10. There's red light behind her chair and the lamp is seriously yellow :D

On crop: sir! Are you suggesting to crop out the lamp and vase!?!?!? Blasphemy! :D

Nice composition. It's also nice that you throw some color at us from time to time. It doesn't look like a candid to me. Was she posing for you or looking at a 10 foot tall fellow?

Posing. I'll post a whole set soon as well. B/W mostly, though ;]

I like it a lot, the crop and the colors work fine for me. I'd also love to see it as a contrasty black & white. :) Well done!

Not my style of photography, but well done. It would be edgier in B&W. Crop from left? I wouldn't. However, you could have moved the furniture in front of the model and to her left. Nice perspective - the leg and arm in the front are not disproportionally large - no distortion.

Thanks! But I must say, that those chairs there are on purpose, but I guess it might work without them as well.

Thanks! But I must say, that those chairs there are on purpose . . . . .

Yeah, no kidding. Of course they're there on purpose! And their arrangement is absolutely genius! Seriously, the way each chair is placed is absolutely perfect in its use to create the overall aesthetic. From the fact that the chair in the lower right corner of the frame is so close so as to be thrown out of focus, to the way the light is falling on the chair in the lower left corner, to the way the chair's arm is overlapping the bottom of the vase . . . . everything looks to be aligned in such a very perfect fashion - I am amazed!

This reminds me so very much of the compositions that Eggleston would create, with each and every thing in the frame being so carefully thought through and arranged so meticulously.

I especially appreciate the way that the flowers in the vase are leaning outward, toward the edge of the frame, and how that mirrors the way that the model is also leaning out towards the opposing edge of the frame. What a unique way to use symmetry and balance in your composition!

The one thing - and it is quite an outstanding thing - that I feel detracts from the image is the intensity of the red color on the right edge of the frame. It is so incohesive with everything else in the frame, and is such an intense concentration of such vivid colour that it cannot help but to steal the viewer's attention away from the wonderfully posed subject and the immaculately positioned props that support her. If it were possible to tone that red color way, way down, so that it didn't stand out nearly so much, then I think you have an image here that is something very, very special.

You, sir, are an absolute genius. I find it hard to believe that this image is from the same person who authored that mumbling, bumbling post last week.

Olaf would probably fit in with Andy Warhol and the factory crew, you either get it/like it or you don't!
Not everyones cup of tea, but definitely art.

Guys, my ego bloated so much, that pushed out of the sofa my cat, who was sitting right next to me. Thank you!

P.S. Tom... that's were's the fun is! :D Well, making this image was also fun, but that previous fun was a different fun. I abso-bloody-lutely promise, that you will see such posts in the future /although I do understand, than some folks will not like them/. Not often though. Not often at all, otherwise I'll see a divorce papers to sign, hahah.

That other post, I liked it - I really did! I just didn't understand it. At all. And I wanted to. I so very much wanted to understand it! But the images there were really cool looking.

Osh, I hope that you continue to produce both types of posts!

I, too, like this photo very much. I do have a nit. Her shoe is too shiny.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.
