Not a totally bad shot, but the HUGE head right behind her is a bit too distracting for me :(

I think a better smaller DOF would have made the shot a bit nicer, but i like the exposure and outfit and model!

Nice work


He still has one more move.

I think maybe standing in front of the head leaning forward about to plant a kiss on the lions nose would have made a great shot IMHO. That said, I think it's ok.

Thanks for the comments.

The shot was planned as is, centered, symetrical, domination of the woman over the beast, therefore her pose.

I find myself studying the lion instead of her. I am not sure but I do not think that was your goal.

Thanks everyone for commenting.

I see, I didn't reach my goal entirely, the picture is as I wanted it to be, but the other part, that people can see what I meant to express, hasn't been achieved.
In my opinion, that part is very important, that's why I post the pictures without comments in the first place to see what people think about and how they interpret the picture.
That part failed completely because no one saw what I wanted to show. I guess I still have a lot to do, but that's ok for me, my primary goal is to learn (and there's still a lot to learn)

If the beast is important to the photo it should not be in the background. shoot from in front of the beast. both her and the beast facing the camera. she should be higher than the beast with her hand on it, to show control over the beast. You should be shooting up at her to give her a powerful look. this may give you the look you want or it may be junk because the beast is a statue and people think "statue" not "beast". worht a shot I guess.

interesting idea, I'll give it a shot next time I pass near that place, thanks
