Its a fantastic idea, but can't help thinking that it would have worked as one image, or two separate ones, without the overlay. Beautifully lit, beautifully set up, posed, model, MU, costume etc etc....a real cracker. But, the interlinking of the arms, in principle, is really very good. But, as it is, the larger arm looks a little dismembered, as though its not actually attached to the big Holly and sort of just come out of the body of the little Holly. Its cleverly done in terms of the processing and I am definitely not the person to be talking about that and the image and idea is quite wonderful (especially the big Holly....that is utterly gorgeous). But its not quite there, simply because of the "arm" issue for me. I could be wrong and happy to stand corrected by others and yourself, it just was the first thing that hit me when I saw it. John, your work of late has been utterly outstanding and trully beautiful and for me, this has the potential to be really, really close up there with those others....with a couple of tweaks... Wink

I like this although I can see what Johnnyboy is saying too, I think at a glance you wouldnt notice but as photographers examining other peoples work we tend to look a little closer, on closer inspection the arm does seem disembodied, however I think from a laymans point of view they would simply see a stunning image

thanks for the feedback guys - to be honest I am not sure about the linking of arms - I think it is a neat idea but just seems to miss the mark - but I appreciate knowing how everyone sees it.

I agree that the linking doesn't quite work - but it was worth the attempt! It may actually work best just to juxtapose the two views.

Two lovely images, which work well together.
