Probably my last from this series so I may as well go out with a bomb and upload a mono Wink

Thanks for all the comments and clicks on the others and especially to Phillip for the GE award and Paul for his UA, very much appreciated.

Anyway, what do you think of the mono???

Again Darren, the light is perfect, the location spot on, I like your conversion....and of course, brilliantly shot and a beautiful model. But for me, if you don't mind me saying, this isn't "quite" as successful as the previous uploads as there is something about the pose that doesn't quite work for me. It looks a little awkward and unnatural and the placement of her arm on her leg has lifted her elbow to make it look like she has a bit of a hunchback....it still has a lot of impact and I love the smile, but the pose is the thing that lets this down compared to the previous uploads....still a cracking image for all the good things, but thats not quite there for me. Would loved to have seen one from this series wit the same kind of light but with her standing up. I know the shape and pose is all about the action thing that is in Twilight, but a standing or alternative pose to a crouched one would work with this outfit and her look and the light.....but, client always knows best eh? lol! Wink Well, so they think anyway....lol! Cracking series Darren, you have a good muse here, keep hold of her and shoot agian, she is a cracker and seems like she knows what she is doing....and you have the light thing going on spot on....nice one!!!

Well I like the Brown that you've put in the eyes. I don't normally like colour with mono, but this works really well for me in this shot.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Johnny, this isn't my favourite either and for me the little smile is not actually fitting with the theme but I do quite like the image. As they are very similar I decided to try a mono and square crop and as Twilight is all about the eyes I brought back a very slight bit of colour, glad you spotted it John Smile (mind you I'm not usually a fan of selective colour myself).

Darren.
