What a stunning image - not sure what the brief was (just a portrait?) but this is lovely. Just a niggling observation the portrait has a beautiful 'old world' charm - the lattice leaded windows and the girls dress and her look, all add to this - but her finger nails are too modern (I think)!!
Yes I agree with Salopian - there is a softness to the image that isn't really helpful. I think the overall composition can be helped by cropping using the lovely meandering fencing that echo's the coastline in the distance as your lead in - this makes the image much stronger visually (it leads the eye through the landscape).
Umm - for me this is great narrative there is a story here and quite a scary one I would wager - the benevolent smile on the rolly toy hides an awful secret - and just what is the frieze all about?
Well cool - such an amazing sense of menance and the bg looks just as if there is some massive fire burning away - the two main faces look extremely anxious which is wonderful and really adds to the menace - the title tees up the image nicely and really starts the story telling process before the image is even seen.
An excellent macro - personally I don't mind the hints of flora around the bottom of the frame - it provides a context and prevents the image becoming too much of a library shot. Stunning detail with good sharpness across the subject (it may get a little soft lhs but not a real problem).
What a very cool shot - the lighting is spot just enough to pick out the spider detail. Like the slightly threatening but featureless bg which serves to really set the subject up.
