Excellent creativity and photography Nick. The subtle expression on the models face is really good. Beautifully processed as well.

It's good, really good. The arch expression is the main thing. To my mind just the trickle of blood from the suitcase, no hand, would be darker as less obvious. I shall look at my own suitcases slightly differently in future.

I much prefer this this to the rather more fussy set ups. More enigmatic. we have to make up the story ourselves with this one.

Thanks everyone Smile. Janet recognise that background Wink ?

Big thanks Willie for the User Award. I'm glad you picked up on the expression, it's something Letty and I worked on for some time, as this was exactly the expression I wanted. Processing this was relatively straight forward, but the little finesses took ages to get right.

Great idea. Daves right about the knife. The only thing that bugs me because everything has to hang true for me, is that the case is shut but a hand is hanging out. Twenty years of being paid to spot what is 'off' makes me a bit pedantic.
Now if the case was half closed on this side with an arm poking through
Everything else is spot on. ....actually after reading the sign on the wall this could have been so much darker. Wink

Thanks everyone, and a big thaks Pete for the sticker.

Dave / Keith I actually tried this without the knife / hand as that was the image I had in mind. The problem is it just looked empty. But I take your point The message on the wall is there for a reason Keith Wink so it may be much darker.

One constraint I have is Letty (the model) has to be completely happy with the image as she wants a print. Although this was never going to be anything other than disturbing.

At some stage I'm wanting to do more images that challange, make you think...

..now typing this I know what I need to do to this, but boy is that disturbing.. (god knows what Freud would make of it)

Oh and Keith I dont care if its pedantic or not I much prefer that type of reply
