Excellent shot, not so much for the ship it depicts (I could not guess), but for its eye for colour and form. The way lights are reflected on the pavement, and the pleasing patterns thus formed is simply "eye catching." With the title in mind, there appears another story whereby the ship's mass and power is rendered with striking exactitude even though we in an abstract rendition. Photography at its best!
Excellent capture that has the advantage of placing a nicely caught human figure in the midst of a harsh metallic background, managing in the process to bring some kind of harmony to the entire scene as the viewer's eye rest on what is obviously a restful moment in the sun's warmth. I particularly appreciate the fact that it is almost impossible to see if your subject is a man or woman, thus your shot seems to create a parody of the Garden of Eden. This takes us to another depth of understanding. Well done!
A much better shot might have resulted had you cropped slightly above the elbow. The reason I suggest this has to do with the very busy design of your model's dress. It captures too much of the image, whereas focussing on her face and indeed beautiful hair concentrates the viewer's attention. Furthermore, the tilt of her head coincides with the tilt of her left arm which in some way helps harmonize all skin colours. Regardless, I do agree, this is a "cracking portrait." Regards, Paul
Jessika's braces are visible so that my focus of attention is diverted to her lovely smile and face, yet one cannot deny the appeal of her body. in short, the success of this portrait is its ability not to break up its double aspect yet retain the warmth generated by its capture. Well-done!
Curiously interesting street shot! At least, it speaks a number of things. The eyes are wide open, but the countenance is sad, as opposed to the person who caught the photographer. Why, perhaps the snow on the ground reminds of Winter, and the spilled garbage of dirty cityscapes created by unnecessary cuts. Great shot at any rate.
Extraordinary photography! I appreciate at once the staging and the photographic technique. There is just one point that strikes me, and I'm probably the only one, the subject's head seems to be pasted on. A delicate problem to be sure, and I'm not certain as to what creates this impression. The transition from skin to silver, perhaps, so that I'm wondering if showing a little more skin colour under the chin, perhaps even to include half the neck would not solve this. Regardless, I am really impressed by your work.Regards
