Advent Eve

By BrianHenry    
Advent Eve, in her innocent disposition. She wasnít created for the same reason Adam was, thus she awakens to a much different Eden.í

It was inevitable for Eve to eat the apple because she wasnít created with Adamís same devotion to The Lordís instruction. Because she was easily influenced by the serpent shows her ability to make choices that Adam might not have been capable of making. Eve was able to transcend, but with consequences. In the photograph, she awakens for the first time, in a wool blanket. An animal fur rug lays on the floor across from her, not only alluding to her son becoming a Shepard but also the idea of both of her sonís engagement with sin is consequently inherited from her. A halo is yet fashioned for her out of a pillow, as a sign of innocence within her intentions.

Interesting idea, original use of portrait, good angle, and a lot of thought; but whatever the story there's too much going on in the frame for my eye. The bearskin rug, the bit of something or other peeping in on the right with its shadow, the cut-off circle at the bottom, the beginning of another duvet below hers... Too much detail can reduce rather than increase the narrative. I want a cleaner, simpler composition.

I like it. I think it looks better rotated 90 ccw; cropped but keep that post/pipe; reduce highlights on the towel and her leg; mod uploaded. The angle for me makes me want to rotate my head!

A nice exposure, great model.

The narative is possibly not needed in a critique section and it means little to me. Nice in many ways but your light source is giving some flare in the shiny wood. I would crop it off at the bottom as there is wasted space there, but it is a bit bright at the edge of the sheep skin at the top. You are obviously using flash or a continuous light source and the angles could be changed a bit.
