love the tones and processing. the only niggle for me (and its a minor one) is with those shoes i'm not sure about the placement of the rear foot. and i know i am old cos i wouldnt even think about trying to stand up in those let alone walk lol.lesley

Excellent studio work. The scene is well thought out and arranged and all the elements work exceptionally well together. Andy

Even if I tried really hard I dont think I could criticise this image. It is quite beautiful and the age and style of props together with the models perfect makeup and pose work so well. Even the wooden floor and backdrop enhance the image. For me this is as close to perfection as you can get. Brilliant work

Really not for a criticsm section as you well know. First class technique and extremely high level of ability. Even name on front not too eye catching but would prefer it not there as I have to look.

I have no criticsm, I think it is beautifully staged and lit and processed. Ann

Welcome to EPZ Peter.

This is a gorgeous, well posed shot, excellent lighting.

next time you post for critique, lets know you shot settings, and is youve applied toning ad youve done her so we dont accuse you of not having the correct WB!

The only suggestion I had is to leave her face untoned as in the mod.

Everything about this is fantastic. Well deserving of all the praise and awards.
Excellent work.
I am wondering, why you use JPG and not RAW?

Excellent image but with one exception. Those shoes !!!! they dont fit the era you trying to capture. Their more like a pole dancer's kit. Tony.

Love the juxtaposition of the model's prim pose and the 'cello, the most erotic of all instruments!
