strange photo. the lighting reminds me of old Hollywood glamour - greta Garbo comes to mind - but then there's a lot of "A clockwork Orange" in this as well

Koen, I suspect it's because I had like ten completely different ideas for this one and couldn't really decide which way to go with it, lol.
But first of all I was after something untypical and quite freaky, so association with A Clockwork Orange doesn't sound surprising Wink

Love the colour in v1 and the eye makeup design.

Milla, I keep going back and having another look, somethings been niggling me about the shot and couldn't work out what.

I've just copied the large large version and messed in P.S and then it hit me, its too light, IMHO.

I tweaked the levels to darken and the shot is then a true Milla, dark and and mysterious.

Have a go and see what you think.

P.S Still a cracking shot.

Thanks everyone and sorry for not being around recently, it's been a long and pretty much hectic weekend, glad it's finally over.

DaveGu, lol! That's one of these very rare cases when I decided not to darken the shot, and look what you say! Grin
Uploaded 3rd version darkened as you suggested, not too sure about it though. But then again I'm not sure about the shot itself any longer, starting to think I've seriously been raving in the fever or so...

Great work Milla; it's a little too weird and disturbing for my personal taste and leaves me too uncomfortable to say that I like it, but I'm guessing you'd see that as a success Smile

Okay Milla, I like this loads. I'm with Mr K. Belgiks-doo-dah-what's-it on Hollywood glam meets A. Burgess/S. Kubric. It's intense and educated and Lucretia's 'strength to strength' comment is well deserved. But ... the position of your light source has given you a sort of pirate's patch (that looks like it's slipped) over your right eye. Once I saw that, I couldn't stop noticing it. BTW, I know I'm a sort of grunge photographer, which is my excuse (LOL) for having distracting elements in my shots. Keep the images coming! Regards. Edmund.
