Absolutely gorgeous Bec. My only (minor) critique is that I'd like to have seen a little more light between you and the frame. The shadow is just encroaching the outer edges.

Wonderful though.

I agree with Danny on the positioning, but still a cracking image.

Thanks Danny. I hadn't thought about that. I could have easily added more space to the left with PS.

Really like this and agree with the need for a touch more space (as in mod). Thank for the mod opportunity, great fun.

I ike the crouched feelto it & how it makes you feel trapped in the space although there is plenty to the side. I do like the mod to, interesting addition

An interesting photo which is breaking compostional rules, therefore making it stand out from the crowd. I like the use of the space and the way you have positioned yourself.
The background looks like a hard surface, like a limestone floor, one you would not normally curl up on, again making it different.
I can't help feeling you look like you are stuck to a wall, like a peice of art, rather than lying on a floor. Again I like that, its different and gives the shot animation.
To me the second leg in shadow, is spoiling the clean lines, I would hve perferred it tucked in behind the front leg. I have tried a mod to address that.

Certainly very different and also original. As has already been mentioned, your legs are too close to the edge, but I know you can rectify this easily. I would also look at the bright area between your arms, I think you have missed it when masking, again an easy fix.

I really like Marks' mod with the wings, clever.

Another nice image for the portfolio.

Thanks all for the feedback & great critique.

Thanks Mark for the mod. I love it!!!!

Hi Martin, I think you are right about the positioning of the legs. If I try this shot again (I am a bit nervous to since I bent my camera hotshoe during this session), I will make sure to change the leg position. Thanks for the different mod. I wouldn't have thought to crop it that way. Yes, you've figured out what was used as the background. Smile

Hi Ian. Wow, you have a great eye to spot the masking problem. I didn't see it until you pointed it out. Thanks!

I like everything about V1. I would not change a thing.
Brilliant awkward composition with perfect colour range and an amazing vulnerability to this image.
I like the mod by Mark as well....fine art....
Great work Rebekah!!!

Very creative Rebekah. Agree with the comments re closeness to the left. Theres a slight lighter line running horizontally across the background that gives me the impression that you have slid, or rolled from right to left and were stopped by the frame edge, - which I really like, - or it might be my medication...

good composition

I love the use of space the shape a fetus position and the placing to the left, on a sea of gray
And a defined shadow in to tones the second with a soft edge
Good lighting....this is one of my favorites ...V1

I love all 3, but perhaps V3 the most.
Like within a spiral galaxy.
Well done.
