Not sure about this one Diana, the pose makes Kelly look uncomfortable to me and because she is leaning back onto the gun - which have been great props and used to excellent effect - it almost makes her look a little pot bellied. It's great that you try these things as it's the best way to find out if they work or not and I'm really enjoying your work at the moment, but this just falls short of the previous two, it still gets my vote though as it's different, hope I haven't offended Smile

I don't have a problem with the pose, the props are pretty good too. Top shot Dianna

Hmmm ok here is some constructive criticism you say you appreciate.
Firstly, I have to ask what is the point of this photo, as I do of any photo. What were you getting at.
The title puts the emphasis on the rifle, and you say you have something going on with guns. But the photo has much more emphasis on the model. The rifle is just a prop ( literally).
While we are on the rifle it seems to have 'overspray' on it.
So If I ignore the title, what were you getting at? well although she is wearing combats she has stelitoes and her trousers are undone showing her knickers. So I am thinking you are trying to make this girl look sexy, this shot is designed to titillate. If I assume this how does it measure up? Not very well I think, mainly because its such an awkward, unnatural pose. Her shoulders are back her crutch pushed forward, her neck craning forward to maintain balance. I don't think this would be many people's idea of sexy.
Please feel free to disagree with me, or point out if I am missing something that gives this shot its raison d'etre.

thanks Patters, Mark and Sarah Smile

agree with stix's observations. I assume the pose is a result of the gun being so small forcing the model to lean, making the pose unnatural and non flattering.
May be because of this pose the facial expression is not appealing.
