Go Large for ultimate TRAP factor

Thanks for the clicks and comments on FOR SALE Smile
I just canít help myself from time to time to go test myself with light at night, so the urge took me out last night to an old disused lorry yard with a few models. I found an aluminium box on the side of a lorry which provided a great prop and frame. I used the flash remotely to get the glow in the small box.
I love that D300, best thing I ever bought Smile 10mm ISO 200 SS 0.6 sec

This is Peggy, a great fun young model in a rather unpleasant lorry yard at about 11.00pm, a first for her, didnít she do well?

Thanks as always Smile

This is better than yesterday's shot which I also liked. This gives new meaning to the phrase "being cornered" - even the comp is in a corner.
Can't wait to see what's coming up next. You've a fab imagination.

This is brilliant, the lighting exposure, composition are spot on.
The only slight niggle (sorry) is the bottom right it might have been better slightly cropped to get a clean edge.
Otherwise cracking EC material

morning, thanks Pepes Smile

John I thought about that bit at the bottom if I cloned it the box loses its shape and it I crop it more I would cut her feet off, it is just the angle of the box but thanks Smile

A cracking shot - a very effective and eye-catching image.
Re John's comment above, it is sometimes the little things that draw your eye away from the main subject - which would be a shame in a shot as good as this. You could just crop a little bit off the right hand side to lose that slightly distracting angle without losing her foot or the reflection of her hand.

Thanks very much everyone for the C&C's on this one

I have cloned the allie as suggested by John and Jean, but for me the original works cos of the shape of the box

Something really strange has just happened. I wrote a great long speil about how this picture worked for me and it just disappeared,; a bit like the model who looks as if he world is caving in.Smile
Anyway Dianna I'm giving you my award, much rarer than ECs or even POTW because it really grabbed me straight from the thumbnail. It doesn't come with a fabulous prize but I hope you can put it on your cyber shelf.

Dianna I agree with you the original is better it shows that Peggy is in a box and that's what the shot is all about.
Thanks for humouring me x
