Just thought I'd expand on what I like about this. Apart from the colours and intoxicating gaze of the model.

The main thing is the surround lighting - forgive me not my area of expertise - but I would guess a large overhead softbox - probably in the same plane as the camera. A reflector low down very slightly right of centre as we look. Rim lighting to separate the model, and just enough light on the backdrop.

The processing is superb as always - reminiscent of Jill Greenberg's work in many ways, but more subtle and to me better for it.

Yesterdays image and today's are both wonderful and I would not attempt to judge between them. I always think to judge an image the simplest thing to do is to think to yourself would I have liked to have taken this image myself? The answer has to be "YES" I would love to have taken either of the images. Smile

Black & red go well together but when lit well like this give a lucious quality. The eyes contact is strong and once again those bright catchlights lift the eyes giving great impact.
