Punished

By gingerdelight    
A strong subject today, and not my usual type of image at all, but I thought I'd upload it to see what sort of reaction it would get. My apologies if it offends anyone at all, and if it does I will remove it.

It was actually done for a challenge and was quite well received despite it's contentious content.

PS: the model was not harmed in any way for the production of this image!

I can't see why people should object. If someone punched me in the eye I doubt I'd look as beautiful as this though.

That's fine, I understand that some people will not like it; no apology necessary at all!

I don't see a problem Carol about photography dealing with the serious issues of life.
All part and parcel about photography getting an emotional response from the viewer I reckon.
The responses here will be diluted after your explanation.
I wish you had offered no description to see what the responses would have been then !!

This sums it up exactly for what it is.
Mick makes a good point too - we'd probably be baying for blood if it were real.
Excellent image Carol and brave to attempt it.
