the girl

the girlI like this. However, if I may nit pick, the shadow on the wall bothers me. You might have moved your model farther from the wall so that shadow wouldn't reach the wall.

For Moira

For MoiraFirst of all -- Moira will love this. Second -- regarding your general use of high contrast -- I like the way you have made it your own and can create images of mystery with your signature touch. You choose your subjects accordingly -- things that work will in high contrast and a general film noire look about them.

OK -- this shot: I love it. As you say, the detail in the brick is a big part of this -- as is the diagonal vs. horizontal design of bricks and iron.
Another fine high contrast mono shot.

ShineNice shot, Mary. I do like that shine on the leaf.
Regarding having more things in focus -- I don't know if your camera allows you to adjust the aperture setting but if you can, set the aperture to a smaller opening.
The smaller opening apertures have higher numbers (e.g. an f16 is a smaller opening than an f5.6).
Anyway -- a smaller aperture results in a photo with a deeper depth of field (things remain in focus even when going deeper into the shot).

Branching Out

Branching OutYes, those curved branches are an interesting background. When you go back, you might want to use a bit of a different composition. I would move the camera to the right a bit so that your model (daughter?) isn't quite so on center.
Moving the camera down a bit might also be good. We have a lot of space above her head but we don't get to see her hand.
All that being said -- this is a wonderful shot.
I look forward to version 2. Smile

I recognized your style in the thumbnail. I think this is good. You have created something that is uniquely yours.
The frame is nice -- a physical frame similar to this will be a good way to display your art.
You have stuck a nice balance between bright splashed of color and just the right amount of hint of the female form. This is all so artistically tasteful.
Good luck with your exhibit.

The muses on the wharf

The muses on the wharfMark, this did not bomb with me. This is my kind of shot. Nicely captured.
If you want to straighten out the verticals, there is a transform function in Photoshop that should do the trick.
Write me if you need details -- however, a lot of tutorials are available on line.

DOLL COLLECTORSorry to tell you but this shot is a SUCCESS. It had me mesmerized. I love the attention to detail -- from her pose to your composition, lighting and processing.
This is a very creative shot -- and there is a story here that piques the curiosity.

The Red Bow

The Red BowFirst -- I like the steam punk -- so do bring it back before long.
Regarding this post. I like it. It is quite different from so many other adult shots -- more creative in many regards. I do like most of the lighting -- the general lighting and the back light that lights shines through her hair are very nice. However, the thin bit of rim light on her shoulders doesn't work for me. That being said -- it works very nicely on her right thigh -- creating a nice, soft sculpted look.

So -- overall I like it and encourage more.
