I find this a very striking image and strong initial appeal. I like the general lighting and colouring with good separation from the background.
I am struck by the strong lines and mixture of black and skin colours.
I find the overall image is sensual, beautiful, intriguing, provocative and challenging.
Looking at the image in more detail, I look at the face and the expression which is not immeditately clear, but my eye is continually drawn to the body, legs and crotch before returning to the face to try and work out what is going on.
There seems to be a definate confident, looking at or interest in something maybe with a hint of worry or concern?
Then looking down the the open leg pose with gorgeous legs, shapes and curves, very womanly, sexy, sensual; they speak of being very comfortable, relaxed and confident, which works against and submissive position from being low down.
However this seems to conflict with the bust which seems to be mishapen, distorted, very uncomfortable and almost cruel with the tighness of the cups pushing into the breasts pushing them up and out for presentation.
The image does not come across as submissive or dominant but not does is seem neutral so I find it intriguing but very attractive to look at because of the shapes, expression and beauty of it.
I would appreciate some context to enable me to make sense of it but then maybe the lack of sense is part of its appeal to me.
The subject looks stunningly beautiful and this images certainly leaves me wanting to see more of her in a series of different looks and poses.
Technically I like the lighting giving strong shadows but with a softness that reveals the beautiful shapes and curves. I like the close cropping which intensifies the image and like the depth.
The one thing I would consider changing is her left arm/elbow - it seems to be an un-natural angle not in keeping with the rest of the image.
Hi ... Meluxine...!!! Your Fantastic Art work Provocateur is featured in Action-Portraits...!!! if you don't mind... best regards .....................You're most welcome in Action-Portraits...!!! [link]
I love the expression above all, it's very fierce and powerful and really matches the clothes and the lighting. Love the colcours used, they really kinda fit with the leather, making this interesting contrast. The picture is beautiful
I think it is exceptionally hard to master elegance, even with its modern spin, this piece is quite alluring.
I find the lighting is next to perfect, the overall concept, position and demeanour is enticing as is the model (which I believe is yourself from the description) you should most certainly get in front of the camera more, because you are quite striking and naturally beautiful.
The overall look is amazing, simple & elegant, with enough naughty thrown in for a good flavor. What I really like is your facial expression. Taking the photo and that look, it makes one wonder what the story outside the frame is. There is no fear, the overal position doesn;t suggest submision, but rather invitation, but there's no raw "come get it" in there either. It's as if there's some latent energy inside the huntress, waiting to see if her mate will come to her, or her prey makes the wrong move (or right one, depends on your point of view).
Yet I feel the pose is not the best for you : you're so tall (I thinkl!), and have such long lines! To have them all bunched up like this is not the best way to show you. Perhaps including the feet in the frame would have been better, and enhanced the aspect.
The expression and lighting of the face are what I love about this. The suberb eyes, lifting up high! I wonder if there is a picture from above! Now that would be a shot to see!
