Inspired by an old Vogue magazine cover.
The braids are actually a rope painted black and coiled around my models face.

I love the texture of the rope against the model's soft face.

Hope this does well

Post

Thanks so much to everyone who voted, commented and looked at my shot. There were so many great images in this challenge, I am thrilled to have placed so well. Thanks to my model for putting up with my crazyness. 20 feet of freshly painted black rope coiled around her face... I know it sounds exotic but it was not much fun.

Thanks again DPC!

Love this site

Coley

The concept is good. I am a bit alarmed by the eyes though. She looks un comfortable and surprised. I feel a more relaxed natural smile and inviting eyes would make this an outstanding photo.

Cool concept. Only slight problem I see is the square reflections in her eyes. They are quite distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/28/2007 08:14:41 PM
Beautiful and wonderful composition. The only thing that bothers me is the highlights in the eyes ... actually it is a bit distracting. 9.

this is just pure fun!
the model looks a bit confused though. her eyes are portraying different emotions than her lips.

08/27/2007 07:02:07 AM
brilliant idea, rope looks almost like her hair
