Challenge: Off With Their Head! (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Challenges 2012
Camera: Canon EOS-7D
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
Date: Apr 11, 2012
Aperture: 8.0
ISO: 320
Shutter: 1/60
Date Uploaded: Apr 12, 2012

My attempt to comment on the body image we all aim for but really rarely achieve, particularly when you get to be a certain age...

Probably about time for Susan to head off into the sunset and find a new photog to hang with, so I figured I'd best get a few more shots featuring her. And she is very patient...

By the way, I don't normally enter two such similar shots as this one and the one for Grunge, so apologies for that. This was indeed shot for the challenge, though!

And thanks very much for all the comments!!

Congrats on your HM. I was one of your 10's (can't believe I didn't comment). I adore this!

Congrats, Deb! Has Susan ever mentioned how she's always wanted to visit Seattle?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/23/2012 12:30:05 AM
Hands off Ben, she's mine. A fine picture Deb and one a lot of people can relate to.

Thought provoking, love it.

Trouble with mannequins is you give them a bit of exposure and they just want more . . this time she's not even sharing the picture :-)

Useful handhold though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/22/2012 02:20:27 PM
Perhaps Susan should be headless also :) Wonderful B&W and light!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/22/2012 10:06:18 AM
Priceless; love the hand texture compared to the mannequin, it tells a story.

Melethia image and its another cracker.

More than just the requisite crop. Well thought out. Rewarding.

Lots of impact, great composition.

love that Larus hand placement. I couldn't possibly vote on this, but I love it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/21/2012 07:42:39 AM
LOL Melethia 2 entries at the same shoot very nice :)

This shot is not as strong as the other one IMO and the light looks to have gone a little flat.

Score: 5

I like the B&W tones and the window lighting. Not sure I understand the purpose of the figure being held.

An evocative image which speaks volumes that cannot be written in this comment box. I gave this image a 10 earlier this week and am returning to comment. Hope this one does well for you. ;-)

Very interesting image. Susan looks almost demure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2012 12:29:02 PM
I like the B&W treatment and the rectangle of light across the subject, all in all an interesting setup, the only tiny little critical thing for me is the plant hanging down into the frame from the top, it does cast a nice shadow but it's a little distracting for me, not much really.. :)

Ah, youth wasted on the young!

Deb? This is really really great!

Nothing says you can't shoot the same subject for multiple challenges.
good thing i'm voting here before the grunge scores are displayed to keep it anonymous :)

Adore the echo of armlessness, Deb. Such a splendid image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2012 12:25:22 PM
Thought provoking shot. Lovely tones and I like the window of light over your main subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2012 08:47:05 AM
Oh there she is. I like how you made the woman in the tie dyed skirt also have her left arm "missing". Perfect composition. I have almost that same skirt. I'll bring it out and wear it in honor of this fine image. ;)
