Dressed up a model in a few coats and made her hold a basket of random junk. Calculations to b/w, multiply on red and green channels. Then I dodged the shadowed walls to make them more interesting to look at.

A pale imitation of the master, but instructive.

A model? You used a model?? Ah, I'll forgive you. The lovely balance between light and shadow makes the location worthy of stuffing a model in there.

Critique Club Here!

This is funny to me that I got your image as my second one. I've always been unsure that I understood your vision with your photograpy but every once in a while you have one that stikes a cord with me. Oddly enough, this is one of those images.

My immediate reaction when looking at the image was much like all the commenters, I was struck by the light and the way it frames your subject. Also we see a nice use of the rule of thirds. It seems like the b&w conversion could have just a tad more punch to it, but not enough that I think it takes way from the image.

The one thing that really jumps out to me that I would change about this image is the models stance. I would not have said this were it a candid but since you set up the shot, I really think being able to see the side of the models face perhaps having them walk by the wall a few times and catching them in stride would have really given it that feel of catching someone going about the mundane duties if their life. That, to me anyway, is really the essence of many of Jagar's shots.

Overall I really enjoy this image and you got a fairly decent spread from the voters. I think they can be pretty harsh when they are expecting you to imitate someone. Nice work. :)

You fooled me... nothing pale in sight. Love it.

Lawrence of Arabia as an old man retracing his steps. Quite haunting.

I thought this wonderfully peculiar, possessed of an odd sort of kinetic energy. And now, hilariously, I see that I was right.

Thought this would do better - stoopid auto correct on my iPad. - you realise that should have said light :)

This is good stuff. Should have scored higher just on content alone.

Beautiful capture. The way the light splits the shadow and highlights the woman is perfect!

You caught her right in that light, well done.
