my wording in my last message was too harsh. your style is your style and the photo is attractive. it isn't anything like what i've seen Bernard do and i didn't word it correctly. i am sorry.

i've taken three workshops with Bernard and produced three for him. i don't think that the photograph is anywhere near his style. the books are glaringly white and the leg of the women is too indistinct. i don't think that the photograph pays him very much homage.

From what I've googled of Plossu, he creates striking abstract patterns, unlike what you've achieved here. I do, however, like your photograph for its own merits. The cutting off of the head to be replaced by a pile of books is simply brilliant.

I like the anonimity(?) of the cut off head.
I even like the too dark shadows by her legs and the blown out whites of the books.
strange that.
good work and good luck.

I love the mysterious feel of this image straight of out a Hitchcock movie set it seems. The BW and the frame really completes the success of this image. A bit dark at the lower left corner but I don't seem to mind.

Has nice dark, rich tones like the referenced photographer. Maybe a bit too much light on the books but overall a pleasing composition!

Has an interesting feel, but lighting seems to obscure too much of her, while the books are well illuminated and sharp, drawing the eye away from her.

Very chic. I love the dark contrast and the sexy line of the leg. Excellent.
