I was running up the stairs and caught myself in the mirror that sits on the desk in the living room. I madly started taking down artwork, and accessories, all but the old weathered candlepost. I set the camera on the tripod and did a 10 second timer and ran and jumped back up on the stairs. So this is aactually the reflection in that mirror. Of about 25 images,this is my favorite of the group. I hope you like it.

I love the warmth and the abundance of curves. Very pleasing and mildly erotic, without going overboard. Very nice.

Excellent image - very strong composition.

Your model cuts a fine figure too!

Really nice. Good to spot this one and take the time to set it up. You show me that turing the figure away can be very effective. Framing only half the head also is contributing in my opinion. Thanks for sharing.

Always liked this one. The negative space to highlight that window of view is great. The color combinations are fantastic. The way the hour-glass shaped post matches your figure is a nice touch too.

I meant to comment on this one during the challenge, it is a very beautiful photograph. The colors and tones are very nice, as is the offset composition.

Maybe it was easier than it looked to get in position, but I sure would like to be a fly on the wall, watching you trying to beat the timer.

I wish the balluster wasn't squeezed out tof the frame on the left, but the use of empty space on the right is great, the shadow controll on the model's back is quite fine and the colors and lighting create a tranquil fluid look that ought to score right up there in a particularly tough challenge.

I think the crop is too far left and too much dead space on the right side
  Photographer found comment helpful.

It's a very nice image and I hope it does really well for you. Infact I showed it to my wife and explained how clever it was to shoot the reflection in the mirror. It gives the illusion of light at the end of a dark hallway. One minor thing I personally would've changed, (had it been me), would have been stronger backlighting,(infront of you), to provide a more detailed silhouette of your legs and bum,( can I say that word?), through the dress.

Interesting composition. Placing the subject off-center like this has created the effect of a balanced, rectangular image. Tiny details like a softer light and a slightly more relaxed pose might have made it a little better; but I think it's really nice.

Oh, very nice. This is sensual but not not over done. I like the archway framing the woman. Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is terrific; surreal, sexy, mysterious,the lighting, the colorsof flesh and stucco playing off each other... its got all those great qualities and perhaps its a bit voyueristic for the viewer, which ultimately could heighten the experience. great negative space too; its so frequently done so terribly wrong and unnecessary, its great to see it used so successfully. this shoud ribbon. good luck.

Interesting picture, I think I would have liked a slightly different crop, as the eye is lead entirely to black spacel.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/09/2006 12:29:28 AM
A really classy photo you got here. The negative space on the right is perfectly suited to all the drama unfolding on the left. The light is perfect, the skin tones compatible with the surroundings. You have a real winner with this. I love it.

Stunning... This is just beautiful. Soft and lovely and really screams of a story. Great job.

Wow!!! This is such a striking beautiful photo!! It has a wonderful feel to it where you could see it hanging over a fireplace in a huge format to add class and elegance to a room. The ever-so-slight soft look to it adds to it even more! One of my favorites here! 10

EXCELLENT use of negative space. I love how the curves of the column on the left are similar to the graceful lines of the model.
