-Me holding up a blanket in front of a plantation shuttered window using an upturned kitchen bin as a tripod with the delay timer, used a dress makers dummy to focus and then ran around like a crazy woman getting into place.

"Negative Self Image" is a very interesting shot in the Negative Image challenge. This is one image that made me come back multiple times to try and figure out what it was. So very good work on grabbing attention.

The image itself is very unusual, I was thinking it was someone in a corset. I would have never guessed how you had actually done this. You deserve some brownie points for creativity. The composition is very nice. The contrast between the subject background, gives the eye its exact focus. The only thing that stand out as a downfall is the over exposure on the right hand side. The lighting is very nice so I wonder if maybe you wanted the blown look to enhance the subject as well. Overall this is an extremely strong piece and fits the category very well.

Welcome to DPC and I have to say congratulations on your first entry, I am sure we will be seeing many great things from you.

Beautiful image, the simple shape and the colour work very well, not completely sure about the right side being over exposed, personally I'd have preferred a cleaner symmetry -8

I like the textures. I think this has good potential. The body in the lower right is merging a bit too much with the background for my taste and I would have liked to see the boning completely centered in the frame. Good job.

Interesting picture, the stripes definitly make it more interesting than it otherwise would have been.
