shot at home in the doorway to my balcony...
be kind...( I think I say that alot)

As far as the title goes..I kept thinking of silliness, like " I can never figure out what to wear" I settled on indecision, figured maybe it'd sound more mysterious...hope I don't get pum\melled for it!

I feel compelled to explain the odd pose...
the model ;-) had recently dislocated her elbow...she had only 10 seconds to get to the prescribed spot and strike a pose. As she went to throw her arms up, one arm would not cooperate having limited mobility.
Silly model forgot about it until it was too late...
I thought it was ok, the other shot was better but too revealing for my morality to allow. SO I am happy with this score, altho wish I had the guts to enter the other!
c'est la vie

Nice concept. Not 100% sure about the hair, feels a little "noisy" back there. Good job overall!

I can appreciate what you were trying to capture here, but for me you have not quite managed it. The silhouette is not simple enough in shape to determine the pose. I found I had to actually try and work out what is going on and this doesn't make for a great silhouette.

When you see the winners you can be certain that they will all be clear and well defined sihouettes. This was a nice idea but you need to work on the pose to make it more 'clean'.

Would love this picture if the pose was more ... don´t know... obvious?? It is not very easy to see the subject of it... But,I like how you use the light to show some of her body, nice how you frame the picture with the blue canvas..

I think the model should be posed differently. It's hard to distinguish the right arm, head and hair. Shape becomes critical when there is little detail.

Great composition. Lighting is a bit strong. Nice job bringing out the highlights around her shoulder and breast.

Nice idea! However, you should have done this from a different angle to make the shape of her body more recognizable.

I don't feel that this pose does anything for the beauty of the human body.

Nice idea and good work with the lighting. Would have been vastly better if the profile of her face was visible
