Very creative shot! m8. I had this pegged for a top25 for sure. Really admire what you can with your SP's.

Cool use of lighting and shadows. Nico_blue, right? Great shot.

I think the shadows are too strong. You could have added a slight light to them to make them disappear without actually lighting up the scene, depending on your shutter speed.

Good luck

I'm not crazy about the shadow on the wall, moving yourself away from it would have fixed this. But the lighting and pose are spot on.

You could crop the entire right side of the photo ad not lose anything of interest.

The title lifts this for me. Clever title

I like the lighting, posing focusing... but the background... I wonder if you had a brick background... actually, either flat white background or some of the paint on this wall fall off and you can see the bricks behind it? It's a good photo overall :)

Cool lighting. Looks like a very dramatic underware ad.

I love it. And i may try to copy it with two lights (for two wings) for the "heaven" challenge.

Interesting shadows here and I'm a big fan of off camera lighting. Definitely the way to go. Nicely done. BB

Ahh.......tongue hanging out! Very cool shadows and lighting. Is that sensor dust or spots on the wall though?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the idea alot, you could have taken advantage that this was under advanced editing and exagerate a bit more with the shadows, I think a simple bump in contrast would have made this alot more powerful!

oh wow, I didn't catch that on my first look... nice!

Nico, good to see you back at DPC. I really like your lighting and pose. Composition could be a bit tighter around your right side IMO. Nice work man.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A little more light so that we could see both eyes would be a little better, also too centered.

Great idea !

Odd lighting, since almost your whole body is lit, but your face is 1/2 in shadow.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very nice lighting, I like the centred shot and the stark background, it gives it alot of impact imo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 08:11:57 PM
like the lighting, but not the shadow created. Maybe be further from the background nextime? I don't normally like a centered composition, but it works here.

Terrific lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great job except maybe shoulda cropped into portrait orientation.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

eyes are drawn to waist, away from face = not a good thing w/ a portrait. Arm going across body divides you into two zones, and the greater contrast is in the lower half. Effective if it's a hanes ad, but not as a portrait.
