Good use of lighting. The vanishing fore arm detracts a little from the shot for me but otherwise a well executed capture.

A very diffeent look at the genre of Victorian silhouettes, this image is technically perfect. The technique used is stunning, although the upraised arm should be a little sharper with more detail or eliminated entirely to make the image perfet. The offset is perfect for blending into the background. Very effective from both a technical and artistic standpoint. Should place very high if not a ribbon winner. Well done.

Artistic rendition. Could have been really neat, but the graininess is distracting. Unsure whether it was intentional or not, but I fell it ruins what should have been the smoothness of her skin.
