this was an unplanned shoot in my dinning room.... and this meant the use of two desk lamps strategically placed. the model didnt want her face to give away her identity and this made for some interesting results. when i first took this shot i loved it for the interesting d.o.f... and hated it for its imperfections... but the things that i thought were wrong made it the most interesting!

-->side note* it seems that this image is attracting a lot of "views" and im not really sure why...? but i would love more feedback on this image or any of my others!

I like this a lot: all those limbs and digits, and the bonus of an unexplained electrical outlet for a bit of whimsical symbolism. I like it when people dare to use their camera for something beyond being 'a photographer'. Thank you. Please accept an Order of the Thumb (no acceptance speech is necessary).

Lots of interesting details here -- all painting a dark if not sad picture. Well done.

Love that it appears she's plugged in, but the power is off

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: A brave FS image - I like that. The eclectic point of view, off-square composition and flat tones makes this image brood quite darkly - again, I like that. The power outlet and the gritty detailed floor add to the authentic feel.

Critical stuff: Not an image to be enjoyed (but to be appreciated)

Overall: An image I can appreciate!
