This was my favourite shot of the day on a photoshoot with model Laura in November last year. My partner John was taking photos of her with this white mask, I wasn't planning on taking any at that time but then I snapped a single one, this one. Hated it on the camera, got it on the PC and as it turned out, I loved it, haha. Laura is a fabulous model, a lovely person, someone my partner and I could shoot again and again (and plan to.) The double lamp was the light source. I applied a blue filter to the image as I felt it didn't entirely suit the original tones.

This will either be loved or hated, I'm expecting it to pretty much die a quick death, lol.

I'm not sure what you were going for here, but between the soft focus the odd color and the confusing subject, I can't say that I like it.

OK. That's a bit scary. Nice use of white / black and grey tones in a color picture. Makes one wonder why the mask?

This is a very intriguing image. Very different from what we come to expect on DPC. Love the toning

Physical attraction and fear of the unknown, two edges to the same blade.
And a postprocessing with the right intent to keep them both sharp.

If I see a stranger photo for this challenge, I'll come back and make a comment. For now, you win the "Scales' Strangest Photo Award" which I just made up for this image.

That light, the shape and intensity, makes the shot for me, makes it more mysterious.

Dark and mysterious. The angle of the shoulder is distracting.

Oh that's wickedly good! I like everything about it; it's a brilliant parody of itself. And I love that negligent, 'after-midnight' blue cast to it. As if you have discounted the light. Thank you. 7.
