Absolutely stunning from the shoulder up. Very inspiring. I love the flower-thing being help up in front of her, but the image has little of interest below the shoulder level besides the flower. I feel like it would be better were the body turned toward the front more, or even if her body was facing away and she was looking over her shoulder.

Love the lighting, the makeup, the jewelry, the hair, all of that stuff is really awesome. I feel like the eye paint could possibly be a more flattering shape, but I couldn't say exactly what the shape is.
What do you think?

I first want to say, that you work is really impressing and some of your pieces take my breath, but I dare say that I'm afraid this one didn't,
I like the shock of the black against her "whiteness" which is enchanting, but I think you didn't go far enough,
there is almost no collor, so I think you could be more extreme in the white, anyway the combination here is fantastic, and her hair is just perfect,
the circle make it look like some kind of tree for me.
the model is beautiful, and I like the red mouth (I would prefer black)...
well, your work here (even if not my favorite) is as good as always...

I like it the way that it is... iridescent quality of the skin is great.  I understand your use of light and composition.  I think that for a photo that is almost monochromatic, there are many colors in this image.  The one thing that popped out the most is the black.  It's not black is it?  For some reason, I can't help but to think it's a really dark brown, or purple. Is it just me?
you never fail to impress. :rose:
