Critique by Ronover Jun 26, 2013, 7:29:27 PM
(gasp)

I am astonished at the beauty of this photograph. The shape molded by the flowers, the model and the directional flow of the whole... I am aghast at how the whole image comes together.

The piece makes me feel as if the character is that of a sleeping beauty. The sense of purity flows throughout the model and the touches of purple and red emphasizes that she is alive, rather than dead and silent.

I love how it catches my eyes right away and how the flowers lead me to the model's face and stance. The curves and shapes give it a strong lustrous touch.

My only critique is that the right side of the image feels slightly a bit busier than the other side, making it feel a bit lopsided (due to the flowers). Furthermore, the idea of the beauty surrounded by her flowers is a bit done here and there...however, I can clearly tell it has a bit more "Zemotion" than anything else.

Love it. Keep strong! Keep shooting!

Reminds me of the John Waterhouse Ophelia painting. This is stunning, stylised and still. The oval framing works very well.

This photograph is honestly impressive; the composition, expression it conveys, the silent drama, the lighting, the props...everything is right. Very well styled and executed. I'd like to think she's admid a halo of flowers.
