You're just like me with a very direct approach to photography. You have a subject, that is your focus. I love it. This photo espically. The 5th? Normally a face this direct with eyes looking off to the side would be offputting, but itS a feeling that works perfectly with the look. Very well done.

Wow! Very strong and vivid image. I love how her hair and headdress almost disappear into the background but not quite. And her milky white skin and penetrating eyes really finish the look. Stunning.

I get Egypt, but I also get something different in the eyes... I don't know, the eyes make this photo for me. There's some kind of conflict within her.

Miss, this is one of the most beatiful photos I have ever seen.

The models expression, the colours, the "decoration", the makeup & the colour contrast is just perfect to me. Great work from you, your team and the model!

You burned the detail where there's black, the rest ok! :)

It's stunning but the headpiece blends into the background so I can't make out what I know (from the bits I can see) must be a remarkable piece of work.

Lots of the detail in the hair and hairpiece is lost due to lack of backlight and/or the black background.
I think this shot is technically flawed. :(

Is your screen colour calibrated properly? I think I'm seeing a lot of detail that you might not be there.

I'm a photographer like yourself so calibration is very important to me

from Jingna's previous work ([link] , [link] , or [link]) , she def has the ability to lit up the hair/hairpiece if she wants, if she doesnt, like this piece or the other one on her fb [link] , i would think the details is intended to loss in the dark background. of course everyone has different preference in lighting, i dont see it as flaw but a decision an artist made.

I sincerely doubt that she intentionally lost most of that detail.

Even great artists still make mistakes. It's not uncommon :)
However everyone is entitled to their opinion and I respect yours!

I do sometimes like to think that artists do make deliberate flaws so I see where you're coming from.

On a side note... Your work is absolutely amazing. Was pleasantly surprised when I clicked on your name!
