Song to the Siren VII by zemotion Song to the Siren VII by zemotion, Aug 2012

I got to collaborate with *harlequinromantique! Omg omg she was sooooo nice and sent me so much awesome jewelry I could use for the shoot and they were all so pretty *fangirl gush*

Been a long time since I used sand in the studio! We had about 500-600kg of it, setup and teardown was such a pain but so worth it for the concept I think. Thank you SingaporeBrides for the support~! :heart:

I love the feel of this picture first of all and I am a huge fan of your photography so please do not get me wrong i am only giving my own view on what could be improved. I am not a photographer expert.

The setting is gorgeous.

What bugs me a little about this picture is the fact the left girl outshines the the girl on the right. They are both beautiful girsl but the left girl seems to steal the limelight. I think it would have been better if the girl on the right didn't look straight in the camera. The light that shimmers on their skin is for me in some places a bit too much, making the body parts in the shadow looking a bit like they float in space or something. The depth is maybe just a bit too much, i get the feeling for example that both girls have immensly long space between their shoulders and their necks. The hand of the girl on the left looks loose from her body. After staring at the picture for a while I get it, but at first look it looked a bit off.

I also think the hair on the girl on the right could be a bit more contrasted with the background. I don't know if it was your vision to make it fade into the background but it does and yet on the same time it doesn't.

as i said, I love your pictures and i am a great fan of your work. These are only very minor details but i wanted to tell you anyway. Even the best have room to improve i always say.

It's quite nice.
A lovely photo.
Though I like how the model in the foreground has a lovely angle going for her face, it doesn't do as much justice for her dress.
It's a bit odd, that are by her chest and side, the dress looks interesting, but it takes slightly away from the overall ambiance because I find myself just wondering how the dress looks. Even though I love how we can see that rose sitting atop the back of her shoulder.
Though, the girl on the left does outshine the one on the right a tad too much.

The way the girl on the right is sitting, I really only see her abdomen up. It seems that's all there is to her.
Perhaps rearrangement and different placement would be good, though the angles of their faces are lovely. (As I've mentioned.)

I like the overall scheme but there's not much contrast.
The sand is a good touch. I can't find a definite 'spark' though the photo is gorgeous.
It would be good if the background has been a tad lighter.
Say the color of the stones in the jewelry.
A deep blue (not too bright, but brighter than the current) as the background would have been nice, something with depth as to not over shine.
That way their dark brunette hair would stand out more.
But I can tell what you were going for and that's good.

I believe this was moderately well done.

Sorry about my old rant thing, but I still think it is rubbish, just not as bad as I made it out to be.
