Critique by Cyantre Jul 2, 2009, 7:58:32 PM
The model in the photograph looks almost statuesque. Her hair, her pose, and the distinguished look on her face all add to that idea. The unveiling of her head from the hoodie invokes a feeling of a human wishing to cast off their humanity for the stillness of a statue, though I'm not sure if that was intended or not.

What really throws me off about this piece is all of the white space to the right. It almost looks like it is suppose to be a post-card, though the photograph gives no indication that it would be.

The watermark is also a little obtrusive. The font used for the name is beautiful, but with so little of the photograph actually featured in this piece, it is distracting to have the watermark over the model.
What do you think?

Yeah that is how it was supposed to be originally.. But my monitor didn't show the gray areas for some reason.
But thanks :)

This pic definitely reminds me of Old Hollywood. Your model is stunning and could so totally be a Femme Fatalé all that is needed is a movie title, but even as a teaser poster it rocks.

What ever you your motivation. it is amazing

The photo itself is beautiful. It demonstrates a wonderful contrast between light and dark, especially between her pale skin and light top. And you're extremely gorgeous, too.

In the overall image, though, there's a clear distinction between where the photograph ends and the rest of the negative space begins. The background of the photo is just a little darker, a little more gray than the pure white negative space.

Ah nevermind, I see what you are talking about. I looked at it on a separate monitor.

I feel your pain. I've uploaded many a painting only to see that it looks different on other people's monitors. The curse of digital media! :shakefist:

I re-uploaded it, and hopefully fixed it.

Thank you so much :blush:..

What do you mean about the background? Perhaps it's my monitor, but even when I look at it from all angles it's completely white..
Well, that sucks, heh. I'll try to fix it :) Thank you.

wow this photo is wonderful, you know, you look different in this photo, I like the composition, two rectangles are seen (maybe is the effect of light on a wall, but looks fantastic) and you are in the smallest one, recluse, well, it's my interpretation of your photo ^^
beautiful work!
