June 30, 2012 10:32pm classic pose with perfect execution, great contrast and tone, backgrounds in the same tonal range as your skin but still balancing out each other, with the shadow to accentuate it all !!
February 15, 2012 10:02pm A simple image with a some remarkable, subtle (and probably intended) contradictions. Your pose is intense and energetic, yet your expression is serene. The soft light plays beautifully off your face and body. But because of your proximity to the background, the shadows create a darker, noir look. Most viewers perceive such subtle contradictions only on the subconscious level, where they create tension. Tension = interest, maybe even fascination. What all this means is that this is the type of image that causes people to linger - and they never know why.
