very strangely it reminds me one of Dave's more serious BW portrait. almost the same low key lighting and grain. Look at his image and imagine now this is a serie about character expressions Dave's grieving yours has gone mad...
the only thing that distracts me a bit is the brownish color on the top of the image, I have no problems with a lighter area but I thing the color is simply not matching, perhaps some desaturation on red color would help, it'd also decrease the brighter red color grains.
Good shot which surpringly didn't get any comments.
Funny, I was browsing through treklens, something that I don't often do anymore and, instantly from the thumbnail, I recognized the place where it was taken, very near to here. Perhaps you should try a darker shot with more shadows and less sunburnt areas.
"Hotel Vancouveria"? ("check out anytime you like but you can't never leave", though one of the most heard songs, there's still a mystery on what the lyrics really mean...)
"Last exit to vancouver" H.Selby Jr.? hmmh can't see the point here...
As I don't know what Vancouver is all about and just skip the fact it's taken there.. i'll interpret the scene more like some kind of boredom in a provincial life... Mme Bovary would be more suited : there's hardly an exit from Yonville.
But it goes to my favs.
Ah, they're back to common sense and finally decided to put you behind there at last.
btw, it seems you've found how to use the selftimer, meanwhile...
as everything is steady and you blurred, I suppose you had to shake waiting for 10 secs for the self timer to click. Should have been fun to watch you achieving that shot.... :D
Oooh, are you coming to chase the dragon with us over here, Sorhab?
For those -like me- who thought "Puff, the magic dragon" was just a kiddie song, it was also the surname the most feared US airplane by vietcongs, a DC3 Dakota with oversized machine guns and air canons... nothing to see with that topic, but just to say "Puff the magic dragon" is not only a kiddie song.
I would love to see a pic of a opium smokery (btw, why am i telling this?).
Perhaps the blown out white patch decreases the gothic mood for this image but I like the overall tones that look like lith processing, and pretty like the images of a brit R'n'R stars photographer(but forgot his name...).
Great, great shot, very powerful contrast with such simple structure lines that lead the view straight to his inquisitive looking eyes.
I like the gritty rendering of that shot.
Pool and skin are not very obvious for a fashion photo. we could also question on the outfit pnature.
Evrything is there but a bit mixed up... try something simpler with less fabric and more content.
Spot on moment, yet very usual (for a woman I guess..) but so natural.
Very nice hand positions.
