nice Halloween shot Xavier. Scary. hehe


Darker, darker! This would be better if it was darker, maybe a dark background and less exposure.
The hair, make-up (or is it PP effects?) and particularly her eye is amazing though, impressive work!

Hello Zavier,
This is a wonderful work. Also i liked your model posing style. she is succesful. And your tecnique is very very good.
could i please ask a question? i think halloween is from American culture and Death people are not frightening in Asian culture, arent they.. i think death and their siprits are holly in your culture? am i right?

Thanks for sharing this marvolous work!

Very interesting artwork! This is creative and innovative! Very well done! Thanks! Michel

Imagine if you took this photo in the evening with selective lighting and used a more natural background such as an old tree the scene would really be scary (even for the photographer). But otherwise, I liked the creativity and post processing... perfect for halloween. Well done.
