Hi Dominique!
Noli Me Tangere! Great concept, good execution. I like the focus and blur. The tone is dramatic. Very good lighting set-up. Effective pose. It shows a lot about the photographer. I like it.
Merry Christmas!

Don't be afreid ... maybe that woman ;)

This is a very sensual mood despite, or maybe because of the title. The interesting contrast between the sharpness of the hand with the rest of the composition is interesting.
Thank you very much for the information about the layering. I'm looking for this type of outline for layers accompanied by a photograph demonstrating the effects.
Kind regards,

Hi Dominique,
Very attractive photo. I like the effect and colors a lot. Great composition.
