Very interesting image; I like it even better than your previous one in this series. The lighting falls off nicely at the edges in this one, which works better than the other. One oddity here: her left hand looks unnaturally large the way it's posed, and in comparison to her face; perhaps it's a matter of perspective.

Very nice use of light to direct attention. This is a very nice shot. Personally I would have liked a little more on her face and a little less on her other attributes. i think it would make the statement a little more subtle.

Axel, i'm a great fan of your work. I like the classic period look of this shot, the light and the mood. The model is superb and her expression is perfect. Outstanding work as usual. Regards - michel

Excellent use of light, lovely model and pose. Could something more have been made of the hair?
