For some reason reminds me of Michael Ackerman. Would prefer something going on on the bottom half of the picture but overall I like it.

Stark, chic, fashionable arrogant and alluring. A lady on the brink of lavish egocentricity couldn't have been portrayed more simply and with more style. Here's an 8 for your efforts ;)

The little black dress has taken on a new look.. yes, it speaks to me. The angles are great.

Love the darkness, the subtle quality here, the understatement proves less is more.

One of my top 3, I love the darkness surrounding her with the explosion of brightness that is her skin, great look and great editing

Awarded for the Best of Art 2012

This is a new comment series for me, so please bear with me while I find my style!

(Voted earlier)

This is one of my 10s - I like it very much. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:

1. This is flat out gallery-quality portrait work - wonderful eclectic composition, modelesque awkward pose, conspicuous structured lighting - all wonderfully contrived in a way that created photos have to be.

2. The relationship between your model and the light and the shade is just terrific, her physical relationship to it and her connection with it too.

3. The top line of her bodice - it communicates just enough of the garment she is wearing. Perfect.

4. The high contrast monochrome processing - again a perfect choice.

Overall, you've made lots of choices here and they all hang together to offer something that is more than the sum of its parts. I'd be happy to have this on my wall.

This has a strong presence, even in the thumbnail. Everything about it is fascinating. Very well done.

Fits the theme nicely and I like the spotlight effect. I think losing more of the negative space below would make it stronger, but I'm not the artist! :) Nice job.

Beautiful piece of work. Classy yet raw and professional but immediate and real.
