She is not a a mannequin..she is real.Skin is purposely taken to the edge. Yes her hand is one area where I ran out of time with.
here is another version with the desired effect of smoke. Couldnt get her to execute with all factors in one shot, Her mouth is conposited into this shot and red filter added to background..

Congratulations on the ribbon. I looked at this for a long time while in voting, trying to decide whether I liked the hand or not....in the end, I did. Great creativity.

Welcome back Leo
(unless it's an impersonation)
definitely a mutant; look at her hand

Love the pose and the burst of red. The only thing that wigs me out is her hand and the smoothness of her skin. Makes me question whether I am seeing too much editing or if I am looking at a mannequin.

Studio anarchy. A contradiction of terms. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2013 12:22:20 PM
Looking like a Leo... If you're not Leo, then that's a great compliment. First-rate lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2013 08:54:00 AM
I cannot decide if she's human or not. Lovely picture though but if she is human then I'll vote it down for the pp. If she's mannequin then its DNMC. NO vote
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Not sure the chain helps, but that's the only thing I'd change. Otherwise, excellent image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2013 09:04:49 PM
I can't decide if I like this or not. The lighting is good but she looks like a manikin and I'm thinking you did this on purpose but the effect is done more strongly on the hand than the face, I think I would like it better if it was more uniform.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2013 10:13:37 AM
Well, well. You're not messing around with this one, are you. Going for the homerun...and I think you have it. Absolutely impeccable lighting and composition. Not a fan of the plastic skin -- but I recognize that is in vogue. Fully expect this to be Top 3 at the close of voting. Quite striking! First 9 of the challenge from me.

EDIT: while I think the skin is too unnaturally processed (note the hand which looks like it belongs to a mannequin), this image is head and shoulder above the rest. Such a bold image that punches harder than the others. Top vote from me.

Very alternative, and stands apart from many other shots. Good lighting and focus, I gave it a 9. For me the skin is smoothed almost to the high end CG look & feel over a photo, particularly the smoking hand which has a duller hue than the face and open chest areas.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2013 04:34:21 PM
Stellar lighting and styling. But I'm not crazy about the overly smoothed skin (especially on her hand), and the bank of lights behind her. Seems more distracting than anything.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2013 01:50:55 PM
Modern. Well done. Great lighting. Good title. 9

Porcelain enough to be a real live doll. I'd say the ear piercing and mole give her away :) Great shoot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2013 10:12:40 PM
Very Nice, I like the exaggeration. One of my top pics
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2013 07:45:18 PM
I gave you a 10...what more can I say!

03/13/2013 05:11:46 PM
nice, futuristic and robotic looking

Magazine quality image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2013 12:12:58 PM
Perfect fashion shoot, although she is almost too perfect for me. The hand looks painted. Her skin is too flawless, but still an 8 for me...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2013 10:23:49 AM
is this a mannequin, if not it looks fake to me, no ones skin is that smooth, sorry!

Nice job on this.
You took it out of the box yet kept it relevant.
Well done.
