I see pain, anguish and depression, not grunge. She looks like she is contemplating hurting herself. I don't see "Fashion" at all.

This is different and interesting. I like the concept, but I think that the camera angle makes her hips and thighs look larger than they really are. The B&W gives this a stark in-your-face look that is very 'fashion'. I can't help but wonder, though, if this wouldn't have more impact if you used less light, oversaturated the color, and ran a grunge filter on it. I know - not legal in basic, but I still wonder.
As it stands, it's unique in the challenge, and I think it could hold its own in a magazine. Well done.

Nice take to the challenge. At first I didn't think she was laying in water (her bottom half doesn't give the appearance of that).

Why in a bathtub? I'm missing some part of the fashion message here I guess. Kind of a depressing image.

great black and white, if i didn't know her i would honestly believe she was a druggie, the coloring on the face is perfect,like the pants with the fish net underneth. The slightest thing just makes the picture great. You can tell you both work well together, you both have your individual thoughts on this picture that just brings it together as one.

a very good photo.... the model carries off the look - the water adds an interesting texture to her clothes.... well done!

This model looks like she was beat up by her boyfriend, then OD'ed on crack cocaine. Model not as hott as the photographer but I'M GIVING THIS A 10!!!!!

Well, I'm not sure if I like the dry spot on the shirt or not. I feel like it's taking something away simply because it is distracting, but at the same time it's unexpected, so it's interesting. Anyway, this is a good shot and I give you points for making your friend (or you) sit in a tub full of water with her clothes on.

Cool idea. I wish there was more contrast between the girl and the water. But overall a good pic.

Not my style, but you portrayed it well. I like the choice of whitish background instead of trying to go totally dark. The girl in the bathtub makes it very thought provoking. Good job!

Great photo, shows your talent well! Model is phat for shizzle!!

cool pic, and a good idea, but I would like to have seen it taken a bit further. Maybe a grungy dress or something other than jeans. Good white and blacks.

good idea. but in pictures like this you must pay attetion in what you wanna show in this case, the girls face

The angle you took the photo at makes you model look like she has fat legs. Try not to shoot with legs or hip in foreground if you are photographing any one larger than a size 1. I will make you models feel better

Very grunge, good use of black and white. Great idea to use the tub, very modern.
