Greetings from the Critique Club.

Interesting image. As someone commented on already, it does seem to have a sort of 60s feel to it. Whether it's because of the thick black belt, that shade of pink in the background, or the tone of the almost doll-like skin... I've been trying to figure it out, and this was the closest I found to it: //www.uncrate.com/men/images/golden-age-ads-60s.jpg

I think the composition is interesting. The way the picture has been cropped seems to make the person look kind of non-human - the basics of the female form are there, but the skin looks smooth, the body looks plastic and artificial, you get the impression it could easily be a manequin in a shop window. Except not, because next you notice the detail of the skin, the hips, etc. The opposite happens with the vase - the belt emphasises the resemblance to female curves.

So yeah, successful objectification of a human and humanisation of an object - how twisted :)

Technical stuff is pretty good, the light on the skin is very nice. The only objection would be the light glare on shiny surfaces (probably solvable using a polarizing lens, or somehow playing around with the light sources).

No idea what PP you did, so can't really comment. Can't see anything wrong with it.

Totally random image. How odd. Seems to work though. Well done on the score and top 10 (and getting it in on time!)

Lovely idea. For some reason, this reminds me of the 60s. Who knows? Anyways...great job. The colors and lighting are excellent, and the idea is very creative. 8

This would be a good idea if there's another "Personification" challenge.
