I was hoping this would end up higher.
For me this was an 8.
I keep tilting my laptop to the left to look at it in portrait orientation and just love it, it turns the gravity pull towards the right, away from the light and into the light of the flower.
Sorry, I am obsessed :) Congratulations, great image!

Interesting idea for the challenge. I like that it's a little different from the other scenes.

Great lighting. Interesting subject. Makes me ask 'what is she thinking about?'.

Very cool set-up and I love her outfit, nice model and light. The neck of the flower looks a wee bit jagged, possibly from sharpening or compression, although the rest of the picture doesn't suffer from that.

Very well done. I am a bit unsure about the perhaps weak fill light and the background, as the head and hair might benefit from more separation fro the background. Maybe a second flash putting an highlight on the background could have helped (and a third one on the background behind the right foot to create a triangular motive mimicking the figure.. just, given I can barely switch a strobe on, probably I am just being delirious). Well done but, honestly, I find that turning this one in portrait orientation turns it from good to smashing excellent and so much more dynamic, with the body pulling away from light. Also, the lack of fill light from below, in vertical framing turns into a massive asset as the flower is anyway well lit.

Looks very much like a french production to me. Lovely lighting and everything else. Hope to see this near the top.

Who would have thought that hanging from the ceiling could look so elegant? Love it.

Do you ever get tired of all the comments :) It goes without saying but your setup and execution is just amazing. You are an inspiration and a drive to better my own work. Well done.
