I like the way the soft curves of your body contrast with the angles of the room.

im in love- this shot is so exquisite - you couldn't get a more perfect model with a figure that is more perfect for this shot!

When i first glanced over the thumbnail of this image, was certain i was looking at a digital manipulation in which the woman's proportions were exaggerated to appear so long & lean & her body manipulated to curve in such a dramatic way- but now seeing it full view, it seems that the photographer brilliantly uses lighting & angle techniques to enhance the models figure to appear this way.

Anyway, the bend of her body is most definitely the "star" of this shot. The curving figure creates the most beautiful, and most elegant shapes in both negative & positive space- but what is most appealing to me is the stark contrast between those soft, graceful, womanly curvatures and her harsh black leather, metal adorned, spiky heels- even the bones of her ribcage we see illumnated on her back work with the spiky heels to give contrast to the softer elements- this creates a sexy, biting tension that is also expressed through her facial expression.

The composition is also great. The main focal point is obviously her face- everything in the image is telling you to look there: Most notably, if you follow the curve of her body from her feet on up and around her back, you end up at the highlighted shoulder which points to her head (in fact, if you follow that foremost arm, you can see that the angle it creates with the bend of the back forms a point/arrow towards the head). If you look again at the bones illuminated on her back, they form another sort of arrow pointing up & around her back to her head. Also, the dark, shadowed arm not only cradles her head, but is also bent in such a way that another angle forms which, yes, points to her head.

All of the lines in this image- both those that are visible, as well as implied- and the angles that they create are placed perfectly. The outside right-edge of the window is almost perfectly in line, vertically, with the angle where her head begins. there is a line created by the light, which almost cuts the image into 2 portions- if you follow the beginning of that line, once it hits her knee, it bends all the way up and, again, around her body- effectivly bringing your eyes around the whole piece in a smooth, flowing manner. Without going into even more detail, if you just look at all of the lines (again visible, or implied) - even those in the wood of the floor- you will begin to notice how many of them parallel or line up with important elements, or frame them, or point to them themselves, or create angles to do so. There's a whole lot going on here that you could really get into, but i have already i feel, typed too much (especially since i just realized that this is the gallery of not the photgrapher, but the model

Finally, the only problem i have with this image is the graininess- it really takes away from the exquisite quality of this shot and makes it look unpolished- i wish it were clear & sharp to really emphasize the angles & lines :aww:
