gasp...... by devilicious gasp...... by devilicious
a lifetime of silence, hiding, stifling emotions breaks the mannequin's cage of " polite and proper" and she gasps for a breath of fresh air to make her feel alive...........

:devilish:
mary


[resubmit b/c DA was messing up - self, new wig, partially exposed expressive portraits series - eyes, mouths, etc. :) the harsh bad indoor lighting on this shoot gives the white out by the left edge of the face - not contrast work - :shrug: i still love the expression and composition and looking so different :p]

the composition of this is realyl quite stunning - i love the movement in the hair with the blur. i would have liked to see more focus in the mouth, but thinking about it, the blur adds to the description. a buttoned down girl spreading her wings just cant let go - she wont let herself, so it works :) now im just contradicting myself - oh dear. i love the contrast between the dark hair and the soft skin tones, then the gorgeous pink brought out in the lips, then the graduation of skin tones as the lighting allows, leading down into the rich colours on the chest from the more washed out white in the face - brings soemthing of a desparation to the piece - that she needs to escape from her 'normal' life.

do i need to type all bold to be seen around here? I think i caught carpal tunnel scrolling down the GIGANTIC size of of this list. Please forgive me if im out of line. I hurt my back lastnight and coudnt get a hold of any muscle relaxers to ease me back. I found adavan [sp?] My fingers are working about as well as my brain.
Damn I had to scroll ALLLL the way back up to remember what i wanted to comment on. I need a nurse. maybe a bed pan too.
OH MY GOD!
[ahem]
"gasp" is really good.
An instant it with the pseudo.....actaully i will need a dictionary to use that word properly. [and spellcheck].
You know whats always IMPOSSIBLE to find in galleries?
a toilet.....
NICE STUFF!

I like how ya did this Mary ;) The words match the shot, and its a great idea to do. I even like the slight blur to the pic. I like the expression - with her mouth open and the strand of hair overlaying it. I just like it. Nice one ;)

Very nice picture. The composition is very original, it is a very good idea to capture only the lower half of the face. It produces an impression of mystery. What is the look of the woman? Is she afraid, stunned or anything? Well done.

Mary:

I love the concept. here is a thought to play with as I look at this:

Take a look at cropping so that the lips and the neck form more of a diagional across the picture to lead the eye, I thought that might create an even more emotional response in the picture.

I dont know how you create the power in your images using yourself as a model.

Very cool

It's amazing that you can convey so much emotion with such a simple shot... and so little of the face. Great shot... and I like the white out at the top... I think it adds to the overall feel of the shot. =)
