in X amount of words - we've come to a plethora to discuss....

Composition elements: The slender triangular blades of green grasses and clusters of curved violet blossoms set a base of distinct geometric shapes and colors that occur naturally. Our model, here dons a similarly varied yet contrasting blouse and armlet. The fabric pattern in terms of variety is in apposition to the grass while at the same time the nature of it's content is a dichotomy having sculls, snakes swirls and stark forms contrary to the living beauty of the grass. Her two toned hair in matted, spiked coif also parallels the grass in form yet contrasts in color and direction, pointing downward toward. In the center we can find a band of smooth white skin which appears without blemish and stands out from amidst such patterning and variety. Her pose and camera angle works well in terms of defining a concise rounded head, face, oblong arms with matching curved body. These shapes are more consistent for her, creating a visual language for her as the subject and are in contrast to the pointed shapes of the grass and hair.

Theme: Apposition / Opposition

Technique: I cant answer that, I know nothing of the craft apart from point and shoot

Overall impression: a nicely balanced image. It may lack if anything a clearer focusing element.

I always enjoy looking at :iconh0ll0w25:'s stuff - there is some reaching to try something different than necessarily within the "sweet spot". Thank you for requesting - always a pleasure

For some reason my eyes end up drifting from the plant life, to pigeon, and then to the skull on her sleeve and back again....and then it just cycles.... it's a good picture...and I really can't put my finger on why.
Bravo man.

This is a great photo--what I would love to see it everything the same, except with her eyes visible--Especially if they are blue or green, or bright in general. I think that would be add a whole new level to the photo, and be a nice focus point.

but her eyes aren't blue or green they're dark brown(still lovely) but the focus wasn't to be her eyes....thanks though

Awkward pose. Your hand, with light shining between your fingers, cupped behind that rectangular earring and your bracelet and necklace...all the metal in the picture...comes together. My eyes went there first and I got a slight jar. It seemed, in the middle of all this green and the fabulous top and your succulent flesh, there was a jangle of razor blades that made me cringe and become aroused at the same time.
