Let me start by saying this is a fantastic photo and a very apt title for it. ITS THE WAY SHE IS POSING PEEPS (her bottom stuck out and back arched gives a shape akin to a horse ). She is an absolutely stunning looking lady and so she fits into your conceptual/compositional way of set-up perfectly; assuming that it was the Beauty and the Beast, the Rough and the Smooth, the Ying-Yang way of total opposites i.e. beautiful model in derilict/rough terrain/surroundings. The lighting is perfect, especially the hint of sun passing through her hair and the presented colour/tones are just right.
This will most likely be my favourite photo for the whole year (2012) in the P&P section of DA and should be up on billboards and used as a tutorial visual on a HOW TO DO etc. Well deserved of a and a click on the 'Watch' in the future button. Carlos PS. Don't be bothered by the fact that i've only given 4 stars for originality because, as you know yourself, this type of shoot is very popular .
i think that that the setting the girl its overall very good but i think that maybe a bit more color into it to highlight certain things, ya know? also that graffeti on the wall seems a bit out of place to me because the theme looks pretty wild but the graffeti seems a bit more like a rebel type of theme. i like how shes positioned on the wall butthe grass around her is very dull, and maybe her leotard could have been a more interesting color? other than that i think you did an awesome job! but i also dont understand why you named it centaur, it seems out of place
marvelous frame....lovely curves with long legs and brilliant angle of light to high light her facial and upper body lines of Anna...!! God...I can see those bumz for years......oh but that wall is scary while leaning inn...!!
I'd say don't listen to those who don't like the swimsuit, honestly, I think what you were going for with the swimsuit and the hairstyle was an 80s thing... and I honestly love it, especially the background. She's beautiful in every way!
Because it also has to do with what you consume: chocolate, fatty foods, not enough vitamins like B or C, and stress. It all plays a huge roll in it. And frankly, supermodels compared to hardworking studying all the time students or lazy otakus eating nothing but trash and gaming all day, those people look beautiful because they have to watch what they eat and exercise a lot.
Better shot this way then not at all! She is a stunning beauty. This is a great capture. I am not knocking the critiques, nor the image. They all have merit. You have great exposure on the model subject. Who ever considers budget on these thoughts. When you have hoards of cash shoot exclusively on resorts. Until then - make the best of what you have to work with. I think you are doing that very nicely.
