Mirabeau style corset in black worsted wool with white mesh bust ruffles and halter strap. Busk front closure, back laced.

Pencil skirt in white satin with white and black ruffle detail.

::

Okay I cheated. I visited the website link.

1. I find 90% of this charming. Not especially original. Although the Pencil skirt in white satin was different.

2. My biggest grrr is the model faces away from the camera which doesn't invite the shopper or artist inside her experience. I found this odd. On the website, most models look at the camera either 100% to 25% of the time. Most of GirlTripped works invites you inside the frame. :shrug:

3. My second annoyance it's in black and white and has the too busy tiger stripped background. This background steals the eyes from the outfit. I suggests color version with a solid deep cherry red background. Not sure how, GirlTripped would do this. I'm no photo shop expert. Might be simple as swapping backgrounds with a button click.
4. I found charming this tiny hat, lace stockings and corset.
5. A in-color version would rock, but not with the stripped or any stripped background.

Summary: On the whole have model make eye contact with the camera and swap out the background.

Critiques are only opinion. Take what you want toss the rest.

Love the title, Makes me view the pose in a different way. Like the model is something that has been accidentally discarded and this is the moment which it is now again found. Was this your intention? If not, still a very good and deep piece.

It's a shame it's cut off so abruptly at the elbow, a bit more space over there would have been better, I think.
This sort of distracts me from the picture now.

Besides that I really like it.

Does Winter ever wear a styled wig for photos like this? Or does she go through different hair colours every once in a while? Just seems like she has red hair the most often, but then I'm guessing this is a little older. She's gorgeous no matter the hair colour, but I was just curious. :P

I do like the pose, lighting, and her rose patterned stockings though. And that corset looks fantastic!

As to the critque by Lovespoon. I don't mind her faceing away, but...

1. Postion
a) I wouldve liked more room between the models face and the frame rather then almost cutting off her elbow.
b) If she were lower in the frame i dont think the striped background would be as distracting. Shes just not in the right spot for that busy of a background.
c) I never noticed the tophat till i read the critique, again with the models postion i end up focusing more at the skirt and shoes rather then the models face and overall "lost toy" apperance.

2.The black and white i really enjoy as a colour version wouldnt add that much to the compostion, unless it had a diffrent style/colour background.


Couldve been an overal great and stunning photo, but overall i enjoy the ideas and thought of it more then the final product.
