Well done my man! Well done! As far as some of the "photography" I've seen on this site, this is pretty badass! Well. Enough abuse of the shift+1; down to the critique.

There's quite a bit of stuff that I like here. The costume is great. It really makes every part of the model look good (except for two areas which I'll get to in a sec.). The transition from dull, gritty greyscale, to a bright, bloomy rainbow, while not very original, is done very well. Hell, you're the first person I've ever seen get it right!

Now, onto the parts that need help. I mentioned liking all but 2 parts of the model. To be exact, her face and hair. Her facial expression is, no offense to the model, an eyesore. She looks at the camera with a bitter, almost disgusted look on her face. And her hair sadly doesn't float well with that particular costume.

Well, Mr. Heine, that's my critique. It's been a pleasure reviewing your picture. Well done.
