Compared to Ben Heine's other works, "Red-Green" is not exactly the most original work. This is not to belittle the impact and positive aspects of the photo itself. I would personally hold that the originality was a little lacking on this one.

Having said that, the impact is solid and the technique flawless. Getting a narrow depth of field which really slams the attention onto the model was a fantastic touch. It meant that there is much less detail to distract from the model. Additonally, having the background fade to grey is a nice touch, avoiding a "green overload". This is a great testament to Ben's obvious skills with a camera.

The choice of Caroline Madison's top and hair colour were also major factors in the appeal. They balance with the green background well, and Caroline's red hair really contrasts it, though I think "contrast" is a massive understatement, and does little justice to the quality that the colour adds. Caroline's skin is also a great element, adding a less vibrant space to the overall shot, which gives the eyes a break from the overall assault of green and red.

Credit should also go to Caroline for her achievements in making the photo what it is. To be completely frank, I cannot put into words the quality and emotion she brings to the shot. Suffice to say, she makes a great model, and one who obviously works well with Ben.

Despite my opening "lack of enthusiasm" for the photo, I want to reiterate and be really clear: I really like this photo. It is striking, appealing and visually interesting.
