This is iconic..

Even being on the set while this was being created, the image still jumps out at me with the impact of a freight train. There is a story involved with the entire series of course, but this single image tells a complete one all by itself.

Lighting on the main model is perfect, as his her pose, creating a timid, yet inappropriate feel to her. The second model, in my opinion is very slightly off.. he seems.. more apprehensive and timid.. but perhaps he is.

The single, and only criticism I fan find with this image.. and I do not entirely know why I feel this way.. is that the set looks too 'clean'. This is bizzare, considering that there is nothing clean about the set at all.. but for some reason, that is what I get. It dosnt seem to carry the age it should.. the walls seem too uniform under the plants.. the floor seems designed opposed to stained. Obviously, this is very knit-picky, and hardly detracts from the image, but to me it is like a itch I just cant reach. Perhaps some additional debris or dirt on the floor would have helped, or 'griming' up the walls prior to the vines a bit.. minor things... probably invisible from a distance. It is a phenomenally gorgeous set... but it seems like phenomenally gorgeous set.. if that makes sense.

Still, awesome image series, and the minor issue does not kill the image at all.

Yep.. lots of variables to manage there. I doubt very much I said anything you weren't already thinking yourself.

Tough love on this one, which is delicate because I know everyone involved. There are a lot of pieces to this which work.. profile, hair, make-up, lighting...

But the scarification... I am not sure if its the lighting but it seems too 'tubular', for lack of a better word. They seem to rise too far off the skin and appear applied opposed organic, giving it more of a hot glue look, especially on the smaller details.

Coloration is a issue as well. They blend in too much with the skin. Scars like that either tend to go white with age, or dark if they keloid. It had to be a delicate balance of making the scaring prominent enough to show but keep them realistic.

I suspect you didn't get the time to refine the look under the settings of a meet and greet. Still, is a solid start and god knows you aren't afraid to learn on site and get better every single time.

Devil's in the details...

I like the shot overall, not just because of the model. You have some lost data where it blows out at the front. Natural lighting on skin that pale can do that easy. In this case, I would have shot for a slightly underexposed image and brought it up.

There are some wall details that I think detract from the image and they could have been very easily shopped out. They draw attention away from the image itself and make me wonder "what are those spots on the wall?".

Finally, and very knit picky, her wrist bone is jutting out at a strange angle. Again, distraction, and correctable.

Still, great composure and image all in all. I love the saturated, slightly grimy look you have been doing in your post processing.
