I designed and sewed the dress, it was shot before and not inspired by 300 the movie. There were some 20meters or so of chiffon and tulle, many hours of sewing, unpicking, resewing involved. Hope you enjoy. <3

Simply great!

I like the soft light that seem to give the model a glow, combined with the motion blur in the hair, it gives a very soft feel altogether. The diagonal composition from the corner fits the motion of her har perfectly, and is crossed by the angle in her arm. I am also a big fan of the colorchoice, the desaturated, almost black and white feel add to the soft mood of the picture.

The only negative point I can add is that her face feels too obscured by her hair, in combination with the lighting that blows out parts of her cheek and nose.
A minor detail, that doesn't affect the overall feel in the photo, which is magnificent.
What do you think?

A brillient shot!

I love how this shot has a light and dark feel to it, the shaded edges give it aa nice touch to. The idea was fairly original and i have not seen any other deviation that has taken this angle. I like how she is holding her hands out which makes her look like she's falling but still seems peacefull. I think it would have looked better if the hands looked more defined as they are slightly blury, also i think it would have looked nice in a full body picture with the girl leaning back while on her toes but this shot still has a good feel to it. I like the colour pallet, how the greys and whites stand out nicely against the white - dark edged background. Having the eyes closed was a good idea but i think it would look just as good with the eyes wide open with shock, over all i have no major problem with this peice and think that all of these favourites are well deserved.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room.

ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!  Look at how all of the curved lines work together, especially with the shape of the arms contradicting the flow.  Fab idea perfectly executed.

A technical tour de force as well.  The not-too-hot spot on the background behind her, great to hold tonality.  Brightness falls away to corners to accentuate center hot-ness.

I love the momentum in the dress & hair and the overall expression of this picture!

Fine and exciting composing and framing, e.g. the diagonal starting with the fabrics from the upper right corner downwards and reclined head.
Your art is so inspiring :-)

You are now cursed. You must send this on or you will be killed. Tonight at 12:00am, by Bloody Mary. This is no joke. So don't think you can quickly get out of it and delete it now because Bloody Mary will come to you if you do not send this on. She will slit your throat and your wrists and pull your eyeballs out with a fork. And then hang your dead corpse in your bedroom cupboard or put you under your bed. What's your parents going to do when they find you dead? Won't be funny then, will it? Don't think this is a fake and it's all put on to scare you because your wrong, so very wrong. Want to hear of some of the sad, sad people who lost their lives or have been seriously hurt by this email?

CASE ONE -
Annalise [Surname Removed] :She got this email. Rubbish she thought. She deleted it. And now, Annalise dead.

CASE TWO -
Louise [Surname Removed]: She sent this to only 4 people and when she woke up in the morning her wrists had deep lacerations on each. Luckily there was no pain felt, though she is scarred for life.

CASE THREE -
Thomas [Surname Removed]: He sent this to 5 people. Big mistake. The night Thomas was lying in his bed watching T.V. The clock shows '12:01am'. The T.V misteriously flickered off and Thomas's bedroom lamp flashed on and off several times. It went pitch black, Thomas looked to the left of him and there she was, Bloody Mary standing in white rags. Blood everywhere with a knife in her hand then disappeared. The biggest fright of Thomas's life.

Warning... NEVER look in a mirror and repeat -'Bloody Mary.Bloody Mary.' Bloody Mary... I KILLED YOUR SON' Is it the end for you tonight! YOU ARE NOW CURSED 

We strongly advise you to send this email on. It is seriously NO JOKE. We don't want to see another life wasted. ITS YOUR CHOICE... WANNA DIE TONIGHT? If you send this email to...

NO PEOPLE - You're going to die.

1-5 PEOPLE - You're going to either get hurt or get the biggest fright of your life.

5-15 PEOPLE - You will bring your family bad luck and someone close to you will die.

15 -25 OR MORE PEOPLE - You are safe from Bloody Mary

I love the effect of the billowy dress and the way the model has her head tilted back with her eyes closed makes it even more dramatic. I love how the colors of this picture are very neutral. When I look at this picture I feel calm and I just enjoy the beauty of it. Magnificent job.
