First things first, the styling here is incredible. The attention to detail is most impressive. Its not hard to find a girl wrapped in pieces of black fabric or electrical tape but adding the textured green skirt and accents really made it brilliant and unique. However it would have been nice if the models hair behind the mask was larger, framing the mask better and making if feel more cohesive.

The backdrop goes well with the styling but also helps makes this a really 'creepy' feeling piece - it almost looks like she is rising from a misty swamp which is very cool. The only thing I feel could add to the pictures impact is darker lighting. This is a really well lit photograph but with the model being in what she is, and posing the way she is, it could have added a mysterious element if the lighting didn't give everything away.

The models pose is wonderful - both feminine and cryptic - and you framed her body very well.

Overall its a really refreshing photograph to see. I don't feel this is directed to any specific audience and so everyone can appreciate the art and creativity. The whole team that brought it together really showcased their talents. Excellent work!

First of all I want to say that I have never seen anything that could be even a little bit alike this picture and outfit! No, of course I may say that this "creature" looks like a "Pyramid Head" monster from well-known horror film because of this hat and its shape (I am very sorry if I had hurt feelings of the artist; need to mention that it is only my own opinion); nymph because of those dark blue-green details on this costume that looks like an algae; and also she looks like one of the ancient roman goddess. But in common it continues to be something pure unique and inimitable!

The abundance of all details just amaze! I think that I don't need to say too much about how some artists could/like/usually goes too far with all those details in their works, so the picture loses its individuality and attractiveness; but at this moment I think that all this kind of a "mess" was done with an ideal competence! Also I want to note that all the details perfectly harmonize with each other! Maybe only the red manicure isn't just quite suitable for the main theme of this photo. But one big plus is that even the hair of the model goes very well and is just inseparable from the whole costume!

The pose is also fabulously nice! I had said once (maybe more times) that I find models, acrobats, dancers, gymnasts some a little bit extraordinary people because of their talent and skills to show and retell the story only with their own bodys! So I think that this pose is amazingly perfect for this photography and truly supports the main theme of it!

But now "a spoon of tar in a barrel of honey"! I had seen this photo but only with the white background and I need to say that I prefered that one more then this, because the grey background of this version is too ponderous for me. Maybe if it was just a little bit lighter the photo wouldn't be so gloomy and solemn as it is now.

At the end I may say that even if the drawing/picture/photo is a little bit scary, incomprehensible for most of the people, IF it IS an incredible work it will attract attention of all watchers in spite of their points of view! This photography is one that notice attention!

With all my respect!

Fantastically alienating appearance, firstly an abomination with a threatening atmosphere though still elaborate and smooth to wonder upon not to talk about the pure rawness and beauty of the attire and model... absolutely lovely.
