This isn't a "wow" shot, the post-production wasn't especially complex, and Libby doesn't like it, but I think that this is one of my favourite portraits in quite some time :)

Well... I have to side with Libby. The perspective and angle produce a kind of disturbing result... her arms are unnaturally "folded". Then again, this image is looking for a movie title...

Perhaps the perspective makes her arms look a bit awkward but I like it.

I like it; the perspective makes feel like she's just let go of something and she's finally taking a moment to breath...

Since this entry and the previous entry are very related, I have to say I prefer the previous entry over this one. I liked the angle and the PP treatment you did. This one is OK but for the angle it was taken, I think I would like it more if her hands and arms were placed elsewhere. Perhaps if her hands were place behind her head as if she was running them through her hair.

OK, so one of my recent favourites, but not one of yours ;-)

Personally, I would have gone for a tighter crop and not included her arms. She looks deformed - crab like!

Well I like it - I sense this project is all about unusual shapes though the body and I think this shot fits it perfectly. I like the way her arms are distorted.
