This feels very fashionable in a number of ways, first of all the pose feels very couture runway with the over exaggerated shoulder and shape of the back. That gives it a very "high art" sensibility. I tend to enjoy that though I think it might be lost on a number of people who don't spend time following runway fashion.

I also feel like the outfit itself is really the main focus here with the intricate buckles and leatherwork. You as a model are clearly vital to the image but it feels more about the clothing than the model. If you don't have a good model the clothes will look ill fitted and awkward, so there is a lot to be said for having a skilled model and one who fits the visual style of the clothing. However a good model let's the clothes speak and I think that is what is happening here. That also gives it a very fashionable aesthetic.

I think the makeup and pose are good choices. I also enjoy the backdrop which gives texture but goes away pretty easily. I don't know if this piece would lend itself to being on a more decorated set as I think it would take away from the outfit so I think all the choices here are pretty good.

There are some lighting issues here that bother e (thus the lower technique score). The image loses something in the bottom third, the darkness around the hips and below is not enough to fully remove the area from view but enough to make it very unsatisfying visually. The lack of contrast which makes the top so nice makes the bottom blah.

There is also a warm orange color creeping up from the bottom which I find off putting. It doesn't seem to me to serve a purpose and makes this warm spot where I feel the only warm value should be on the model. The orange is simply distracting, it also doesn't seem to match well with the red, it just seems to make that bottom third really muddled.

Overall it seems like a nice piece that with some lighting changes could be stellar.
What do you think?

Another great composition: makeup, hair, outfit, pose, background...all work together well. Nicely done.

The background might be a bit bland, but the pose and the outfit make this flaw very forgiving.

This has to be the one of the cutest bondage outfits I've ever seen. Bondage is always sexy of course, but what I love most is this piece is restrictive in the way of leather and straps, yet not as binding as maybe a full body suit would be. I've always loved the asymetrical look, even before it was popularized, and that red is absolutely gorgeous.

Awesome as always!
The makeup and the hair are really awesome, but I must say that it looks a bit photomanipulated.

The outfit is amazing! I love it!
I might actually be inspired..
Would you mind if I were to use this in a later outfit for a character design?
DaBigBadWulf Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This photo is very well done in my opinion.
The strong lighting sources making yer skin look as if it is made out of porcelain. The deep reds of the leather all over, contrast against the bright paleness of yer body in this photo.
The pose is very strong and sexy all at the same time. With the light casting shadow and bloom where it is most striking. Drawing the watchers eyes to yer own. Which by the way look amazing here.
This brings most of the attention to the top part of the image, where you can see all the intricate makeup and hairstyle details.
Which seem to compliment the outfit just enough, but still feels like yer own style.
It's an interesting balance of soft beauty and tough leather an chains.

The only thing I will say is that, if the image was to kinda promote the outfit, this image doesn't work so well. We are focused more upon you then the image due to the dramatic lighting making you glow, then against the leather and metal of the very detailed and well put together outfit.

It's a really good composition, dead-awesome outfit-- but the left arm is almost too distracting. Perhaps it's my eyes, but it just looks a little too uncomfortable for the rest of the pose.
