I'm not quite sure where to begin and in some sense, I feel rather shy about critiquing this work because it is so well done. This piece is emotionally provocative due to its "complex simplicity". It is modern and fresh and at once, classic and familiar. The the model's body type, the pose and the use of light and shadow pay homage to the classical masters of old in both paintings and sculpture. Well directed, this is an excellent photograph, technically and stylistically. At the time of my writing this, I have not yet reviewed any of your other work but I will be soon. Excellent. I feel quite fortunate that I stumbled across this piece.
The light and shadow provide a lovely contrast to the model's skin. The beige background and the tan skin/brunette hair of the model make this almost a sepia-tone work. Lovely and soft. Beautiful piece!
