The image is interesting, love the splash of colour, with red shoes and red hear, and a lovery model.
To me the images still looks flat dispite good use of available lighting and lots of shadows. Im not sure why it didnt pop for me, perhaps it would look better in larger size. or from different angles. If you could let me know what any others in this series looked like?
Nothing specific stands out wrong, im confused, it has all the elements i would love, but im not over-amazed, considering your one of my favs, consistantly producing amazing images.
Love the sign, little contrived, but it really added to this image.
that's some really cool dark sarcasm on the exhibit... its really ironic that a woman is beautiful but the majority of us men will never be able to touch, lick, stroke or even mount a woman like that... a woman's beauty in many ways is shoving their image in our face and laughing saying in the eternal words of M.C. Hammer, "You can't touch this." Such a really wonderful image that conveys a lot of social commentary that is directed at the lonely men out there. So yeah, I wouldn't do any of those things that the sign says, but you know what? I'd still masturbate furiously in front of the model just to show I can still have her in my own sick twisted way.
Well, how would you find the idea of a random guy in front* of you? (And no, a woman masturbating in front of you isn't a good analogy. You would probably think you'd always like it. That's not how it works for women)
Women are not goddesses! No more than men, at least. If you put us that high, we're gonna fall inevitably.
My main point was, anyway, that in your comment, women and their beauty exist only in relation to you. They seem to exist only for your pleasure (or torture, when it's not available for you). Then, you feel the need of revenge (your masturbation sound very much like revenge, not just harmless fun), for something that supposedly belonged to you, but then was taken from you. That's the scary part for me.
*yes. Out of view you can do whatever the hell you want. But in front of sb, that's sexual assault.
you are already judging me. you're taking this way to seriously. I wouldn't masturbate in public in front of a woman. I don't want to go to jail, of course. and you fail to see the dark sarcasm of my statement. I'm being sarcastic of course but you don't know what it is like to be a man and want sex and not have it. you're really good at judging, though. next time, try to put yourself in someone else's shoes before you start making accusations of someone that is out for vengeance. I manage to understand what it is like to be a woman. The periods, the need for excessive shoes, the constant self-conscience and the total disregard for driving etiquette. and answer me this... why isn't a woman masturbating to a man a good analogy?
I don't know why, it just doesn't work. Most of the time they just answer they would love it! They don't seem to understand what it's like the other way around. That it's a form of violence. Mind you, some men understand. But most of them seem oblivious to that kind of pain. Well, I didn't mean to judge you, if it's of any worth, only that specific comment of yours. It's probably not that important. I guess it just hit a nerve.
its alright. I like having discussions like this. It keeps things interesting. would you mind if I watch your work? your work is amazing. there is sort of a surrealism to it... its a very cool style and original.
The contrast in the model's skin, then the red in the shoes and lipstick versus the background is excellent. The pedestal workswell and draws the eyes upwards to the beautiful centerpiece of a model makes for a very striking photo. The only thing I would change is get rid of what apperas to be the reflection of the camera, but it might judt be a light in the background. Model is quite attractive, great skin, a classic case if "less is more" in the pose.
