Should she not be holding a hammer instead of skull ? In the style of a propaganda poster - Red background. Without the blindfold it would be scary but with the it ... she might be expecting me but how's she going to know when I get there ... The lighting is good (as ever) and I like the physique of the model. But overall, sorry it just doesn't work.
this just about shock appeal. i mean its exposed ok and everything but its really is'nt about art is it? what are you saying with this photo?
Shock appeal? Is this actually shocking to you people? God, I must be callous. At least she isn't lying on some poetic piece of driftwood out on a sand dune. Oh, but that's art. Silly me.
Congratulations I'm sure that it doesn't matter what people think, just that they do think or indeed are powerless not to have strong thoughts and feelings when faced with such an image. Congratulations on creating what is undoubtedly a very powerful image which will stir all sorts of emotions in people.
Wow! obnagennaya genshina s serpom - dovolno strashno, daje vo sne. (The naked woman with a sickle - it is terrible even in a dream. But the photo nevertheless is pleasant to me!) Ya baldeyu!! Nashi forever!
to be honest, this is neither interesting or erotic.
It´s a great photo with a strong theme but I prefer not go!
Hey guys! This is quite digusting! Dare to say so! Don't be a flock of sheep and keep saying...beeh...beeh...like all the rest. This is not ART but trash!
Very strong and scary. She's expecting me, though I can imagine my death, I cant resist the temptation...
Another great image, Igor. Well done.
That is definitely original. The subject is a little scary and the lighting makes the photo very dramatic. I agree, very provocative.
expecting wha?? This is defintely a provacative photo.
I don't find this disgusting or vulgur at all, in fact If I had a body like that I would walk around naked all the time.......might ditch the blindfold though. Great picture, the title says it all.
Beautiful image and with a bit of humor (in the title). Tempting but I don't want her waiting for me. In response to an above comment, there is no hammer because she is a manifestation of death, not a symbol of the former Soviet Union (at least that is my interpretation, maybe I'm completely wrong). Can't see why anyone would see this as the least big vulgar or offensive...just don't get that at all (unless nudity bothers you-in which case maybe one needs to mature pretty rapidly). Very well done. I even like the blind fold.

Category Specific? The fact is the photo is very compelling and technically well done given the subject matter, which we would all agree is disturbing, and intentionally so. Nor, given the nudity, is it surprising that almost 3,000 people have viewed the photo. Is it trash? Hardly. For that you need to browse PhotoSig. There you'll find all kinds of self-indulgent self-portraits and snapshots of naked girlfriends.

Oh no, not that skull again...
Why can't Death be a blonde???? I would think Death would manifest in many forms, but that's just me....

I find this a very well executed and interesting image. The hair is the only thing I don't like, since I can't imagine why death would be blonde or have such hair stile. Tied hair or long black falling behind her back would be more appropriate to the subject, of course in my opinion. Simone
Powerful. You know your staff.
Gee babe, I think I'd better be going, big day tomorrow, you understand.
Expecting you. Strange ideas?
