Quand on est con, on est con :)
Hy Chris, well it's the first thing I noticed on arrival, can't really miss it, and I imagined that it could add an interest to some photos!
Maybe you were passing by By Steven!
Definitely better. I'll change the original, thank you.
Why is she smelling her armpit? I guess this is supposed to be a commentary on body image but is it that she wants to be like the woman on the billboard or is it that she just wants to be with her? Is she jealous or forlorned? What's the correct type of yearning here? That woman on the billboard is very healthy looking so I don't buy her as the object of derision and also I don't really think that your model is in love either. I really have no feels about her and whatever her plight may be. All I can think is that she needs a bowl of pasta and a beer, and not a lite beer either. And why is she smelling her armpit?
John, you are getting some serious mileage out of that billboard! This is a fabulous shot, both of the model and her engagement with the billboard.
I agree Obi, thanks.
Regarding Steven; Stephan, what can one do on a public site, there will always be a percentage of people that just seek attention for themselves. This one spent a total of 10 days on Photo net !
6/7 Bravo! Very original. Great story behind it, composition is very good.
I prefer this image in the series, for me at least I find it very engaging. Her body language indicates a feeling of lonlieness.Very nicely executed as is the whole series
John, I hadn't looked at this before. It is one of your most powerful compositions. I feel the longing of the model to look like the poster image. Very powerful indeed!
Jerry, that's an interesting perspective .. thank you. Funny you say that, I remember that she did actually comment on the model opposite in endearing terms ..
I don't know about changing the original. I think that the black frame makes this picture look more natural. I like it the way it is. Just my opinion.ð¬
