Ok Ok ... I'll admit it ... she doesn't smoke ... :-) .. haha Steve, it depends on how you intepret the title. Could also be taken as a message not to smoke! The before and after thing ... but I do admittedly use these props very often in my photos. The wine glass also occupies a model with other than the camera ... they can both also help to convey mood ..
John, I really like the color here. The slight red of the matches and the flower petal(??) really complement the blues. As usual, her facial expression draws the eye. My compliments to both of you!
Good composition in wonderful colours John !
Very enjoyable, thanks for sharing. Regards, Howard
Great work.Perfect color and light.Excellent composition.Regards John.Janusz.
hey john, thanks for wasting your time looking at my pictures :) makes me kinda happy that you like some of them ;p yup, i do hang around on this mountain slopes...snowboarding..made me go to school a bit longer than i was ment to be there, i dont care..was the bets time of my life :) you shouldnt step on chairs, you know. statistically, most of all accidents happen at home. dont make us see no more pictures of you by doing acrobatic training at home !! so far :)
Wow, yet another great photo of a dashing and elegant young lady. Her expression is engaging and her poise sensuous. I love the added details of the flower petal and personal vice. Cheers to both of you!
very delicate, sensual pose and expression. I like the cold colors.
Many thanks to all, to the model that reads this too.
I like this picture so much - the colours, her expression, very fine work!!!
Lovely and sexy, great work, John. Alberto
nah, i wont join, even though its quite hard to resist..smoking kills hehe just kidding..i am a smoker...and hmm..i honestly dont know what i should say to this. i do like the natural colors and i thought the title was kind of funny :) pretty girl though..good image, at usual eidt...oh..it says "last smoke"...not lets smoke..i should wear my goggles metink xD
Howard, Juha, thank you both. It's the model of course that brings the magic ...
Marvelous , Beautiful and sensual
Excellent pose and composition my friend. The light and skin tones are superb.
very sensuous image...
Style Interesting...you are obviously a popular photographer on this site but coldly analysing this pic I am confused. Technically it seems very soft - particularly the eyes and the underwear - skin tones are quite erratic and "blotchy" - maybe its cos I am a studio photographer and this is a bit too realistic for my taste. I love the mood and the lines. Hint of a nipple is great but think that the cigarettes are distracting and causing controversy for the sake of it. Obviously a beautiful model.
Thank you Derek. Studio versus the opposite well, there will always be adherents to one or the other, and sometimes both. How right you are, evening was falling, light and contrast are indeed lacking, as is detail. I was probably more concerned here with capturing the mood and the charm, happily you noticed it though. The blotchiness, yes, I can see that too .. I wonder if the sunbathing is not as much responsible as the quality of the print. I did point it out to her a couple of times ..... :-) In general terms, the most interesting to me of what you say is the "controversy for the sake of it". Hmm, isn't that what communication is all about and, in the case of photography, drawing on the viewers' attention? Many thanks for passing by.
love her facial expression, her pose in your beautiful moody image
Last smoke .. ..
