Your thoughts please. I am new & I am trying to improve. If you have nothing positive to say then please say that, but I would prefer to hear more specific thoughts good or bad.

The lighting, location and costume look great, but I've always had this bombastic, arrogant, S& M thing about Latex/PVC.

The model seems vulnerable and unsure with her knees together and her arm raised as if in defence! Or am I reading to much into this image?

Just a thought

the look is great, the model pose is a little awkward. i think with a strong look, the pose should be just as dramatic or pensive for contrast.

What's your story? About the setting, or the model? Is she surrendering, or shocked, or fighting?

Lighting, exposure - really nice job.

My comments are worth what they're costing you.

Thanks for the comments and insights guys. I rather like the pose (doesn't mean it reads as any less awkward for you and I realize this.). What is the story here? Hmmm...perhaps this is where my disconnect with you (the viewing audience) is creating the snag. There is no story (at least there was not at the time of creation in my mind anyway), it is a photo of a model like countless others abounding around on the net. It is aesthetically pleasing to me, and that is about it. I typically fail to derive a sense of story from any glamour (or like genre) images I view when looking through magazines, net portfolios, etc. ...Do your images have a story? If so please link to them I sincerely would like to see and learn, it's why I am here.

Perhaps I like this photo more than I should based simply on the lighting. Illuminating an image is quite often the most enjoyable aspect for me and I found lighting the latex and the surrounding space engagingly enjoyable.

Thanks again for taking the time to comment, I hope to hear more!

I have to agree with the pose looking akward, she needs to get her chin outta her shoulder, it'll make her neck look longer.

There were a couple of things that cause tension in the photo that don't "add" anything to it. The fact that the glare from the flash is centered on her tummy causes problems. The glare is expected (even desired) with latex, but would be better if it was on the edge of her hip or something. The knees together isn't such a big deal, but we need to see the other shoe in more of a profile, I think. Of course the shoes are an important element in the photo (otherwise, why bother) and should be better displayed. Hand placement is not bad, but the pinky on her right hand sticking out kind of looks funny.
My opinion costs nothing... and is worth every penny. Rick from Arkansas "Arkie"

I recently read an article by a retoucher on the Fashion Photography Blog about how to do retouching, and the first step was to mark for removal all distractions. So I'm going to list the distraction in this images.

The hair across her chin.
The thing on the floor behind her.
The angle of her head.
The light switch beside her head.

I'm not saying you have to remove these, only that they are distractions.

I like the color and the lighting in this image. You know what you are doing. Keep it up.

No. They aren't distractions, they are part of the ambiance of the environment. It is supposed to be abandoned industrial, not sterile.

You are entitled to your opinion.

But, especially with the light switch, it draws the eye away from the model and center of the image. The ambiance would be no different without it.

I think it is the location of the thing behind her that doesn't work for me as much as the thing itself.
