I've posted this one previously on my GG portfolio but it did'nt seem to attract many views. Just like to get some professional feedback on it.
Thanks in advance for your time and comments.

I always like sheer! Not a bad effort. Two suggestions. One, the image appears to have a slightly red cast on my monitor. Are you shooting with a Canon or using the Adobe color space?
Second, I like the bit of the drums I can see. I would like to see a bit more -- either step back about one step or change the composition to something that includes more drum.

I like this photo's technical elements. I like the blue, the drum sticks and the drums. I also love the model's outfit. The thing I think would have made this image "wow" is if she had some motion going... if she were PLAYING the drums, and if her hair were in motion and her expression totally "into" the music. This would evoke a headbanger feeling in me, and I think she'd be a great model for that--and everything else in this photo works for you in that way.

Bob,

Thanks for your time and comments. Unfortunately the drums have been sold (I got an Olympus E-1 with the money). The picture was taken with a Fujifilm 602 Zoom. Here's one more which shows a bit more of the drum (and Estrella).

Too static. I agree that the images would be better if she were actually playing. The other thing would be to get her to smile a bit. She's not engaging the viewer.

I've sat down with Estrella (model) and we both agree totally with your viewpoint! Thanks for the feedback.
