Haven't done a Critique in ages as nothing has really inspired me...This image did however jump out of my computer screen slap me in the face and scream are you paying attention?..
Having spent some time looking at your gallery its hard to tell which are better than others, they are equally amazing breathtaking images...however this one is head and shoulders above the rest!
Why? well a whole host of reasons, but mainly for it's ability as a photograph to command respect from it's audience as a Masterpiece for that is what is is.
It allows us the viewers to draw our own conclusions, it is thought provoking..sensual..provocative...stylish
I could go on for hours however, let me leave it here by saying it is Simply a Unique image in the Ultimate portrayal of the Beauty of a Woman..
Kind Regards

Another stunning image from =OlgaAthens an attractive self-portrait with a beautiful attention to detail.

Vision -
A dress doesn't defy gravity it was either held up by helpers or pined by OlgaAthens so thought and preparation has gone into this with a elegant choice of backdrop matching the shadow on the underside of the dress the make up was made to match and lets face it black and red works so well together.

Originality -
This is original the position of the model and shape of the dress are all aesthetically pleasing, I do notice that the right side of the dress rides higher than the left classically this is a problem but i think OlgaAthens has overcome this by inclining her head backwards parallel with the left accent of the dress giving me impression of being lay in a some sort of magical hammock and in effect cancelling out the lack of symmetry.

Technique -
whether or not she had help or not doesn't matter the logistics of taking a shot like this is never going to be easy and the post-processing has also been done with an attention to detail that OlgaAthens prominently shows in her gallery….

Impact -
What can I say... 6.574 views! In my opinion that's a couple of hundred thousand view less than this images deserves!

This photo rivals the work of some of the worlds best professionals!

Why aren't you in here gallery?…
