listen it's my first critique in DA so please accept my lack of experience . but i saw that work as one I can't pass by, so here we are first the overall picture in my opinion deserves 3.5 of 5 star your vision is very good high rated in fact and i like it the body pose , the surroundings , even the smile the look perfect. For originality, nothing is permanently original so you should have help of another work even of not meant to be. technique is the best thing about the picture , it gave sense , depth even passion to it , the only thing i dislike about the technique is the dark surrounding the picture , it makes it hard judge the enviroment very well although i can say the prespective is perfect the impact of the picture is comfortable , very in fact
The shot has a very french styling with the single model and small table being reminiscent of small french cafe's. Positioning of the model creates and up and down vector which draws you to the models face down and then back to her face. The choice of the black and white which gives it a greater appearance of age and means that the colours of the models clothing does not affect the photograph. From a personal point I would have shot this photo at a slightly higher angle to suggest that the photographer was walking over. Despite this the angle chosen by the photographer does give the model gravitas and the expression on the model gives you the impression that the model is comfortable and at home as opposed to the obvious positioning of most photos. On a costuming point the outfit appears to be the Autumn outfit of many young women although the addition of a watch would have given an interesting appeal to the photograph. Over all the photograph is well constructed and gives a moving and thought provoking image.
