Nem tudom, mi az ütősebb: a kompozíció, vagy az a réveteg, szinte már püthiai tekintet. Minél tovább nézem, annál inkább album borítóra való. Mondjuk egy Maybeshewillre.

Whoa, there is a lot here. Your hair, pose, cicada, and expression come together and create such an amazing, yet ambiguous story.

Would you mind if I did an illustration of this image? I absolutely looove. I live in South Texas, so cicada's (or heat bugs as a friend calls them) are part and parcel of what my childhood was. Not to mention pretty girls (which weren't so much a part of my childhood) are another favorite subject!

Now that I have time to comment on this; I saw it earlier today and made a mental note to leave some form of crit on it, because I love this image.

My first thoughts are going to be on the lighting. I love what you've done. What kind of lighting, if any, did you use? Any lighting mods? The light you have is extremely soft, and cool-- I love it. It makes your model seem so soft, and that's probably what I love so much about it.

And your choice of colour palette. I love how EVERYTHING works to form a soft blend of dreamy colour. Her skin tone, hair, the BG, even the cicada and her tattoo. Amazing choices, and whatever postwork you've done on this enhanced it so much-- very well done.

The only thing I'm going to pick at, is the sharpness of the cicada versus the model. Was it intentionally made sharper? If so, why?

But, amazing image. Are you going to make a series out of it-- I clicked on the link to your other image, and came across the similar themed photo, which prompted the question.

if only all cicada's were so beautifully framed as this. The detailed line work of the tatt works wonders to bring together the body of the woman and the wings. reminiscent of the iconic image associated with silence of the lambs but of a more counter culture beauty in it.
