hey àsìkò, different is good i see, something missing, not sure really but i think perhaps the hair is too light? but that's more a preference for me , can't say something is missing, maybe it's all there but we can't see it?

Hey asiko....really nice idea here. Teachnique is rather sloppy but in this case it's the idea that counts,,, email me the original file and ill check it out! smile
Nice work. I see what skee is saying about your sloppiness. High key portaits aren't very easy on black skin.

great PP asiko. Something missing? For me it would be the shoulder... a faint shadow of the shoulder.

But then again, it depends what you wanted.

Asiko, I really like this image the way it is but if you still feel like experimenting with it, I would perhaps try to compress the tonal range to a more high tone i.e. (darken the dark areas and lighten the highlights) but it works for me just as is.
hey asiko,

very nice results. i like this experiment...particularly the subtle highlights. however, i understand how you could feel that this shot is incomplete. perhaps selective coloring...the hair, eyebrows, eyelashes and lips. i don't think that the selective coloring should be too strong...perhaps light tints.

Just a little bit less exposure on the face and maybe a bi ore sadow on it....but its a fantastic sho...its ngih impossible to get shots like these spot on but...9/10 anyway...

For me I like it (sorry love it) when I see people think outside the box ojn their images. The idea behind this shot is there, you may not have hit the nail completely on the head but who cares, I really like this. It's really going on me as I stare at the image. Keep em coming, keep the ideas flowing bro.

such a cool idea. I like the way the glitter on her eyelid is accentuated by the light. I'm not sure if something is missing. for me if there's anything that needs tweaking, it's the hair - something's not quite right there. Apart from that, nice concept.

High Key Portrait? I find a lot of way to do it.

Ade this is different. It takes a while to absorb, understand and begin to appreciate shots like this.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of the sort.
Good weekend dude!

Personally I think its too light. Usually this white wash is very good for white people. It will pass as "art" though. he he...

first impression is that it is a great idea and very nicely presented. when i look a bit closer then i see the sloppiness mentioned earlyer but the result is great it is a great work!!!

nice one! Great concept. I think the guy drom chromasia did something similar. Not sure i could shoot it myself but to improve it a little bit more contrast..

Yeah its does seem incomplete...but I am speechless concerning what to add to it. Its beautiful, believe me anything I say would spoil it. Its simply wonderful...

Simply outstanding!!! No way is it incomplete. You are a master of the lens.

I like this but I think the contrast is a bit too soft. Perhaps the hair, eyes, brows, and lips should be a bit darker?
