Wow… That’s what I thought when I first saw that picture, and, well, honestly, I’m still feeling the same!

Contrast and definition, both high on the foreground and model, nicely fade out in the mist over the successive planes of cliff. This draws nearly all the attention over the model, whose pose, lighting, etc. are nearly perfect to my taste (even though not highly original, but I guess it’s not really a problem here).

The only minor criticism I’d make concerns the (background) composition. Instinctively, I find it a bit odd, yet I have some hard time finding what’s not right… After some reframing attempts, I could not reach a satisfying solution, Perhaps too much squarish ? Or the upper part of the background too much half/half divided ? I think that ideally, I would have liked either a bit more of dark cliff, or a bit more of light mist! ;)

But again, this is a minor issue, the picture gives me a great feeling of cold serenity, with a touch of fantasy… I like it very much! :D

Beau concept. Le N&B lui va bien. Cela dit j'aurais bien voulu voir la même mais avec la demoiselle plus au bord de la falaise (si elle peut le gérer) et du coup derrière elle plus de ciel. Je pense que ça aurait donné plus le vertige !

En tout cas belle réalisation, ta modèle est vraiment courageuse car sur beaucoup de photo tu ne la gâte pas dans les environnements et conditions de shooting :)

merci =)
alors à vrai dire à la base je voulais quelque chose d'un peu plus vertigineux effectivement, avec un cadrage qui s'oriente plus en contrebas, mais la courbe au niveau du sol que tu vois au premier plan c'est un affaissement. Là on est posés sur une falaise sous cavée, avec un bel à pic de quelques dizaines de mètres, donc on a pas pris le risque de s'approcher plus, on était déjà plus que borderline en fait :D
mais à l'arrivée je ne suis pas trop déçu, ça mets plus de roche dans l'arrière plan que ce que j'avais prévu au départ, et j'aime bien le rendu que ça donne. Un gagné pour un perdu, finalement :)

It took me a bit of time to decide whether I should go for color or black and white and B&W had more of the harsh feel I was looking for on this one. But I often tend to prefer color too :)
