Daily Deviation

Given 2011-06-20
*majcy92 says; Wow! This work is captured in the right moment and it clearly shows the power of beauty the model possesses.
*phydeau says; A true sense that she's actually simply floating in mid-air. Beautiful, captivating, and all-around technically perfect. Best shot I've seen in a while.
Antigravitation by *serg-vostrikov ( Featured by ScENeYmE )

Wow! I'll start by saying that this photo really grabbed my attention! It really stood out and is a really unique and original photograph!

I love all the colours that are highlighted and emphasised in the piece as well. The Yellow really stands out to me, and has a lovely combination of colour in contrast to the models skin and the background.

My only criticisms are that I thought when the picture was blown up to full size, the models skin seemed a little to smooth although soft. Also I felt there was a little to much foreground but that's personal preference ;)

Overall a fantastic photo I love it! :+fav:

Five stars across the board! And that's saying something, as I rarely give five stars for originality. They say there's nothing new under the sun, but wow it's amazing how a new take can surprise you.
The impact is incredible. It immediately grabs attention and makes you keep looking. It's alive in color, texture, movement. The composition is spot-on. The viewer truly gets a sense that she's simply floating in mid-air.
That's some amazing flexibility on the model's part. I also like how her hands are positioned.
Honestly, I'm looking for anything I could nit-pick to improve this one. I can't. This is simply amazing! :clap:

Lovely, very nicely done. I don't know how you did it, (the models pose), but it's a superb shot.

Was this done in one take or was it a composite? Which ever it was, it's a great image! The thrust and power of the model contrasted with the gentle float of the scarf makes for a memorable photo.

Beautiful capture. We are also :floating:when seeing such smoothness just walking in the air. ;)

And the decaying background against that waving yellow gives a very nice contrast to your great idea of fighting the ugliness associated with the heavy gravity seen in all bodies.

About the model's movement is just breathtaking...seems clearly a one time shot where everything is in the right place and, probably won't happen exactly like this ever again!

No so many, actually. I do not remember exactly, but it was something about 10-15 tries for jumping and the same for jumping with a fabric...
