First time critiquing your work (please don't kill me lol :stab:) while the colour and movement overall grabbed me very easily (so I'll give it high "impact") I think the streaming fabrics on the back-side of the woman don't blend in too well, this may be because there is some fog or smoke and you were trying to give the effect of that obscuring it, but if that's the case, perhaps a bit more natural distribution of that smoke in other areas would make it more convincing (left seems to have a lot, right seems very clear) perhaps even try making an encompassing gentle whirlwind of smoke around her to enhance the essence of wind and movement :spin:

Asides from that, not bad overall, like I said - eye-catching, and it also feels very classy too, now why can I imagine this on a wine commercial or something? :greetings:

This is a fantastic picture that shows both the simplistic beauty of the woman pictured but also the fasinating motions captured by the cloth. While the picture is stunning and intriguing, I feel like something is forcing it to lose is luster. The only thing I would change in the picture would be to link the woman visually with the cloth either through a more dynamic pose to match the chaos surrounding her or possibly just changing the subtle red that she's wrapped in to match the color of the cloth surrounding her. Over all, the photo is wonderfully executed and uses the lines and intense red to draw all our attention exactly where you wanted it! I just wish I could see more of the dynamic heart we know you for!

"Fun with fabric" indeed! I actually like how the model's static pose and almost stoic expression are in such contrast to the frenetic movement of the fabric ribbons. It's as though she's the eye of a storm.

it's like one of those cosmetics ads where the model's hair billows away from her face and the fabric fans and frames her entire body. It's gorgeous!! And it definitely captures and embodies the meaning to the name iris =) :+fav:

I am really inspired and impressed at your ability outside of painting. The water series are wondrous in example.
