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:

WOW beautiful. Inspiring. Gave me some ideas :) may I ask how you lit it? Looks like a soft box or big umbrella upper right. Is there anything other than that? backlit at all?

SUUUUPPPEER! and I really love your water stuff as well. I'm into water recently as you can tell from my gallery ;) I've been looking for ways to incorporate it into some shoots with models. :) :)

A flower in bloom! Not only the beautiful model, but the movement captured of the clothes like petals in the wind makes the hole picture a flawless composition.

This reminds me of Within Temptation's song "All I Need." I don't know if you know what band that is or ever listened to that song, but maybe that's where you've got your inspiration from. Check it out. If I mentioned the wrong song title or band, my apologies. My memory sucks.

*i'd write a critique but i don't have a subscription*
I like the fact there is the scarf things that come out like appendages or extensions of herself and her body as if she was looking for something subconciouslly like someone to sit and talk to. Another good part is that she looks at the viewer/camera with a seduction but with a note of sadness and/or loneliness. How she is holding one of the lower ones looks as if she is afraid of an answer or wants something to cling to.
