Overall amused by prominance of religious icons in mirror reflection of half clad woman, and her expression, i wondered if it was =ve or -ve towards them.
Iliked the murky lighting, and disliked the crop. seemed more like my original before editing; not your finished work, and ive seen and respected your work for a number of years. its a surprise.
I think the concept of $50 project is a great idea, but extremly limiting, my impression is try increasing the budget to $75 or $100 to see if production value increase.
The image made me think, and i like that, i keep looking at it, beyond a few seconds, and decided to crit.
There is a familur feel to the image that i cant put my finger on, perhaps its years of catholic school indoctrination, i remembering the word from my www.acp.org.au contemporary portraiture teacher (kelly ann denton) reinforceing that everything we can produce, has been done before, so nothing is new, but we can provide our re-interpretatation to make it refreshed or current.
