hope you like it :)

After some sugestions for the image title, I accepted *NuclearSeasons and ~Riskless sugestion "ICARUS"... Thank you very much to them and to all other authors who gaved me their sugestions !

Icarus (Greek: καρος, Latin: Íkaros, Etruscan: Vicare) is a character in Greek Mythology. He was the son of the artificer Daedalus. Icarus was famous for his death by falling into the Icarian Sea near Icaria, the island southwest of Samos that still bears his name, when he flew too close to the sun, melting the wax holding his artificial wings together. His plight was routinely alluded to by Greek poets in passing, but was told in a nutshell in Pseudo-Apollodorus, Epitome of the Biblioteca) (i.11 and ii.6.3). Latin poets read more philosophy into the myth, briefly reported in Hyginus Fabulae 40, and at greater length in Ovid's Metamorphoses (viii.183-235) and his Art of Love. In the fifteenth century Ovid became the source for the myth as it was rediscovered and transformed as a vehicle for heroic audacity and the poet's own aspirations, by Renaissance poets like Jacopo Sannazaro and Ariosto, as well as in Spain.

As the suggestor puts it, Icarus by *ABrito is a magnificent shot from one of the best AN photographers on DA. The graceful form of the model, the softness of her body,the roughness of her restraints and the soft lighting; everything is absolutely perfect! ( Suggested by baKIN and Featured by Helewidis )

Wow! Everything about this shot is amazing. Concept, lighting, shading, angles, contrasts, tone - and on and on... And of course the model herself; she 'fits' perfectly. Great work! -- Or perhaps I should say *yet another* great work!
