Images like yours, and this one starkly puts to eternal shame any computer generated perfection... This is on a league no artificial creation can come close to. Your model is a superb specimen, but your vision affords me to enjoy this perfection. This is very profound.
I thought this was a photo representing how models are too thin now-a-days, but a lot of the comments below I see things like "perfect body!"
Her grace and pin point muscle control--look at her stand on her tippy toes!--is amazing, and that is what I find beautiful in this piece, and the contrst of the silouette is magnificent.
But as for what I feel with the photo it makes me a little sad. Even in the darkest shadows on her, her hips bones are sticking out enough to catch some light. Lovely model, but she could really use more meat on her, especially for her height and how big her bust is--back problems. Maybe it's just because I've recently been hospitalized with underweight issues, but this photo really caught my attention. Probably not in the ways you had hoped it to, but it did.
I think (as I male who loves girls with a lot of meat to grab) that this girl has a truly amazing and healthy body. Some people are just naturally that way, and she looks perfectly in shape to me. There's a difference between being fit and underweight.
I'm in the military and I spend a lot of time around fit women--she doesn't look like one. She doesn't look unhealthy, but she does look underweight to me for someone of her height.
Like I said, it was my own feelings about the photo, and at first impression I really did think it was a message about today's modeling industry. Beautiful girl, but could use a little more on her so at least her hip bones and ribs dont stick out to where they are still highlighted even in the darkest shadow sections of her body.
You are entitled to your opinion, and I respect that. However, don't you think it's kinda disrespectful to the model and the photographer to discuss things like her amount of body fat (or lack thereof), things that have nothing to do with the artistic endeavour that they are trying to get across? I mean, I've never modeled, but if someone uploaded an artistic photo of me and people started discussing my weight... I don't know. It'd feel pretty shitty, I must say.
Welcome to the world of modeling. You're judged by how you look--if you can't handle it, don't model.
But that's not the point. I just said, in my original post, I was confused on what the message of the art piece was. I was actually commenting on my feelings towards the art, and what my first impression was--not so specifically the model's weight. And there are actually a lot of artistic photos that do focus on a model's physique as the "message" being sent.
I was just looking at a computer-generated pic of a woman for a gaming site and I love how Stana's pose almost mimics that! She has such perfect lines and grace to her that it is a bit difficult to think she is real. (I do hope this comes out as the compliment it is meant to be!)
