Heh, I should've made a more "giving"/helpful comment, though.
Shadows and clothing, as part of a person, being all black and part of the background is visually interesting. Makes things a bit more "mystical", for what it's worth... Made one such photo myself. (Favored deviation on my page.) The communication part of it isn't all that interesting most of the time, when playing around and learning.
Incredible. A spectacular shot in the first place (for I am a sucker for a hot body with beads of sweat/water) but then you continue it to the next logical stage.
You never cease to amaze me with you tallents
I definitely don't find it necissary to purchase the stock...
I usually use my own, or others found here at DA and over at stockexchange.com...
but as a stock artist myself, I like to help support the professional nature of stock photogs.
plus...I just really liked this picture.
