To me... this seems absolutely flawless.

There are so many things that you've got going for you here... I can't possibly go through them all.

BUT, I can try. First, and most prominent in the picture, is the fact that you have a stunning body. (In it's entirety, not just the "good parts".) Second is the lighting... I want to know how this was done! Third, this image brings to mind so many emotions, the greatest of which is passion... which is what art should really always do.

If I had the money I would buy a print... because even among my favorites, this image is my favorite.

Thank you very much for your kind comment ^^
I should edit the description and write how I did it there, I have answered this in a few of the comments made but there are quite a few to look through ^^ I used a huge squared softbox behind me, and the studio had white walls so I'm sure the light also bounced off them. It was one of the simplest setups I ever did, but it took quite some time, using a self timer and bending down, waiting for the right moment and then "swing" up so my hair would look like that. I got many weird shots, was hard to make my face look relaxed while doing acrobatics :P

Ah, I see... Well, thank you for taking the time to answer me anyway then. x3
Sometimes the simple things look the best... and yes, I thought of the self timer issue.

It's safe to say that you've done a wonderful job. The sheer number of comments here should say as much, and I'm sure that there are more to come. :la:

I was wondering how you did the flying hair thing. Did you use a fan? I guess so. It must have been chilly then! Nice job! Now let me look through your other pictures!
