:icontenkamchi-sama:
the aftertaste of death... a truly well chosen title. It might be me, but i think of this really thin person that she's very attractive and fits perfectly for this motive.
what i really love, are her red hair, and her hands, that slightly tug at the sling. her hands, that look as if they're not hers.
her shoulder, with the dirt on it, as if she had been hanged, taken down and put to the ground, and as if she just got up to walk away make everything look somewhat... how do i say... realistic?

her expression is not to be seen, which makes also a really nice impression to me.

her fingernails are left as they are... maybe you could have put dirt under them, as if she had been digging in the earth.
but like this it's also nice... it somehow changes the whole impression, the way i feel about this.

i have to say, that i also love that skin texture that is very beautifully visible around the area of her shoulder.
her dress makes her slim body fade into the background. leaving the question, if she actually has been there?

all in all a beautiful picture - actually with no story as it seems, but that makes it so interesting, since it's the one who looks at it, who comes up with his/her own idea of what is the story.

Beautifully done!

First i would say that Natalia fascinates me at the first view with this masterpiece of art , so thank you ! At my point of view this is a vision of a self righteous suicide . Her self demon's face is clearly rising from her left shoulder showing her distress.Her disformed forearms pulled that skinny body into death whith all of of her life . Take me away it's what i saw in this wonderful art work . You can't imagine how i appeciate the beauty of this art . This is one of the most stunning pic i ever seen i my life . You are awsome Natalia !

Очень эмоциональное фото.Особенно бросается в глаза контраст хрупкого обнаженного тела и грубой веревки.Из-за положения рук тело кажется будто вывернутым наизнанку,что еще больше подчеркивает его ломкость.Также можно заметить интересную связь между петлей на шее и татуировкой в виде дерева на руке девушки,но это уже наверное моя собственная фантазия) Фото кажется очень динамичным благодаря положению рук,пальцам,цепляющимся за веревку,которые,кстати,тоже выглядят очень гармонично-чередование пальцев и витков на веревке очень экспрессивно.
Вы великолепный фотограф,и я искренне восхищаюсь вами и вашими работами,они прекрасны

Great photograph. I love the colours. The dirt on the models back, the position of her hands and the frailty of her whole pose are perfect as well. You really captured the essence of hopelessness and despair here.

Ah, gosh. The message hits like a 70, 000 voltages lightning, you know. The pose, the angle, they're all disturbingly fitting and beautiful. What I like most is how she barely holds the rope and not gripping it. It delivers much more this way. The tattoo is a nice touch, it blends into the picture but still stands out on its own.
I have to disagree with Phan Thom-art though, since the dirtied shoulder blade is an outstanding touch of the picture and I think the girl is just perfect in this shot. I don't think any other would be able to 'flesh out' the message this way.
All and all, it's a beautiful, beautiful picture. Congrats for the well-deserved DD :heart:

Gahh, so thin! I know some people who are super thin, despite eating like hippos, but even they aren't that thin. No offense intended, I'm just amazed.

damn, you should gain some weight, it's suitable for the photo and it's a good photo, don't get me wrong on that but it's not healthy at all

Yeah, and magically all models have that disorder? That disorder is actually really rare. Most models just starve for the camera.

Kiimei Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2013
Not that rare as you think. The point here is that her weight is her problem, no one here has the right to judge her and tell her to gain weight since nobody knows what her problem is. Maybe she starves herself or maby she is just skinny as I said, before judging people find out more about them. That's what I am trying to say.

Actually, when you post a picture on an art website it gives anyone full permission to judge you in any way.

Yes, but regardless, it isn't any of your business what kind of person she is. This is a piece of art, this isn't a discussion about a person and their weight. Keyword: theirs, not yours.
