Stock Model 25 by *Mo-01 is a beautifully stylish stock portrait that is sure to inspire many. Thanks for sharing. ( Featured by LawrenceDeDark )
This work is gorgeous in every way. The model is so radiant in the lighting used, the pose and the facial expression make it unique. It's almost like she is going to punish the viewer for looking at her the wrong way. I also love her hair, not only the way it's styled, but the light exposure on the top down to the darker roots really makes it dynamic. Your composition works really well, not very many photographers can pull off a smack-center pose this way. Despite your composition, lighting, and model being amazing, my favorite thing about this piece is definitely the color. The colors of her dress and the bluish light on her skin and hair all flow together so beautifully, I'm caught in between the cold expression and the warm colors. Amazing contrast. I know this is a stock photo, but it could definitely be just a piece of photography on its' own. Wonderful job!

The Artist thought this was FAIR
37 out of 39 deviants thought this was fair.

Firstly, the good stuffs. This is way above the curve in the quality stakes. There are some pretty high benchmarks set on dA already and this blows the competition out of the water. The tones are remarkable, the pose is dynamic, the cropping and framing are extremely good, not to mention the level of professionalism in the photography. This would be a great photograph in any category, let alone as a stock resource! A gem to be found by any artist looking for high quality stock.


The lens flare, completely and utterly, ruins this image. It is unnecessary and cheapens the overall effect. If it wasn't such an obvious photoshop filter then maybe it would be less intrusive, but because this is a stock image, it's a really unwelcome addition. Stock imagery should allow the artist the freedom to use the stock in any way possible but in this case, if I were to use the stock, and looking through your gallery there are a couple I will be using in the future, the first thing I would have to do would be to remove the lens flare. Luckily there's not much on the model herself, so not too time consuming. But please, there is no need to use the flares, your photography is really way too good to be ruined by it!

Such a small detail sullying an otherwise outstanding stock image. I shall watch your gallery with interest, I have a feeling you will produce some really captivating work.
