This piece certainly lives up to the name Black Celebration. The black and white gives a very 'stilled' effect and the lighting technique is wonderful (with a slight sense of robustness in the given female). Very strong focus on the model and it has a very clear vision of showcasing her. Having the piercing blue eyes as the central focus of this piece I am simply amazed by the intensity of the pair. They are both hypnotic and perplexing. The metallic paint (?) on the model gives a very strong and powerful look, while the flowing hair adds a touch of grace. *luciekout has done a fine job in capturing the power of a woman’s defiant stare and has left me breathless.
What do you think?

Very cool set here. Creative, and eye catching, but not over done. Nice work, and EXCELLENT choice on naming the set. Black Celebration is my favorite DM album. Nice to see a younger generation enjoying their work.

Well, I guess 29 isn't that far off 39. DM continues to be a great band, and one of if not the best live band I've ever seen. Oh yeah, I still like the photo set...:))
