Nothing in this picture is digitally manipulated. The colors are retouched a bit, but everything else is made on set and is real.

Oh, and many of you seem to be wondering why she is topless in the picture..
Well, the explanation is quite simple, really. She took off her clothes. There, I said it.

I really despise the "Hands on hips, shoulders hunched" look. All it does it make the woman look deformed.

Regardless of that, the overall theme of this shot is very neat.

Interesting. I really like the way her torso is just out of the direct light - it lets the shadows really sculpt and define her, I think.

Wow. The set-up is really great! I love the dress and the tossed around furniture. She's one tall lady. :) Congrats on the DD!

Am I the only one who thinks this is a bit scary?
Don't get me wrong, this work has atmosphere but while looking at it it gives me a strange feeling, that makes me want to run away and hide from that woman.

It has an effect on me ;)
I like it nevertheless, colours, theme and all.
