There is only one word for how impossibly striking this piece is, and that word is GORGEOUS. Just incredible, incredible work.

I think one of the strongest parts of the photo is the use of color. The faded red-to-burgundy and the insightful use of browns just gives the white daisies more power as they're surrounded by the decay. Another truly astounding thing is the very makeup itself--usually, with photos with such drastic makeup, I can visibly spot the dividing line of what's real and what isn't; however, I must have stared at this picture for a full three minutes but I can't for the life of me spot any discrepancy. Whether the photographer did this spectacular makeup job or if someone else did, well done, you!

The only thing I would say that isn't along the lines of "OH MY GOD" is the fact that the signature is right in the middle of the picture. It really takes away from the overall tension of sloping neck and shoulder, which are one of my favorite parts.

Really, truly astonishing job. Very well done.

The signature is, from my personal point of view as artist myself, exactly where it was supposed to be! Because if I had any god to believe I'd say just "OH-MY-GOD"!

You're just 16yo as I noticed reading... well... I couldn't allow myself all the instruments and technology to totally express my creativity and eventual talents apart pencils and few other fine arts stuff... and also inspirations to come up with artworks like your photos did spread so much by now that seems a lot easier for a teenager to express such a great talent nowadays.
But, as a matter of fact, most of your artworks are a 'jaw dropping' assault to my eye and a challenge for brain's sanity {jealousy and envy are dangerous maladies}.
I talk warmly to you as only another artist or a big brother {I'm 38yo} only would do inviting you and encouraging you to never and I mean just never stop doing what you're doing, never stop to grow up {improve} as a woman and, most of all, as an artist. Your works already lead you to that direction. Just a suggestion... try to express yourself also with old fine-arts techniques and tools more than with photography and photoshopping. It's just in your own interest only. And for the fine-arts' sake!

Your talent is heart-warming.

When I saw this picture, I could not stop wondering what the story of this girl was. Why was she hurt, who did this to her, who put the flower there to try to make it beautiful... I like pictures that makes my brain go in overdrive...
