EDIT Many people are telling me that the photo reminds them of the monster from Pan's Labyrinth, and I agree. I am a fan of this movie, but it wasn't my inspiration for this photo.Maybe it was subconsciously. Anyway, I really like FATM's songs, their music has an impact on me. I always found this particular song interesting and it made my imagination run wild. So this is my way of depicting this mysterious "girl with one eye".
First of all, I'd like to say how much I love this picture and how original it is! The idea is great, especially being inspired by music, and the execution is fantastic! It immediately caught my eye, and I must confess, when I looked a little closer, I had to look twice. When I realized (yeah I'm not a quick understander) that the eye was actually painted on the hand, I was amazed. Such skills, not only in photography but also in drawing!
The colours are beautiful, not extreme or intense, yet very calming and perfectly suitable for the concept. Composition and light are wonderful too, nothing that could be done differently actually. Overall just a stunning photograph that you should be extremely proud of!
I'm sorry, this should be a critique. But I don't have any critique, because it's so awesome.
Hey, I'm not a pro photographer, just a beginner, but here is my opinion
I like your idea here, still i dont feel confortable with the right eye (the one from the model, not the one on the hand) Either we see it too much, or not enough. IE i would either change the model posture to have it fully visible, or i would either have to move her hand a bit to her right to have it totally hidden ( you could either done it to totally hide either)
All the rest works for me, colors, frame, focus distances etc ....
Ohmygoodness, wow, great take on the song~ I love seing how people interpret other artist's art through their own. It's incredibly interesting~ What a fantastic concept- Have you seen Pan's Labyrinth? The photo reminds me of that mystical and creepy movie. Great job
