Forgetmenot

Photo: Forgetmenot


This is just an awesome photo in every possible way. What makes a photo great for me is when it is clear that the author can completely manipulate the light, the setting, the model, to "speak" his mind. In this case, the head is clearly blown out, but only a dolt would consider that to be an accidental result that dimishes the photo. Obviously, I think it is a masterly stroke that moves this from "very good" to the "super" category. The overexposure is designed to maximize the contrast between the eyes and face. The letters and the body. Amazing work.
