Not my first Saju90 critique, nor will it be my last. Her work is generally fabulous and beyond reproach and I enjoy it thoroughly.

That said, there are occasional missteps. Not to say, necessarily, that this particular photograph qualifies, but there are certain elements I found...jarring.

First of all, I must speak of the Vision and Originality of this piece. I can totally see what the artist(s) was trying to do here - combining a still shot with a model-movement shot in one frame is a very original idea and the vision it takes to come up with the concept is quite good. With different execution, this might be a great technique. I really think the high-contrast monochromatic scheme is brilliant here. Saju's body has a lot of dynamism, allowing for very subtle chiaroscuro effects along her abdomen in particular.

Now, on to the other part :P While the idea is there, I think the execution suffers. The technique is not solidly done in such a way that it looks different from, say, the model controlling a sneeze mid-shot. If her face was as crisply focused as her core, with the hair the only dynamic and blurred portion, this might have worked better.

Overall, I think it's a great idea with lackluster execution. As an experiment, it is a success. Now to refine it!

Luck to you, and beautiful work as always.

Nice photo, although I feel the kinda blurry/out of focus near head is disturbing an otherwise great shot.
