From a technical aspect, I think everything about this picture is very nearly pitch perfect. From the lighting, to the pose, to the choice of such an exotic model, everything works about as well as it possibly could. Even the small choices: like having the hair drape over the side of the body that has more lighting, or having the only visible clothing be the black stockings she's wearing) were the right choices. Overall, the image is quite original and has a rather strong impact on the viewer. The way the sword is held over the shoulder and behind the neck gives the viewer lots of material for generating intriguing fantasies.
What do you think?

Here, here. I know nothing about photography. But all those things struck me. All the small aspects hit me one by one, but then the final blast of taking it all in really set me back. Great work. I'm soooo jealous.

BTW, I think your whole Ninja girl set is pretty well done but I like this one especially. Not sure why but I think it's the best of the set.

I don't know if I am simply too tired right now or something but for some reason I am really reminded of Akali for some reason. You should totally cosplay as her.

congrats, beautiful image. it is always easy to critique something that someone else has made... the only comment is perhaps, more shadow and less natural light to give a more dramatic feel. hope this helps/

I'm glad I read the comments before posting. It is not entirely clear that you are the model in this. I came to this image through browsing the photography section of the site and therefore have not seen your profile page, which I am sure many others on this site do as well. It would be helpful if you included more information in the description of this image, such as that you are the model and that the photographer is a fellow named Dan.

For a while there I thought you were Dan until I read the comments! Having said that, this is a great piece, I like it a lot! Good job :)
