I'm always reluctant to ever comment on something I think has become somewhat ...'saturated' in praise, but I typically comment on anything I wish to fave.. Speaking of, I think you are the only person to have warranted two favorites from me.. (I'm incredibly stingy with faves, maybe not so much in the past when I was 'new' here.. but now I'm pretty reluctant to really consider something 'phenomenal'...)
Anyway, obviously I enjoy the photo very much but I appreciate the content behind it the most. I often find it discouraging to see so many 'angsty' photos of ~women~ in the position of being the one that has been manipulated or 'trodden over' by the opposite sex, so it is refreshing (especially a woman as the source) to see a departure from that frequency, showing the opposite end of the spectrum.
oh really nice *was off looking for some good vector artists & got distracted to here* definitely... but i must ask, why is the queen wearing black as if she is is on the black side, & stepping on the pawn as if she is attacking it? (black queen attacking the black pawn doesn't make to such sense... but its only a *small* casualty)
the title makes this image even better than it already was.
a shoe photographer?! i think someone told me about him once, maybe my photo teacher because i did a series on shoes, or you because i talked to you before...? i dunno...wow, i'm excited. i'll definitely have to check him out.
Your model is beautiful. I like that her face hasn't showed up yet. Yes, those shoes are very much hot...I want those....*sigh* Anyway, very interesting idea! Whereever did you get a pawn of THAT size? I love the place where the photo was taken. Its perfect for the picture, I also like that it's done in black and white, but the lampost looks a little unfocused...was that the idea?
subjugate? yep - but consider how infirm that pose is compared to that of her subject, that chess figure... come a stronger blast, she falls over, blown away by the wind. the chess figure stays. now, who is stronger?
