Queen takes Pawn by lorrainemd Queen takes Pawn by lorrainemd
Subjugating ones subject was the concept.
Michele's gorgeous legs were the means. ( and not to mention - very hot shoes)
Guy Bourdin [link] and his wacky/fashiony shoe photograpy was the inspiration.

Ahhh....the games we play.

beautiful. and sort of funny, in a way. for some reason the pawn reminds me of a man, and she wears the pants. :)

I love that she has her "very hot shoes" so well-placed, but I think the pawn is getting a good view up her skirt and really doesn't mind a foot to the head. Well done. :+fav:

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.

Nice imagery/theme...

oh really nice *was off looking for some good vector artists & got distracted to here* :+fav: 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)

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?

Wow.. I happened upon this one again (by clicking on favorites of favorites of favorites, galleries, favorites, etc..).

I can't say enough how awesome this picture is.. I absolutely love it, and my heart leaps with every time I view it.

Excellent work.

I think this is the third time I've commented on this.. not sure though. :D

Wow, nice shoes.
Tho im curious why chose this angle rather than rotating a few degrees to your left.
Looks like there's some cloning on the right, so maybe that's why.

Really terrific coloring too.
