Model: Michelle Antoinette

In a recent trip to San Diego I met this stunning woman. She made such an impact on my life in such a brief meeting. She is someone I will never forget.

Oh just sweet to see your photography back again! :tighthug:

The composition, concept and model altogether are perfectly matched; Michelle herself is an amazing amalgam of Punk-Goth, 80s styling & "scene" gal within varying violet tones; how she works fringed locks with dreads make for a tumultuous sea of hair. Also that space-printed off-shoulder tee-shirt blends a surreal "interdimensional" feel over round curves hinted in her shoulderline and anchored with a lacy thick strap. :star::heart::star:

Her blow of tobacco smoke is captured at the right second, the thickness having a gravity and complimenting a sense of introspect. And the fact that you used a downward perspective angle only makes this stronger with focus on eyelashes giving it a illusion of "closed" eyes (which is normally associated with sleep or inner-thought). And nice job with slightly blurring the background for focusing effect. :star:

It's great to hear that she left an influence on you both artwise and in life which is captured well here. There's many emotions felt alongside an eclectic blending of styles. Simply Stellar!
