This is a beautiful photograph all the way top from the model to the environment.

I take it that this is from the same session as "Catholic School Girls Rule", so I immediately link the surrounding environment to those Catholic schools that are set in the middle of nowhere, among vast green fields and with a dark forest somewhere near them. Needless to say the decision to shoot there is brilliant.

While the environment sets the basic mood and gives an orientation it is the model that communicates the main feeling. A feeling of a girl who's mind has been brutally limited by the Catholic dogmas, trying to run away from them, so that she can embrace the freedom she so very much needs to survive.

The shirt of Oscar Wilde is just another sign of her rebelling and I simply love it, as little as a detail it might be.

The only thing that I can not make my mind around is the pose of the hands. The reason behind them being so close to the body, but that is only a minor minus.

Stunning photograph, just stunning.

Much better! I love the model's expression, being "Look at me. I am strong and rebellious.". Her hair, beautifully done and very bright, catching my attention.
Again, perfect Oscar Wilde shirt, cos she is a rebellious Catholic School Girl and she will rule. And she looks like she can kick ass.
But she also looks graceful. Her pose is very, unique. She can balance on one foot in those cute heels.

The scenery is so mysterious and indeed, a dark, dark forest. The river on the side is so cool and makes it look like she is going on a stroll in the forest and she is not going to be messed with.

Originality? Need I go on? It's original. COMPLETELY/
Vision on her face is a little blurry but it doesn't really affect the photograph.
Overall, perfect. Just fix the blur

Yet again, much like most to all of the other deviations you have posted on here, you have again done something completely artistic and gotten way too much attention for it.

I'm jealous of your camera. But your picture-taking skills are horrible.

This setting is great, very ominous. I'm not sure if I'm a fan of the one leg stand.
Still, cool shot!

this brings to mind the earlier work you did in a similar setting with the stags skull & antlers...if so beautiful for the way it embodies renewal and transformation...your poise looks like the stag exudes as much confidence in this expression of it's virility through you as it might of in it's previous incarnation.
the location for such a picture was very nicely chosen...it sets up the path of travel excellently for the stag after leaping down from the other side into the stream...running through the living waters of renewal and the making it up the embankment on the new side of the stream with a magnificent leap...all while you embody the constant movement of the stag in a trotting forward movement while holding a nirvanic look.

in the dark, dark forest of your unconscious mind on the other side of the garden that you most often walk through but hardly enter...or something like that, right?

I think these are amongst the least spectacular shots you do, at least in comparison to the average shot in your gallery. These work almost like "snap shots" for me and don't seem to fit in with the usual quality of your work. The model, of course, is not an inch less attractive here as elsewhere, but the surroundings just don't seem to fit, and it all seems unnatural somehow.

In my personal opinion
(because I remember reading a critique on one of the other photos of yours, criticizing the pose)

I liked the pose from the "Catholic School Girls Rule" and this background.

But none the less great photo :)

That's the closest match I could find for you. Hopefully the artist will respond with the exact pair, but if not, you might like these anyway. Haha.

Oh, that's really nice.
For some reason, the colour of her hair really gets to me. I like it.

I might just be being stupid, but maybe the reason why her hands are so close to her body is because she is trying to embrace herself, hold on the her own identity instead of being bound as Catholic school. (as I also see this as related to that particular image)
