This is amazing! :la: My! The first time I saw it I thought it was a painting, only to realized in the end it's a photograph. A truly wow to me! Congratulations on the DD. :clap:

One of the few times I have seen blurryness work in something. Awesome. <3

    The blur or unfocus on this photo makes her pores harder to see, which leads you to believe this could be a painting with great detail, but not a low detail photo or a high detail photo. And, it hides her pores without that horrible "airbrushing out pores" effect you see in magazines. What was done to this image gave it a very unique painting look without using an effect in photoshop to turn it into a painting mock up. (Which would probably make it look horrible...) This type of unfocusing only the edges, and only part of her makes it also look very 3D---so it looks somewhere between a painting an a carved block of wood, but carved in a way that one WOULD have carved wood and decorated it elegantly IN ancient times. I stared at this for a full ten minutes before I could figure out if it was a photo, a carving, or a painting---or a 3D render. It's utterly gorgeous. I had to check to make sure for a third time that it was a photo before commenting!

    This is one of the more unique pieces of art I've seen on this entire website. While I do think the quality and expressions are more captivating on some of the other images in this set, I think that this one did deserve the daily deviation as it contains more of the model and looks so much more familiar and yet utterly alien (in the attire) that it stands out above the others, despite being more heavily blurred. It is my favourite of this photo-set because of the prevalence of her hands and pose in a very medieval portrait-esque manner, and the lighting has to be absolutely PERFECT. The eyebrows and the model in general could not possibly have been better picked, either. This definitely deserves a spot in my collection of the most profound images I've stumbled across on deviantART.

Unlike most people commenting, I actually love the blurry-ness of this. It reminds me of a Renaissance painting, the model is beautiful too.

I like this. It is rather unique. But I think I have to agree with some of the other comments. I believe this would have looked just as unique 'in' focus. A lot of people say this looks like a painting, but if that's the case I believe it looks like a painting, in which the photographer was being rushed out of the gallery, and snapped the shot before closing time. Like really in my opinion there are so many other shots in this series that were incredibly well done (I personally like R02, R04, R07). I don't believe that this should have been the one people made the DD. Elina is beautiful, and you have wonderful eye, and a steady hand. I just don't agree with this. It's just my opinion, and I try to be honest. x_X
