Roland Hoffmann beautiful creation, very well performed and a kind of mysterious title, which helped to pay more attention to the first perception I got from this picture.

Jared Christopher Martin beautifully done, subtle and stunning, radiates mystery and modern mythic iconography. The figures are dancers, the setting is modern yet I can't escape the feeling I'm in a timeless labyrinthe on the way to find the Minotaur

Roberto De Mitri well, Dana... the result you've got is very charming. a perfectly successful technique. which is able to create an almost dramatic scenic effect. The meeting/clash of the Ego, maybe…
and I do not know why, but I know that it reminds me of the Iliad myth. maybe it speaks of the fate of Helen of Troy? “O Nemesi o Afrodite: queste sono le due possibilità della bellezza femminile… “ Either Nemesis or Aphrodite: these are the two possibilities of female beauty ...

Dana Winkelman Thanks to everyone that commented, rated, and viewed.

Claudio. I appreciate it.

Michaela. Thanks for the encouragement. Not too sure I am brilliant but maybe the photo?

Oleg. Truthfully, most of my shooting is without any strict concept in mind and I try to let the work be a collaboration between the model and me. With that said, in this session we were trying to get a shot with her interacting with herself (if that makes sense). The final result reminded me of "facing one's self" or learning the "truth" about one's self, which loosely reminded me of Dharma (the right way of living or path of rightness). Basically, that we need to face our own fears, anxiety, prejudice, before we are enlightened. Anyway, that was the idea behind the title and what the shot meant to me.

Bertrand. Thanks for commenting.

Stanislav. Thanks. Not sure it is perfect but glad that you thought so.

Roland. I am glad the title got you to pause. My comment to Oleg kind of explains my thinking.

Claude. Thanks, always good to hear from you.

Bernard. Appreciate the comment.

Jared. Interesting take as usual. I think she (they) are like dancers and the labyrinthe, at least in my thinking, might be the mind. I really appreciate the comment.

Dana Winkelman Roberto. Wasn't trying to leave you out above but needed to start new comment. Yes, my thought is that it represents self reflection, which is a form of facing the Ego. It is interesting that both you and Jared thought of mythological references (the Minotaur from Ovid and Helen from the Illiad). I hope she is not my Nemesis but has the beauty for it, as well as the attributes of Aphrodite. All the best. Dana...

Malcolm Lind Brilliant impression of the movement, well done to imagine the scene and capture it in one.

Dana Winkelman Thanks Malcolm. It took "a few" tries to get the right shutter speed and movement. Basically, she posed, moved, and posed during the exposure. I love working with her because she is willing to try all my crazy ideas. All the best. Dana...

Dana Winkelman Thanks PE. It took a few tries but we got it done. It was a bit hard to get her timing just right during the exposure.
