I really like the play of gold and black in this picture. I'm wondering whether I'd like it even more if the picture was a little less hazy (obviously you added some haze on purpose), not crystal clear, but just a little sharper. I think the combination of elements (the curtains in the background, the texture and the patterns on the corset and the couch, and the body positioning, work well together). I find myself wondering if the result would be better still if you'd cut of a little less picture space to the side of the left elbow (left elbow for me, I mean the right elbow of the model).
Why thank you, gestielftekatze (interesting name !) In my opinion the second version is the prettiest one ! The gold & black contrasts work more beautiful here. But again, that's my opinion As I already said, I think it is a pretty work
