Nice piece, love the eye peering out on the magazine. I'd have preferred to have dropped the bottle and side table in the top left (little distracting, but like the natural looking light. Think I'd have cropped the crews in the cupboard out as well? great pic though and conjures up a great lazy day type theme.
i could look at this like a fetish shot. that would be easy, but it would also ignore the work you put into the lighting and positioning of the model. you play with the light well and, i think, successfully use it to sculpt your subject. the pallet is nostalgic giving the photo a dreamy feel. . . going back remembering the big sister of a friend who was old enough and so very cruelly enough to allow her to find her in the most painful of all situations for a boy or man, "you can look, but you can't touch." as a minor point, i don't know if i'm annoyed by the distraction of the soda bottle or if i appreciate the realism it adds. nice work, val-mont.

I think you should spend some time removing hot pixels, you have a stuck pixel on your camera. If you zoom in on her thigh, her right thigh, under side you can see a white pixel, a stuck one. I get hot pixels allot too, just thought you should know just incase.
I like the idea a lot. Personally I'd have lost the bottle and with the forced perspective I'd have looked for a model with extra small feet. I'm sure her feet are petite, but with the perspective they look big. Subtle darkening of the background would have been nice to, to draw the eye more.
Really well taken. I love the color tones - the skin tone on the sofa (leather) matches the skin tone on the model; and while the face of the model is covered, the magazine is showing a peek of a face... dont know if these both were intentional. I dont understand the significance of the soda bottle on the side; thankfully the color there matches the overall color tone as well... Overall very well done... Thanks for sharing.
