    Wow, intense this one. The overall mood is very sombre and a little I’ve-had-one-glass-too-many… You’ve captured it really well, she’s very convincing and I like the idea. Great work as usual!

  • Thank you Angela, she worked hard to get this right, your lovely critique is very encouraging. thanks again, Andrew

    this is an absolutely powerful shot. everything from the title to the body position of the model perfectly capture that “stop the ride, i want to get off” feel. the lighting is the perfect topper, as the model appears to be moving into the darkness. unbeleivable work here!!

  • Thank you so much Michael for your really encouraging comments. Its so nice to receive a critique like this. Thanks again, Andrew

    Ooohhh have I had days like that!
    Great work, pose, lighting and model. A very poignant topic.

  • Thank you kindly! I think we all had a few similar experiences! I was very pleased that Radka carried this off even though she doesn’t even drink herself.
