Sometimes the hardest lesson to learn is that one should always have a Plan B. The last three photoshoots have been filled with lessons of what to do when the people you depend on don't show up for game time. The answer is to stay positive, have a backup plan, and keep on trucking as though nothing happened.

For this particular image, I reunited with the gorgeous Valeria from my 'Valkyrie' shoot last week, and experimented with a different style. I hope you all enjoy my foray into uncharted waters!

The contrast and colors in this are AMAZING! The model's eyes lock with the viewers, almost peering deeply into the individual, and couple this with the attitude expressed as a whole and you're left with a very strong, as you've stated with the photo's title, allure. Also purple, and very similar purples at that, so you aren't left with any conflicting light/darkness - exception to the eyes where that extra bit of darkness draws you in.

Just ... fantastic.

I always love your in-depth comments, and I really appreciate this one! Valeria is a fantastic model, and she really brought a magnetic aspect to her image.

Well, I come from the train of thinking where sharing a thought, a full thought, is better than expressing that something is enjoyable. Is best to tell someone why, if you can, so they know EXACTLY what's good. (Same goes for bad, mind you.)

Most welcome on the comments. Keep making good art!

Also: I was thinking you might try your hands at a "Sanderson Sisters" photoshoot, if you could find the right people. My brain says you could manage that very well.
