This photo has an expression of a women finding her confidence again. Your pose has a positive and encouraging glow to it that would benefit a female viewer, in my opinion. When models and cameras get or work together, a bunch of captivating material can be produced in just one shot. Quite remarkable, even though I am not a photographer, but I tend to think like one for artistic purposes.
Thank you very much. This image was taken right after I cut off my hair and dyed it Red. I had just gained 15 pounds, due to medication, which I actually loved. For the first time since before I got sick I had a bum and fuller breasts. I felt more like myself than I had in ages. Since then I've had to switch meds, so am back down to being fairly skinny. Growing up, I always felt that to be a woman you need a womans body, which includes curves (I was raised looking at 60's pinups, and both my older sister and mother are well endowed, which is why I had these feelings)
Now that I am 28, and have had a chance to grow, spiritually, and mentally, I know that a woman is a woman, when she becomes her own person. Feels free to express herself, plus can handle taking on others problems, including starting and raising a family. I think it goes the same for men.
The fact that you were able to get so much out of this image is truly very cool. Because, yes, I was just starting to regain confidence, in this moment .
Wonderful shot. Love the pose.
