this is as close to monochromatic as one can get; lovely the soft contrasts and how shadows help to blend model and her clothes into the brocade wallpaper. the pearl skin color becomes the focus against all the matte back- and fore-ground. lovely, lovely.
i had some more time to think about this photo. guess it's mesmerizing. i want the camera to shift to another place without that bronze plate (I can live with the light fixture) and change shoes to something like chukkha boots. The plate and shoes call way too much attention to themselves; instead, focus on that monochromatic look. Plus, it seems that texture is important here, with brocade wllppr and the ribbed sweater. But we let the gloss of the plate and boots interfere. That way we have only the texture of the cloth and the pearl of her skin.
