The character appears extremely comfortable in the selected pose, quasi-cropping of her by the smoke in the foreground and the tempting look adds a level of mystery to the piece. The colors work well together and it is applied in an expertly fashion. The details of the intricacies of the fan and dress read well and do not appear muddy as sometimes can occur. The hand holding the hand appears strained and is more difficult to depict and read then the rest of the piece, and seems to assert itself as the focal point of a wandering eye. Some of the nuances of the upper chest also do not make an appearance. The subtle shading and, again, the choice of design and depiction of clothes and background, are evidence enough of the artist's ability. A great piece of work.
It's always a pleasure to see a good photomanipulation What I find really appealing about this artwork is the red vivid colours - it's instantly draws your attention. The background is empty and nicely blurred which helps the Fire Lady to stand out. The fire effects are superb.
The composition is great. It's very minimal, which I think is a very suitable in this case. The background doesn't take away the focus of the subject, in this case it's a beautiful Lady with a burning fan.
The Lady's face doesn't look passionate, she appears to be deep in thought, like she's calculating her next move.
The only thing that disappoints me is the smoke effect. It doesn't look natural and there is too much contrast between the smoke, her skirt and her left sleeve. I know some people like very sharp pictures but I find them a bit off-putting and unnatural. But it's just my personal opinion that you shouldn't make the faces too sharp.
Overall, a beautiful piece of art with some great details, red colours, focus and a title that fit the picture. Nice work!
