Nino’s comments on this image “At first I was hesitant to select this one, but it’s pure glamour, and in that regard it works so well. I like the slightly overexposed background, I like the absurdity of the outfit (yay, glamour!) And the subject face not being seen. Adds a sort of air of mystery to it, and keeps it from being cheesy (which in this scenario could have happened easily). It’s sexy and well produced, and evokes even an odd storytelling element.”
