OK, I can appreciate great photography, and I will simply say I am drawn to this photograph, but will stop short of trying to analyze it. Good work, Ordo!

I believe it is due to PP that it appears to be missing and to what point it is trying to make, makes absolutely no sense to me. It is a distraction for me and basically ruins an otherwise excellent photo.

I have to agree with vIZnquest. It is a powerful shot .... until you notice that her legs are missing, then that mystery spoils an otherwise excellent great image.

BTW - the character means 'Fo' (in Pinyin) or Buddha.

Thanks for the comments and sorry the delay to replay.
I was out of town for the New Year.
OK. Here're the legs:



Chose what you like the best. Me myself, i do not have an opinion yet. Your critiques and remarks are very useful to me.
I would like to try something different in photo storytelling (always related to powerful images), but obviously I have a long way to go.

Well you have to leave her legs in but I can see why you wanted to take them out ! Maybe you could PP her shoes to another colour ?
