Model is Joceline

Yes she really is taking all her weight en-point on one foot.
I scrambled around like a crazy thing when I saw what she was about to do and managed to get exactly the angle and composition I wanted.

(additional info, the photo is pretty much straight from camera, nothing was photoshopped in or out, she really is taking her whole weight en-point on one foot exactly as you see, no other support, just a dance-studio floor and clear space all round for 10+ feet and nothing from the roof either. For those who are not familiar with Joceline, she's a full-time professional art-nude model with a background in ballet (website - www.joceline.co.uk ) one of the best models in the world.

The lighting: 2x flash heads whiting-out the wall and some of the floor, 1x softbox lighting the model head-on, the reflection is the shadow cast by the backlighting).

Many Many thanks for the DD :D really chuffed!

I recognised this as Joceline amongst a page full of thumbnails purely on the fact that she's the only person I've ever met who could do this.

Magnificent image of a woman who is beautiful on the inside as well out.

Sick nasty strength.

Love the bright background composition, it really puts most of the focus on Joceline's incredibly hard (and mesmerizing) pose, with her reflection balancing the rest of the space nicely. It'd be hard to get a lot of shots of a pose like this so kudos on catching it in such a clean state.

Normally I tend to strongly dislike artistic nudes because the photographer throws out the "artistic" part and only focuses on the "nude", but here this a nice balance: we can see her muscles straining to maintain balance and elegance, thus allowing the viewer to truly appreciate her skill.

I've always found it amazing that ballerinas can do poses like this without snapping their toes in half.

Excellent. It's good to see someone who knows how to use lighting and colours to such advantage. Those ballet positions are always awe-inspiring - (they hurt just thinking about them). Good job.
