The piece sets a palpable juxtaposition between repose and tension. The limbs seem taught and ready while the torso relaxes. Were that the end it would be enough, however the models lazy contempt for the gaze upon her is apparent, magnifying the repose of the piece but increasing the tension in the observer. The palette of the image also emphasises the duality of the shot as the red emphasises danger, attraction and action while the black negates the same; the carefully neutral background does its best to not interfere with the subject and leaves the observer - again - with a sense of tension unfelt by the subject. Well done, I say.
