one element that makes this piece stand out is the the barely controlled energy of the model. the position of her arms, her expression, the swirling of the snow and ice, all contribute to the overall impact.
another part is the inhumanity of her, with her dark eyes and unnaturally pale skin, she gives the impression of unnatural energy (ice goddess, perhaps?) that has just been unleashed, as evidenced by the remains of cloth on her body.
her expression is what makes the piece, in my opinion. the absolute lack of any and all emotion or movement that defines a human being only serves to emphasize her distance from normality.
a truly terrifying force indeed!
What do you think?

The composition and lighting on this is dead on accurate. The blurring effects definitely convey blizzard conditions and the grey shaded background helps create a sense of cold, isolation and dread. The character's costume and make-up are amazing, especially the blackening frost-bite effects on the hands. The model is posed very well and I am impressed with the details of her appearance ,especially the facial make-up particularly the eyes. My only real grievance with this, is that I wish it was a full body study. Overall this is a great piece that really is quite evocative of the stark power of a Northern Winter.

I live in Wisconsin where the temperature is slated to hit a -35 F wind chill tomorrow. This image perfectly captures how these days feel around here.

I lack the skills to properly offer a critique, so I will only say:

I don't know art, but I know what I like. And I like that.

I have a 3 year old that's really into spooky things. He saw this picture and was like 'click that!'. He made me go through a large section of your gallery while he 'ohh'ed and aww'ed' and suggested things that the models were. This one he believes to be a ghost. He really liked it. ^_^

Wow. What an incredible piece. I love everything from the ashy skin tone to the frost bitten hands (frost bitten hands ARE black right?) right down to the ice blue eyes. I would like to critique it more but how do you critique perfection?-
