She looks kind of dangerous, just like her surroundings. Well done!

Your title made me think I'd see Demi Moore (from Ghost). Instead, I'm looking at what looks to be an industrial size toilet!

Nice shot, BTW!

Thanks !

Yeah ! Somebody understood my thoughts . We did go for the "ghostly" images . Hence the dramatic lighting .

Ofcourse it has never crossed my mind to me that clay mixing bowl looking like what you said until now

Nice work Tran.
The image, by her pose and expression, conjures up the suggestion that she may be an illusionist's assistant about to climb in to be disappeared for the big finale.

I like Tom's suggestion of the industrialised toilet, she does look a bit flushed.

Yeah, agree, dangerous woman that leads the detective (or private eye) to all kinds of side tracks in this film noir movie!

Gary - Interesting thoughts . I think she can fit into that thing ! It's very big . We did even thinking of put her in there for a shot but decided not to b/c it would damage her outfit !

Georg - I love the film noir style : low angle , shadowy and mysterious look . Thanks .

Thanks Tom . It depends on the model . Often I like to talk to them first to find out about them and figure their "characters" into the shoot . Some just like to look pretty and some like artsy . Putting a shadow on a beautiful face can be a crime .
