Carmen. by saturninus Carmen. by saturninus
The long waiting was worth it! hopefully.

This is the eleventh item of the Mutually Friendly Opera Project [MFOP], a parallel assignment game with Mr =Divadlo. This is Carmen from Georges Bizet's well-known opera, the ardent gypsy girl working in a tobacco factory and causing serious heartache for a young soldier and others.

As her characteristics are very often depicted as blatant commonplaces, I decided to do the same and use only elements that are in the "classical" representation of Carmen (cigar, rose, fan, etc), putting them into a slightly surreal perspective.

full view, please.

Model: Hédi.

Lovely dynamic shot and the sparse use of vivid colouring emphasises her vitality even more.
But like one of the previous comments, the cigar feels out of place--I'm pretty sure you don't dance the Manzanilla with a cigar in your hand. Otherwise, this is a great photo!

It's actually Seguidilla, not Manzanilla.
