Paradise by coffee-and-pepper Paradise by coffee-and-pepper
The continuation of my most famous picture here on dA Courage. Hope you like it as well as the first one! :heart:


Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home
Oh, won't you please take me home
. . .

Even though I try not to over-use photoshop, it had to match to the previous picture in the series. So that's why it's stylized and flawless.

Paradise by ~coffee-and-pepper has a strong and interesting concept. Take note of the position of the fruit and how it ties in with the title of the photograph. Not to mention, the contrast and composition is beautiful. ( Featured by PorcelainPoet )

I don't know if I left you a comment for the first one, but I really like it and I was happy to see that there's a "Part II".

I really like this picture. The composition of red and the pale body is great, and I like the light. It looks a bit more lively than the first one, especially 'cause of the colours.

I don't know whether you meant it to be there, but I quite like the motif of Eva... ^^"

so, to sum up:
Good work!

I was so dissapointed to see so many distasteful and impolite comments on this one... It`s an incredibly beautiful and soft photograph, that feels like painted. The only thing that bugs me, seriously, to be honets, is the actual concept. No, I don`t mean there`s none or it is concentrated on the fact the model is naked and therefore, for the most people, it has a sexual nature. I just think it`s beyond the usual 'Adam and Eve' conception and I look for other perspective and meanings... Honestly, this image haunts my mind... my endless inspiration of interpretation crashes in front of this awe-inspiring picture. Still, congartulations on the DD and shooting an image that makes me feel at a lack of words! :heart:

As many people have said, it relates so much to adam and eve :)
Although for you to get this shot, would the girl posing have to be completely naked? :O

I like this, all though i can see where you edited on the apple so your reflection wouldn't show. But the edit is kind of a good thing because it makes the apple look like it has been covered in a poison or something.

I definitely agree with what someone who previously commented
saying that one reason this picture isn't distasteful
is because it isn't centered around nudity.

Even though some people had the great idea of making
immature and perverted comments.
Very creative and interesting idea~
Congratz on the DailyD!~ :D
