Why the decapitation?  It lends an entirely unfavourable clue as to the intent.

Thanks for looking Walter and Russ. The picture is about curves- I have been looking at the work of Lucien Clergue/ Ralph Gibson/ Francis Giacobetti and a host of others for the last year or so and I like the way they compose, so I this would be a poor first imitation of their work. If this is offensive I sincerely apologise and will remove.

The decapitation and the treatment make it clear to me that this is a picture of a dress, and quite a good one. The way the skin blends with the background is quite wonderful.

Visually, it's more about the necklace than anything else. But it's kind of pointless without the head.

I wonder if the head were included would we bother take a second look. I find it interesting as is.

To me it objectifies the model - making her a mannequin and not a person.  Not my style, but YMMV!
