Nope, she wasn't painted silver for this, effect achieved with some playing in photoshop. Basicly I painted the image of her over the top of herself, merged the layers and greyscaled the result. Somewhat time consuming but a pretty funky result
This looks glareful, it really highlights her very well! I don't normally comment on the people are, but I have to saym this is fantastic!
The highlights as well as the moderate chromatic you gave it really makes it look real yet metallic and silver! The pose is magnificent, you should thank the model for making such a conveyant pose! And thank you for the effect you put into it! Lovely!
I love the picture; she does look very strong and sensual. And the silver effect is awesome, though I can't help but feel that silver effect is somewhat muted by the lack of any other color in the picture. With a casual glance, it looks like a black & white photo. Regardless, it's a great picture, as so many of yours are and what I find the most eye-catching upon closer inspection is what looks like a very slight radiance about the edges and curves of the model. Perhaps that makes it more beautiful: the transitive perception from black & white to silver glow.
Yeah, it is "just" a black & white photo. The silver effect and the effect you are talking about (the halos) are both side effects of the photoshop technique I used to "paint" in the lighting (kinda - it's hard to explain) in this pic
