Fight for exceptions

Shot with Phase One P45+ on Contax 645, with Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 45-90/4.5, perhaps one of the best zoom lens ever made, in term of optical excellence, and machined and assembled beautifully.
The shot was for Sunny Rose. Here the lovely American model posed beautifully, with a little twist of her body and a nice display of the bag. This could have been better if it was shot nude (OK, still with the bag), but then again, the nude image will be of so limited exposure for the public that the usefulness of the image is also reduce.  In commercial world, image was used to promote the merchandize, sometimes, the best interests was not how good the image is or should be, but how well the image can be used for the benefit of commercial purpose. Of course, there are exceptions, and most professional photographers fight for those exceptions, and to do the exceptions.
