This is one of those sets where I wish there was a way to rate it as “I have strongly mixed feelings about this set” rather than as “So-so” or any other the other alternatives.
On the one hand, I would REALLY like to see more sets with that sort of costuming and bondage position (kneeling, at the post, hands overhead).
On the other hand, I would really prefer NOT to see sets that were so strong on the crop, melted wax and other torments. (And the “dutch angles” and large proportion of closeups I could do without too.)
I ended up giving it two stars, but I want to note that the part I liked I really liked, and that I would have liked it even more if there were more (non-dutch-angle) full-body shots from different directions, moving around the model, rather than just from that narrow right-front arc.
I suppose it’s one strength of the forum that we can use it to clarify when our “No Real Feelings” vote conceals that we actually have lots of strong, but conflicting feelings. I have the same response to today’s (21st May) set: “Captured Innocence” The pictures are stunning, Roswell Ivory is gorgeous and the effect is intriguing. The set also demonstrates RE’s willingness to experiment and try new concepts, which keeps it fresh. It’s just that on this one, I can’t see the ropes and feel I have to take account of that when voting on a bondage site.
