Similar to the first photo, the black background in this image makes great shadows that "drown out" portions of her body. This effect definitely makes the photo better to look at and more appealing. The light strikes her hair nicely as well and there are also shadows cast on her hair which looks amazing!
We carry our past with us, to wit, the primitive and inferior man with his desires and emotions, and it is only with an enormous effort that we can detach ourselves from this burden. If it comes to a neurosis, we invariably have to deal with a considerably intensified Shadow. And if such a person wants to be cured it is necessary to find a way in which his conscious personality and his Shadow can live together.- Carl Jung. CW 11: Psychology and Religion: par 132, pg 76
