So is it just me . . .  
. . . or does the woman in this picture look like she's lying in a pool of blood?

Note: Pic is not graphic, or anyway not meant to be, but it has, to me, some weird overtones.

If the picture isn't there, try this link: http://pics.livejournal.com/janetmiles/pic/0002d8aw/ .

I'm not seeing "lying in a pool of blood."

I am seeing "Uncomfortable pose in an itchy dress" and also clutter.

The blue tiles say swimming pool, but there doesn't seem to be any water. The bouqet on the round tray/table thing is extraneous - we get it already, she's a bride - and the additional shape (round) and texture (wood) interrupt the shape of the model's arm and take up space that would have been better left open, particularly for a magazine cover.

I expect that the red is supposed to read as passion, but from the expression on the woman's face and the position of her arm/hand, all I'm getting is "bad menstrual cramps".

The petals, I don't object to.

Heh. Yeah, I could read that as "bad cramps".
