    An interesting pose, especially with the arms. I can't help but think how this might look if it was radially Photoshopped so that she had another pair of arms.

    A rather bizarre thought, I have to say.

    Great portrait -- I love the range of tones in it.

    Seen in 3-2-1 (?)
  • Oldvidhead PRO 9y

    Very direct. Love the stripes against the gray background. Beautifully lit. A real success.

    @sharply: I can't really visualize what you mean...any examples?
  • pinkfown 9y

    Really nice portrait !!!!!!!
  • sharply_done 9y

    @Urban: I can picture another pair of arms coming out of the triangular areas, perhaps holding/framing her chin, or maybe coming out towards the camera. Something like this.

    Hi, I've chosen your photo for the competition of the week at Scientist Photographers group, you can follow the scoring in the discussion section of our group! Good Luck!

    The light, model, symmetry..ha ha this is fun and quite beautiful portrait.

    A favorite.
  • Stefan Engstrom PRO 9y

    She is very photogenic and you should definitely do more portraits with her! The photo has an incredibly clean and crisp look that I really like. There are three small things that could improve this IMHO: less air on top; not seeing the back of the chair; some tonal range on the table to take away that floating in the air look. It is a very symmetric composition but for some reason that seems completely immaterial to me for this particular shot (I don't have any generalized preconceived notions about symmetry and centering in composition). I would be very pleased if this was my shot.

    Thanks very much!
  • Thomas Jones 9y

    Awesome portrait. There could be a little bit more light but besides that it's great!
  • Gespür für Licht PRO 9y

    Wonderful model & light but I still miss a clear focus. I suspect camera shake
  • Sonny PRO 9y

    Hilarious suggestions.

    You get the feeling that some people really think that pin sharp focus is necessary for all photographs, that all areas of an image must have a certain level of tonal detail etc.

    I suppose those without talent are eager to cite technical “flaws” in hopes of bringing good work down to their level.

    Folks....are you aware that some people look at photography as an art, not a science? Imagine if oil painters were held to your would be a pretty boring art world...

    @Sonny: I am all content and not very technical. Technique faszinates me, because: If I set up 45 minutes for a shot its simply disappointing to see that if I need it in big I have to do the whole setup again. I support your point in general that there are many people who are all technical and no content. But this one is not for me ==> invitation to have a look at my pics.

    Sonny, are you aware that some people are trying to analyze what works and what could be better about an image?
  • JmartL 9y

    Gorgeous lady!
  • Lesstimeonlinein09 9y

    Great shot, pretty woman.
  • Djof PRO 9y
