Excellent shot Gundega. You described the feeling inside the body through the shattered emptiness of the room.

Hi Gundega,
Pretty nice blend of shots! The artist value of your creation is quite impressive. The background is quite nice with it's exposure and DOF and beautiful lighting. The drawing on the wall is really cool to match the girl on the chair with the tattered room giving to her mood.
The blurring or soft edges around the model with this kind of work should try to be less noticeable. Great work though!


the mood is terrific!this is really great pricture, and touching full of emotions.
great work!

What a nice nice photo. So atmospheric, so gentle chosen light, pose, composition. The eye have natural travel through the photo and finish at the window. Great view.
Good chosen colours, on the edge to be sepia, but more alive. some would say that light on her hair is to harsh, tehnicaly maybe it is, but I love it here, like ligh spot with great meaning in all this sconography.

Perfect use of light
excellent photo

Great harmony among several elements, it is very well performed indeed, perfect light and POV.



sureal and beautiful. Almost too perfect! ;) But seriously it is a masterpiece. Very nice lighting and sharpness. great photo. JP

I love this image. Again the overall theme, the tones, the mood. The vignetting adds to the mood. Very good work!

I think you work is really great! You deserve more than 2 points for this one in particular! The light, the shades, the ambiance...it is really good. The mood, in every pictures, is strong and really "poignant"...

I really like your portraits here...just go ahead and TFS with us!

Wow!! what a fantastic image and great composition.

I really like your unique style


Very nice colours, POV, crop and PP

I know that Photography as an Art is considered by most to be explained by the viewer. But I am wondering what you had in your mind when you take your photos. What is the compeling reason, or the brief and simple description of your day when you take each photo. Your images are all so thought provoking, I wonder what yours are. But I do agree with Lisar: "...the feeling inside the body through the shattered emptiness of the room. "

Great works, Gundega!

Beautiful! where do you get your ideas though?

Hi Gundega,
great photo and model.I like the composition.

Wooow so wonderful!

Do you see all the people who have congratulated you on this shot?
do you see all those who chose this as a favourite?
Have you once returned to thank them either in a note or by adding a note or by visiting THEIR galleries?
It is the job of an artist to work with her audience as well as to show her work.
Yes the composition is wonderful, yes the mood is superb -- but a true artist pays attention to her audience as well as expecting her audinece to pay attention to her

excellent picture ...great dark side

great Gundega!!
