Hi Christan, this is a very clear shot, so much detail. Although the light seems a bit too strong it also created a warm and vivid look, tilt of the head works for me too. good job, thanks

Hi Christian,
Beautifully crisp shot, the light and skin tones great and lovely framing, she looks deep in thought. Look forward to more postings. Best wishes

I like this photo very much gives impression of deep thought and maybe sadness also. Pretty hair frame pretty face and eyes, they very clear also.

This is honest, simple, with good use of light and good composition-crop-framing - the way your hair forms a complete frame for your face is excellent. Wonderfully sharp too.

I'd be proud to have taken this!

Hi Christian,

A lovely self-portrait of you, eyes deep and very good light without shadows very important in a portrait. A wise choice, you do not watch the screen. "Besides if Rew is happy, that is good. Great job.
Good evening.

Hello Christan!

I can't imagine why you would not want to post this; it's beautiful and interesting! You are an extremely talented young lady, and too young to have a troubled life.

The lighting is excellent here, and your expression is very interesting.

I hope things smooth out for you!


Hi Christan
The angle of your head, colour of your hair and the sun shining on your face reminds me of the Mona Lisa....no kidding. Wonderful portrait!
