Hi Denis.

Impressive mix of light and texture.
The heavily made-up girl, her pose and the musical instrument sit well together. A pity the microphone was in shot but matters little from the overall composition, I like the balancing back tones.
The piece of metal that appears to hang from her eye needs removing though.


Hi Denis,here's where I'm going to learn something, by doing a WS,which I have probably done wrong,as I'm not that familiar with shooting any type of subject in this type of light.I would imagine your posting is spot on,but to my eye, I thought that the models right arm was a bit overcoloured due to the reflection off of the instrument or from a coloured light in front of her?so I unsaturated the arm slighly to get a more natural colour, similar to her shoulder,but I'm guessing that was not the right thing to do,no?it would be have been better to leave it as you posted,yes? To me the background was a tad to sharp,though I like the bright silver on the strap as it keeps ones eye from moving out of the scene,anyway I did a small blur to see if that would take the eye off the background & back to your model Ok now your turn to educate me if you have the inclination:-)

Hi,she looks as abstract as music itself.I think you did a fantastic job here.Colors,sharpness and composition all excellent.All the best,Otto.

Bonjour Denis

I like representations of cello and bodypaintings (you took a lot of them)are often impressive.Both, here work well in a nice crop and composition.Ron's workshop brings a little more natural colour of flesh on the arm.
