Hi Antonio..nice shot..good work with the lighting. Well done.


Hello Antonio,
I like the atmosphere (there definitely IS a "barn feel"), the light, the composition and the pose + facial expression of the model. Concerning the soft focus, though I'm not a fan of oversharp(ened) photos, I would have preferred the eyes to be a little more in focus compared with the hair. I now find myself looking more to the (beautifully lit) hair than to the eyes of your model. A minor issue, though, that does not alter the overall positive impression your photo makes on me.
TFS & kind regards,

  • Great

Hi Antonio,
A great portrait of Kelly. I like the diffused lighting and the softness in this presentation. The crop is ideal for an artistic portraiture. Congratulations for this beautiful model.
Well done for this neat work.

Hello Brudda

Sorry you missed me, I have now relocated to Port St john Florida. Keep the images coming and good luck in Tennessee. A wonderfdul place to live. I just needed beach. I will visit from time to time, Maybe we will do a shoot downtown. Nice capture in the barn. Plenty of those in there. Have a nice one bro.

I do agree with Erik that the eyes could have been more in focus.

Good soft diffused lighting creating a natural look for your subject Kelly. The soft focus works well but I agree that the eyes would a bit more striking if not quite so soft.
Overall a well composed portrait of Kelly.
