I was at the coast with my daughter taking pictures of the scenery when I turned around to see this young woman about 10 meters away. This was just a lucky shot. The light was right, the pose was right.

Very original image, I like both the idea and the end result. A lovely portrait thatís not quite like all others.

This photo has some thing special,
like the colours, and spatial feeling.
The girl helps as well.
Best Wishes.

very natural photo , very good expression and nicely composed.

Creative composition and a very nice candid snap - as you say, everything was right and it looks great!

Hi Roger,

Nice shot! Great pose and expression of a girl:) Very effective!

Hi Roger,

Nice portrait shot, great composition and nice expression with the girl too.
Is this a studio portrait ?
The lighting seems like studio light.

TFS and regards,

Hello Roger,
Creative composition!
Good details and a nice presentation!

When it attracts to ones eye it means that every thing is in perfect position and place so here I can find that, TFS.

Hello. I like the treatment of this one. I bet it also good in B&W.


Hi Roger,

Good pose and I like the empty space. (could also be used for an add?)
Judging by all the previous critiques I start to doubt my eyes, am I mistaken or is the women slightly out of focus?


(out of greenies)

Great shot and wonderful perspective
