This is the second image taken for these series which I love.

The different between the first post is this is taken under indoor tungsten/fluoroscene lighting and no flash was use.

I like the hand which hold the umbrella and the diagonal line moving up from the shoulder as well as the "red lips" which just complete the image.

Colour is very well match for the Kimono, red lips and the green umbrella.

DOF might be too shallow to my liking but the model can't repeat the pose hence this is what I have. It was taken when the model unaware of my present. There are 10 more other buddies around.

Hope you like it.

Thank you in advance for any comments.

I think it is a great image indeed, with a very good composition and pleasant colors, aside from the greenish cast on the neck. Since the hands are such an important part of the image, I whish they would have been sharper: At f/40 the movement of the fingers could not be frozen, but I understand that you worked here at the limits of the gear. I'm not bothered by the shallow depth of field; in fact I find that it works quite well.

Hi Hartanto,
Yep I like this tight crop, excellent ballanced picture, great colours. Maybe a tad more sharpness, but the overall impression is fine. Superb posting my friend!

Hi Hartanto
This works well again, I like the mystery you've created in this series by excluding your subject's eyes from the shot. The colours work beautifully, they're strong and rich, and the DOF is perfect in my opinion.

I think the sharpening may be a little to much, it has created white edges where there shouldn't be any; but the overall look of this is highly professional and I truly believe these photos would sell as artworks.

Has captado perfectamente la delicadeza de la muchacha con el recorte y los colores pastel. Le faltaría algo más de nitidez en las manos.


perfect shot.
