It's really hard to match the resolution and clarity of a FF camera like the 5D. Provided you have a good glass, and know what you're doing, it can work wonders.

And apparently, you know what you're doing ;)

Excellent use of light, and a wise decision to go for b&w. I don't know if the broken window was intentional (i.e. if the model was placed there in purpose) but it works, compositionally.

Fantastic atmosphere for this beautiful lady and her surrealistic look. Technically I like the tones of gray and the short deep of field. The highlights are in the right places. Good, very good work.

czesc piotr!

piekne miejsce to taki macie ladny dworzec w glogowie?
super modelka:D


Piekny portret, swietnie wykonany. Gratuluje!

Hi Peter,
This is a wonderful capture. I love the B&W color choice. The DOF is nice isolating the beautiful woman. Nice reflection as well. Nice work.

I love portrait photography. This one is a classic portrait. Excellent black& w white tones. Beautiful attractive model and nice clarity.


Absolutely stunning portrait
Great idea with the reflectin in the windwo, and the depth behind her.
As chrysalis already said, impecable resolution and clarity.

Peter, perhaps you can help me out on this one : I've noticed on many photoforums on the internet that the best portraits and b/w's are more less then often by Polish photographers. Is there any explenation for this mindboggling kind of work ? Or is there something in your watersystem that boosts photographic talents ? :)


Hi, Peter!

Excellent shot! Composotion, Lights and tones- perfect.

Świetny strzał jak dla mnie Mistrzostwo
nic dodać nic ująć...

Excellent shot, love the reflection of her face in the window. Great composition, stripes on the shirt matching the stripes on the window and background, black and white works well, crisp focus - really good work,

ciekawy portert, odbicie dodaje smaczku! gratuluje


what a shot you gave us, it is really a poetry and is is also so "skilled" photographically..



Hi peter
Fantastic, beautiful model, excellent pose and love the B&W touch, very classy indeed. I've had a quick look at PF and their is some very stunning work there, I look forward to having a better look through when I have more time. TFS



light is well managed, composition is more than excellent, interesting choice to show perspective and space on the left side

Very nice. Good placement, great light, great location and awesome DOF.

Grande composiçăo e usio de contratstes nesta excelente foto. Bela modelo, pose e profundidade deste trabalho minucioso. Grande foto.

Hello Peter !

Certainly a very High Standard of Potography once again. I love the composition , her pose, against the window, meticulous POV to ensure you captured her reflection in the window. Stunning clarity on both side of the window. I also added yours in my favorite portraits.

Althought I admire your wonderful work, and Portfolio, and you are mastering your art very well, I wish you would be more active in taking time to write to fellow memebers. Your feedback would certainly be greatly appreciated by many of them.

That being said, once again, you are a very talented photographer !


Der Peter Motzart!
Amazing girl.
Adela is wonderful.
Nice pose.
Good scene.
Very nice picture.

A stunning portrait! The setup is perfect with the reflection and the model placed perfectly on the third of the frame. The tones in the black and white conversion have a very nice feel as well. Excellent work!

HI Peter..excellent shot..great pose, composition and details.


Hello Peter,
Beautiful portarit shot and very nice BW tones.
The bokeh on the BG and her slight reflections are really interesting to see.
Very nice composition. :)

No, no! tylko pozazdrościć modelki. Ładna panienka. Zdjęcie też dobrze wykonane. Ciekawie to odbicie w szybie. PKP raczej łączę ze smrodem i bródem. A tu proszę... Może być inaczej...

Salam Peter

Very nicely composed and exposed image with some very nice detail and really excellent colours.
