Hi Sjoerd and welcome to TL. This is a marvelous image! It is sexy with a great composition. You may want to think about posting a larger image next time. TFS, B

This is really good, i see you've studied the shot before you took it... nice work.

The only minus goes for the size... you can post to 800x600... your' too small


very moody; I like the PP effects; let's see some more regards, ck

Excellent shot, composition, colors and the model is fant6astic in my opinion.

I am looking foreward to seeing more of your photo, being 4x5 and all,

very good photo, Keep it going.

Very good first post,Sjoerd! Welcome to TL! Michel

hello Sjoerd, this is a nice one to step in with!
The lighting and compo create a special atmosphere.
I like the result of your use of techniques.

Misschien de volgende foto wat groter?
Met Adobe en "save for internet" kan je tot 800 gaan, en toch onder de 200kb blijven.

I can't say why...
The photo didn't appear. I just saw the thumbnail. But even there, i could say it's wonderfull! The light seems very well balanced!
It's the first time that happen for me... I will come see later. But i can give u point right now... anyway :o)

Welkom op TL
Ja dat is binnen komen met een foto zoals deze. Absolute top kwaliteit. Maar een nieuweling kan altijd een tip gebruiken denk ik. Niets over de inhoud en kwaliteit natuurlijk die is top. Maar de afmeting die je up-load. Zorg er voor dat hij 800 x 600 of daar omtrent is maar wel kleiner dan 200k (beter groter met minder kwaliteit, zie je op die afmeting toch niet) dan zo klein met top kwaliteit. We zien dergelijke foto’s toch het liefst zo groot mogelijk. Dank voor het met ons delen van deze mooie foto en veel succes.

this photo is something special

Your technique is professional. I think that I have no much to say like critique. It's near to perfect.

Strong photo Sjoerd, making effective use of colour / B&W combination.

Excellent photo!! Great work!

This is beautiful and my favorite of yours by far. I think I would have liked to have seen the image scaled up a bit though.

The pose and hight of the camera is spot on! The technique used to bring the colour back is also cool.



I like thsi a lot. The expression on her eyes are very strong and "firm"... I also liked the touch of colour you gave to the picture. And she's beautiful...
Well done

Take care, Stef

Again, this is outstanding work. To bad you posted such a small version of it.
Great composition, great use of DOF (as far as I can tell)
I'm no fan of selective seaturation, people tend to overuse it, but in this photo it works very well and (this is something I normaly don't say about Sel. Desat. Photo's) it adds to the whole image.

Great work, you are an ispirator!

Splendid shot Sjoerd! The composition is superb the light well balanced...but why so small?

Great composition and tonal value
Great work

I don't know how i missed this earlier.Black and white is just perfect here...B&W is always a favorite of mine. Superb tone and texture...i wish it was bigger in size. Well done.

beautiful mood and composition here
love the tones in your b/w
only wish the image was bigger, i'm sure the prints of this photo would be awsome :)
