Hi Marco,

Please accept my heartfelt sympathies on the loss of your grandmother. She is a lovely lady and your portrait is wonderful. I am sure that you will cherish your memories of her and realize how fortunate you were to know her.

I hope your new year is much better.


Ciao Marco quando hai scattato questa foto aveva quasi 97 anni, li avrebbe compiuti tra pochi giorni, ma lo sguardo è ancora lucido e l'espressione serena e mostra ancora una straordinaria bellezza ancora non sfiorita, penso proprio sia stata una donna straordinaria, bel ritratto con splendida messa a fuoco e magnifica espressione, auguro un magnifico 2010 a te e famiglia, ciao Silvio

nice portrait
sharp pic
good pov
good dof
well done

Bellissima la nonna, intensa la vita che si intravede dietro il suo sguardo e quel reticolo di rughe.
Appropriatissimo l'accostamento tra il colore dell'abito e lo sfondo.
Ciao, e grazie :)

Hi Marco..great portrait...nice angle and soft light...perfect focus and exposure. She looks like she was a great woman.
