Hello Gundega,

Very strong photo for your first participation here.
The tittle of the picture with this red marks in the B/W give a real force to your shoot. It's strange and I like it.
Thank For Share!

i know one latvian girl, with the same name!!
Welcome to TL, dear.
i want to say that your first post is just excellent, so interesting work , and very well balanced contrasts , sepia tones very fits to the gothic composition and
just perfect texture on earth and the walls..
very well done!
take care
hope you'll find in TL what you need.
see you

GREAT!!! I like the mood, the b&w, the composition... a master piece of art! Really well done

This is an amazing pic. I just love it. The red in B&W tone is quite strong.

A real good start at TL....welcome mate.

Wow, a very strong image man! The red blood(?) is such a great touch. Your models pose and the fact she is turned away from us is quite unconventional and it works very well for the dark, macabre mood of this b/w. The gritty, back-alley setting also was a good choice. I hope this is part of a series. It looks promising.

WOW! I love it! Very artsy portrait. I love the contrast and tones. Beautiful job! JP

what a great concept and tone of color, Bravo!!!

I must be honest and confess that this pic disturbs me deeply, which does not happen offten. The heartless atmosphere of abandoment, the cold wall, seemingly torn dress, blood on the wall, faceless person ... Its like a setting for the 'Hunger' movie with Catherine Daneuve, Susan Sarandon and David Bowie. Yes, it is disturbing, what do you expect, I am a male living in the age of aquarius :))

Scared or not, hat down for seeing this in a way that pushes us to think. And you made me think, a lot.


Welcome Gundega to TL and you let show us a great composition...it's real art...and this one become a favorite ;-)
I hope to see more of your work here in TL...I'm looking to it.


very well done, impressive work actually. this almost monochromatic photo contrasts very well with the red paint in the wall

This is an awesome picture! It totally reminds me of a scary movie. Normally I would say you should leave a note but in this picture it might be better without because it lets the mind wander. I love how you only gave color to the "blood."

I think this isn't very original,
I've seen this idea before on the site http://blueblack.deviantart.com in her gallery.
I think that is a pity, thought I can't say for sure this isn't your own idea. Hope it is your style.
Besides that, good use of light.

I have to disagree with merel. This is different and darker that the URL. Dark but yet, with good taste. You know where to draw the line.


A really powerful shot,

Wow - I have looked through your album and you have this "horror movie"-mood in many of your pictures, good work! It looks like I have to go to Latvia one day to shoot some pictures! :o)

an intresting shot.ty for sharing

Frightening and dramatic! It makes me think of a vampire movie, and other tenebrious thoughts.


Great shot. Strange and slightly disturbing (in a good way) for the look of blood from the child's hand. I love the sepia tones. I love the movement. I put in my "Wonderfully disturbing" theme. Have a great day,

Wow another one with awesome shot

this is the first

interesante foto!

Me gusta mucho los tonos, el enfoque y la composicion que has obtenido.

Igual, podrias probar a hacerla de nuevo, pero esta vez con la modelo mirando a cámara.
En fin, es solo una propuesta.

Te felicito, igualmente esta foto me parece perfecta!

Brrrr! C'est beau et c'est terrifiant! Bravo pour la composition, l'ambiance. C'est très réussi.
