"Descriptive Notes

Members are strongly encouraged to post descriptive notes with their photos. Notes help provide other members with information about your shot and help them to tailor their critiques to your specific needs. Shots without notes tend to receive less feedback than shots with descriptive notes. "

"The note may include the following types of information:
A description of the subject of the photo and how you think the photo helps other members learn about the world;
Technical aspects relating to the taking of the shot and any post-processing you might have done;
The conditions under which the shot was taken;
Your goal when you took the shot;
Any request for particular feedback that you’d like to have."

"While there is no requirement that you do so, members are encouraged to provide roughly as many critiques as they receive."

From site guidelines.

I am unclear why you use Treklens - it seems to be purely to showcase your own shots and you ignore the community aspect of the site.

strong selfmade portretlike the use of softness

very good selfportrait
the colours are amazing..
impressive work !

wow very nice pp, soft colors...nice pose...I wonder if you could share how you do the softness effect of this shot


Lovely image. Very good treatment with the desaturated colors.

Hi Gundega..nice self portrait..gives me the feel of surrealistic comic book..I like the effect you have created.


Hi Gundega! Another masterpiece! Lovely portrait. Very good pose and facial expression. It's like a painting. I like the lighting and exposure. The tone and soft colors is attractive. Great pp-work.

Hi Sundew....
Your work give always inspiration.....
Very artistic and creative ...

Hello Gundega,
I like the attitude and the color tone you have used here to express the mood you were looking to portray.
There is one item I do not understand, why is it that women do not share their eyes in a photo to others? Mystery, or selfishness? Let me know, good to see you again...

A good self-potrait. Rather different from the usual stuff. I wish you had provided notes on the pp method.

Bonjour Gundega
Cette photo est très belle dans sa lumière, ses couleurs, toute tes photos sont intéressantes, tu sais mettre en valeur tous les modèles qui ont posé pour toi. Ici c'est un auto portrait et je te découvre, toi aussi tu es très belle, visage, cheveux, poitrine...
Petite question : en dessous de ton épaule, entre la peau et le tissu de la robe on voit quelque chose c'est quoi ?

You are a painter, using your camera as your brush. Such illusion! No notes is adds to the mistique, but seems unkind to those of us less talented. Yours in beauty, Karey

I have a problem with the eye focusing on your arm, which appears as a lifeless limb. Since you pp the shots, consider adding some more color, shadow or a tattoo.

Very clever touch with you growing (comming) out of stone. Adds a nice philosophical, greek-classic touch.

Be as it may, there is no doubt that: http://youtube.com/watch?v=wlDmslyGmGI


Hello Gundega,

Excellent. Brilliant use of light, colour and background. Very impressive.
