This is first time i am visiting your portfolio.,. wow.. you are mindblowing dude.. very much creative .. every picture telling the different story..
very unique work though..
I like it..
keep it up

I second Mugush's sentiments. Your stuff is quite original and fascinating. I'm glad I discovered. I just wish you would leave some notes. This one is quite unusual. Linda looks like a relgious icon. She reminds me a bit of the girls you often see in horror films (no offense to her intended) because of the way you've photographed her, with the branches coming out of her head and the unusual expression on her face. Your black and white conversion is superb. Great work. -Hugh


It's my first visit too!
This picture is very original and the model very pretty!
That's right that composition is "iconlike"!

Great comp with the branches, nice black and white, great lighting

As soon as I saw this shot I thought "this is sundew's style!". Really wonderful shot, the mood captured here is powerful. Great in black and white, good contrasts and exposure, and the cropping and framing keeps focus. I like how the shallow depth of field makes the girl pop out and I love how the tree branches all around seem to point to the girl's head. Excellent clarity and textures and detail, very sharp. TFS!

Excellent portrait, Gundega. Great coice of background.

Lovely shot. Really great expression & mood.

amazing b&w photo

inquiet... i like the idea.. the realise.. perfect in my opinion.. are u a witch?

Hi Gundega: I like the religious theme you put across here, the radiating halo and the crucifix icon around her neck, but who knows she might not be an angel but an Imp. I like the black she is wearing that is what makes me unsure of her real nature.... I think technically it is perfect........ marvelous to look at .......Romy

scary portrait !! I like it :)
