Very good Gundega!!!

Well done Gundega!

Background is very nice indeed and Alice K looks good too.

But why is she not hands on with the tree - touching it?

It looks as though you've put two images together because there's no inter-connectivity. Sure you know what I mean.

Good effort though.

Great colours with background and dress, I find the pose a litte strange thou

Hi, I love this shot, but after looking at it for a while the model looks like she held the pose maybe a bit too long, almost getting impatient! that aside it's a beautiful portrait, and a fantastic setting, i love the fact her dress tones matches that of the sun setting reflections in the water!

A very cool shot! Great light and colours, I love the themes of orange and pale whites/apricots running through.
The placement of your model within the frame is a little too much in the centre I feel, but my opinion only - this is good work as always.

Wow this is so nice. Everything is working so well together. Love the pose set against the water. Colors throughout are very beautiful, stimulating and pleasing to the eye. Color of her outfit was certainly co-ordinated well to go against the colors of the water. This is VERY NICE. Love the mood. Thanks.


Hi Gundega,

Wow... What an amazing atmosphere. Has the picture been taken on earth ? All is in perfect harmony. Superb !!!


Hello Gundega !

Pretty good study and portrait . I love the matching sky and reflections in the water with the colors of her dress. The ambiance is pretty unique. The portrait is quite sharp, and of course she is a very attractive model too. The light is just superb.

About the composition; I find however a bit too busy the area around her head. Perhaps, you could clean a bit the branches around her. I do do not see the meaning also of her pose in front of the tree like that ... Maybe it is related to the title of her album....

Nevertheless I good photo. Great project you have . lucky man !

Hi Gundega. WOW! What a hi-q photo you took here, beautiful model and I like the way all the colors blend and match here. TFS.

Lovely shot, good subject, I like how her dress matches the reflections in the water. Good clarity and sharp details. Nice setting for you BG, looks like a dreamscape. Well composed. TFS

Fabulous Idea, Gundega. The character merge with surrounding, almost like due tone effect. Great mood.


I like the photo. The colours complement each other.

I wonder about how this technique of colouring was acheived. Pouvez-vous me l'expliquer?
It's beautiful and once again, captivating.
Take care,
