I agree with you, this is the way to proceed in Venice! Now for the photograph, I appreciate your capture. The foreground is great, though I would have liked to see a little more background: 1) more San Marco, to recognize the setting, 2) more of the crowd to appreciate your description. Now, I do appreciate the reminder of one of my favourite places in the world. Regards,
Lovely subject, indeed! Part of the problem is that she is so lovely there is a tendency to lose sight of the photograph. Noting terribly wrong, but the 90 degree angle of her left arm and hand is slightly obtrusive Similarly, her hand, knuckles, fingernails require a bit of cleaning up, or at the very least a different positioning so the light does not strike as it does. Perhaps, if her hair were drawn back and did not cover as much hand! This said, I can only join the other viewers with my own pleasant satisfaction of a well-executed portrait. Regards,
No doubt this is well-executed,but I have a question regarding the subject's shadow. To me, at any rate, it detracts from the dream-like atmosphere because it takes a moment to sort out the double (doppelgänger) image. You can check the impact on the chin area that receives some of he darkest shadows on the face, thus shadow and chin seem to blend. Would an elongated shadow have done the trick? On the whole though, the dream-like quality is essentially produced by the foreground. This works quite well, especially through your fine B&W composition. Regards,
Very well captured, without question. Your caption is necessary to understand the shot. I might have thought this is a Romanian beggar's child, and the grenouille might have appeared by chance. Are we not in France, or are we? At any rate, I share your enthusiasm for the Tour (Thank you Britain for the massive interest), and thank you for the caption, it made me smile. Regards,
Although it is possible to redress the tower in post-processing, it would not be the case here because of the satisfying way it is framed. One question remains, however. Should the shadow areas be lightened to bring out a little more detail? As it stands, we have a very strong interplay between the very blue sky and the dark areas. However, to me at least, the interest in this shot is the chance to reflect on various composition aspects and, hopefully, to improve my English. Thank you for this inspiring shot. Regards,
What a superb portrait, indeed. To me, it is a model of the essentials of portrait photography (see Michael Freeman's guidelines). The one think I'd like to point out concerns the subject's hairdo. It might have been checked one last time to avoid the apparent bald spot. It does not detract from the overall aspect, but it does, for a moment take the eye away from the electric gaze of your beautiful subject. Regards,
To appreciate this photograph it is necessary to consider the background as an integral part of the interplay of lights and shadows, and the various textures that ultimately flatter the smoothness of the subject's skin. In this sense it doesn't matter if we see or not her features. To me, it is the visual mood created. There is only one slight problem with the subject's left shoulder, the too obvious all-white left strap and the coloured hair wisp. Rearranged, her hair could have been used to cover the faulty straps, perhaps. Then, if you look at her right ear, there is also a bit of hair that seems to break the lobe. Regardless, from an artistic point of view, composition and all, I just love what you have achieved here . Regards, Paul
A photograph with superb possibilities! I like the way you frame to have the focus on the model's eye. Thus, you obtain a delightfully troubling shot, but, you may be too close to your subject because her face needs to be worked on to remove the much too apparent facial hair. Similarly, the spot to the right of her mouth needs to be cleaned up. I even like the strong colours that contrast with her beautiful hair. Regards, Paul
