As with your previous upload, Varga, there's a lot of processing here - not that it's necessarily a bad thing.

You've gone for a quite flat and pale look, which I find reasonably pleasant, but which some people really won't like. Many techniques polarise opinion...

Very sharp eyes are always good, and the wide aperture loses the background nicely. For others working with wide apertures, this is how it should be done!

The one downside is the highlight at top left - I'm going to do a mod cloning it out. I think this will remove a real distraction, and allow the viewer to concentrate on your model, and your fine technique.

John has said pretty much what was going through my mind. The pluses for me - the very precise, accurate focusing, the soft muted tones. This has a gently retro look - I could guess your location to within a few hundred miles from the processing, before I looked to check! Eastern Europe has moved in a different direction digitally to the West, both in colour and in black & white work, in that you seem to be connecting digital stylistically and emotionally with photography's roots much better than we do.

But having said this, the minuses - on the skin this is way over-processed for my taste, it has lost the sense of contours, surface. And yes, the background highlights top left simply serve to distract the viewer's eye away from what matters. It is important to watch everything that is peeping into the frame, and not just the subject.

I missed your previous upload in the Critique Gallery so a belated welcome from me.

Mixed feelings. The content, pose excellent. The flat pastel colours are interesting in a way but so un-natural. The colour and tonesremind me of home processed Ferraniaslide film from the 60's. As a young chemist, I used to make up my own chemicals on the night shift an the final colours looked much like this.

It is effective. It's not real.

I like the pose and those very sharp eyes. As John says.
I like the processing effect, it is an effective style, 'real' would be more of a record, this has emotion. But, I'd like to see some skin texture, the hand especially looks like a mannequin.
