By paola1987
I've been trying to organize my life lately, and found out it is not something easy to do, it is like organizing my drawers, it can be so frustrating and depressing at times
I know it's overexposed, but it was the best i could do with the backlight without using a flash, i think i like the washed out effect

Doesn't matter about the washout, this works really well. The look you have with the expression, along with the processing gives it a mood that really brings across the empathy....a really nice image Paola and you definitely get drawn into the mood and idea of the shot. Excellent image

I just like the fact you try new/different things, always a pleasure to see what you come up with next.. instead of saying over exposed call it high key. Smile anyway, what i am saying is i like it Smile
I agree with John, overexposing works well here and i really love composition in your pic and way how it is broken in three different images, building kind of photo essay closed in one frame.

Looks fine to me, a well thought out capture, if this is one of your self portraits, you have done very well to get into the pose, oh to be a fly on the wall to see it happen Smile Geoff.

Organising your drawers can have a different meaning in this country Paola, but I get the drift.

Without much ado you create another great image which is subtle and sexy at the same time, so well done from me.

Your uploads are always so individual, full of strong personality, and that's what I love.
High-key works particularly well with those sugared almond tones - pistachio green, apricot pink.

The composition and high key effect work really well for me. Just one small point: you look a bit orange so maybe white balance out a touch. Having said that everyone looks orange compared to an English milk bottle like me!
Lovely unique work.
