Saying "Will you walk into my parlour?" might be just a little too aphoristic and outright nasty if we follow what happened to the poor fly in Mary Howitt's famous poem. Yet I do like the idea...so please come in have a look, I guarantee, you won't suffer too much, at least I sincerely hope so.

  • Dance like no-one is watching

    A good shot, although there seems to be a conflict between flowing skirt an body movement. Had your subject looked at her hand, and had her right leg been a little more forward in the line of her body, you would have introduced a movement forward in total harmony with the skirt. This would have created a great photograph.

    Surprising to say the least! The subject's real hair and skin-colour vanish to create an interesting effect wherein your subject's piercing gaze acts as a dynamic element creating a striking interplay as portrait emerges from light and vice-versa. Cheers,

    Not only is the setting and skin colour excellent (not to speak of the model's arresting look)! But can't figure out the reason for the black patch at the level of the subject's right wrist? Regards,

    Magnificent! Am in admiration of this portrait because, not only for its use of l ight and colour, but because your model's expression is troubling in a way that makes he entire portrait very dynamic. Regards,

    Excellent photography! What a beautiful composition wherein contrast upon contrast, favoured by your technical settings, creates a very subtle image. Bare feet on the sand evoke a first tactile emotion as your subject walks on beach. Thereupon sky and water respond to each other, as does the white of her dress and her facial features. These, through her gaze establish contact with the viewer. Through the motion of her arms, her hair becomes a subtle reminder of the ocean's waves as all the elements come together to create this ethereal image so reminiscent of Aphrodite. Bravo,

  • The exhibitionist

    "Rose is a rose is a rose" wrote Gertrude Stein. How true, counting the number of views this image elicits, a "name" is enough to invoke the imagery and emotions that are associated with it. Here, your combine two archetypal subjects, the result is rather interesting because your thoughts on the question of an adult warning have found their target. Need I say more? Regards,

  • Welcome Lysandra. I think you hit the jackpot straight-away, the illusion is complete. With photographs like this (on facebook as well), I think you have a great future in front of you. Do try contacting in Paris Le Monde's weekly magazine M. They often feature photographers like you! Good luck,
