Butter wouldn't melt until I read your comments lol. A great capture proving that blowing out areas of an image can enhance the overall feel of it. So close to a ribbon and wonder if she were a little less cental or had a tear this would have ribboned Marac (am not suggesting you smack children btw).

But Gary.... there's an HDR challenge next!!!! LMAO

This is stunning and beautiful! I love the simple innocent moment you captured. The flowers in her hair are so pretty and the lighting is awesome!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2009 11:22:55 PM
Expert portrait. Exquisite light.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/06/2009 03:31:03 PM
I can't help but be a little troubled by some of the blown highlights on her right side. It's a very minor quibble though and hardly enough to take anything from the strong feeling of innocence that you've captured.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/06/2009 10:15:11 AM
isn't she precious.. I love the pose... the lighting is perfect.. The highlights in her curly hair really drew me in.. 10 for me

09/06/2009 03:32:04 AM
Awesome light in those curls, amazing eyes, and what a pose!

This is an incredible portrait, bravo!! (9)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2009 08:57:38 AM
Oh My GAWD!! How incredibly beautiful. Haunting. The lighting and her hand. My only nit is that tiny bit of blur/bokeh behind her wrist. WOW - my fav so far.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2009 01:18:50 AM
To begin, your model is adorable ... this is a perfect example of where the pure whites enhance the image rather than making you think something is "blown" in the photograph...... the b/g is perfect, the image just glows ... her expression is ambiguous which I like.. a 9 from me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2009 01:05:25 AM
Just beautiful!!! 10
