Well Manuel: A very touching image and I knew it was yours because of the quality and the authencity of feeling that the image conveys with expert lighting. Congratulations on your red.

I like this photo. I can't explain what it is I like about it but it's great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Is this another Librodo special ?? Whatever the case may be it's a ten from me. Intensely emotive portrait. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/19/2004 12:53:18 AM
Very emotive! You bring out the true broken hearted feeling in this photo. Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/18/2004 06:25:15 PM
fine tonalities. The nearly vertical, elongated, left edge of the hand bothers me, especially inasmuch as it's very nearly in the center of the image. I like the slight upward tilt of the visible eye.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2004 11:41:39 AM
I was going to try this image with my daughter but opted out at the last minute as portraiture is not my speciality..and after seeing this, I`m glad I did!!
A captivating blend of softness and clarity with a masterly use of light.
It`s got a 10 from me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2004 12:18:14 PM
Nice job! Like your choice of subject! Fine tonal values!

Returning for comments:
Lovely and touching with tones matching those of Librodo. The pose and the mood makes this an image that lingers in one's mind. An outstanding b/w study. Bumping up.

Nice portrait, although the tear looks a little odd for some reason.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2004 03:58:49 PM
I like the dark tones of this image as it suits the Brokenhearted feeling. The tear drop accentuates the mood. Very well done, Manny.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2004 01:59:22 PM
Beautiful... nicely showed emotion... good capture of softness of skin... just light piece of sholder bit distract.

man. i just love this. i keep comeing back to it. i dont know if this is fake or what but the tears seem very real by the expression on her face. well done and a very good example of broken.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2004 12:49:59 PM
This is top5 for me. Excellent executed. I hope you ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2004 12:42:26 PM
Well done, although seems too sterilized for a broken heart. Where's the runny nose, the blotchy make-up, the million emotions? I'll give it a 7 because it's a great photo but I'm not convinced...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2004 12:32:35 PM
I think this photo is beautiful. The tear does not look realistic.

Interesting composition, nice lighting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2004 02:17:07 AM
Excellent composition. I like the perspective and framing. The model is showing the appropriate emotions to make this one work. Technically aspects beyond reproach. Well done.

There i s a specific sense of sadness in this photograph -- the clarity emphasizes the mood of brokenhearted -- a strong sense of distress.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2004 12:10:30 AM
Know the feeling well. nice tones and use of B&W, subject matter is very good
