Greetings from the Critique Club :)

Hi mag...

Anita certainly is a beautiful model and I always enjoy seeing the photos you produce of her.

I really do like the high key lighting on this shot. Her lipstick stands out in the brightness, so the exposure is perfect. The bright lighting gives her skin a beautiful and soft milky tone that looks like something I want to reach out and touch :) The wrinkled background also makes this photo quite inviting... The look in her eye.. the unbuttoned sweater... the theme is quite seductive and intriguing.

This shot, and all of your portrait work is excellent as usual... I don't feel qualified to really critique your photos. I like to use your portraits as examples by which I judge others...

Keep up the great work :)

This photo should have placed much higher! I don't understand how people could give it so many 1's, 2's and 3's, it's beyond me.

Anyhow, this is an excellent shot Mag.

I like the strong lighting in this image - it fads everything well. Good pose.

Classic and very nicely done. I think I would have picked an other color for the bra as it's the only pink in the shot and more a 'side effect'. Good shot otherwise. I like the face expression. Maybe the contrast is too strong (shadow too strong botteom left corner). 7 . Lionel

Good picture.
Compositionally I'd like her more centred, horizontally.
Lighting is too harsh for my preferences.

Beautiful photo! At first I thought the light on the right was too harsh but the more I look at it the more I think it makes the photo. The textures are great. Good job!! 8... Cub

Superb image, just the bra strap is a slight distraction. Nude or dressed, it would have made a wonderful image just the same, as it is all in those wonderful eyes and the beauty of her expressive face. The hands work well to add to the image too. The looseness of the jeans adds to the sexiness of the image and is suggestive. The soft colours and slight over exposure makes it work. Too bad the hair was not longer, that always seems to add more lust to this sort of image, I am not sure why? It must be a male thing or maybe it is just me, not sure. All in all, a fine effort by both the model and the photographer. Congratulations. 9 Morgan

What a cute lady!

I'm a romantic believer that you can fall in love with someone just from their picture.

You have certainly achieved this for me with this beautifully composed image. The overexposure of the face multiplies the fair complexion of your subject. Nicely done.

Impressive photograph, but you should have tried to frame your model at an angle to improve a composition and reduce the ambiguity that it is from above

Lovely colors, could be somewhat deeper though.

interesting....
03/18/2003 06:19:05 AM
Good job. I think it needs a bit light to soften the shadow. The border is too much.

I like your subject and the way you have her hair fanned out, nice choice of colours for clothing, including her lipstick and provacative piece of pink bra.
The focus is right on, her eyes really catch your attention. . .
But that white bed sheet with the bright lighting seems to draw the attention away from her. . .

I like the overexposure of this photo, but it looks a little too
contrived. Very pretty woman.
