Sometimes everything just seems to work.

New lens, appointment with A. in the city, beautiful veil-thingy she took with her, clouds in the sky, beautiful light (very nice weather, like it's gonna rain a little bit any moment), perfect make-up, the right click at the right moment, framing is good.. well. Like that.

I love the crop, the candid-like-moment, the look in her eyes.. very very happy with the shot. People who know A,. didn't recognise her immediately. Which I took as a compliment ;)

pp: apply image, greyscale, quadtone, contrast for web, clone, dodge.

Well done on the top 10 finish Hannake...I am looking at Nikon 85mm lens myself...this has convinced me that I need that focal length in the bag

This is such a beautiful portrait. It looks like a magazine cover from another era -- like Life or Look.

Excellent photography of a beautiful girl!

Nice portrait!!

Very nice. If only the crease in the veil weren't obscuring so much of the eye.

Very modern look to vintage vogue...a really nice portrait with great tones!

Brilliant focus, interesting pose and composition by only showing half of her face. Lovely b/w tones.
Great shot, 8.

Simply Beautiful!!

I love this photo. It's beautifully composed and taken. The veil, in particular, gives such an air of mystery, and of hiding. The title is superb, too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/18/2007 08:28:16 PM
love the idea... focus is off and i don't really see a catch light (though i understand half of her eye is hidden).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/18/2007 04:26:55 PM
Looks like Julia Stiles. Pretty.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of my favorites of the challenge...such a great vintage feel to it...you were very successful in the composition & color/tonal processing. *9*

Very nice. I'd crop this differently so that the subject's left eye isn't cut in half and I'd remove the strap in the bottom left.

good focus, nice sepia tone. lights are blown, crop at right is too tight IMO

meeeeee like ;-) Nice work!
