This woman has the kind of smile that makes others smile with her. Mischievous, and wonderfully captured!

I thought this was a self-portrait by Jutilda! Lighting is strong, but a "semi-candid snap?" Hardly.

She looks beautiful, Ron, and I think you did a great job capturing her essence. I think it should have finished higher, but oh well, what else can I say? Wonderful shot!

It's a nice portrait, all the black looks interesting, something about the lighting seems a little harsh to me.

Nice smile and lovely smiling eyes too.

face seems a little concealed to me, even though your title is "hiden"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 07:38:15 PM
Ahh, her eyes are clearly smiling as well! :)

Don't assume that because you have an affinity for your subject, the rest of the world will too. Otherwise, nice semi-candid snap.

Despite the title, I still want to see a bit more of her mouth. What a pretty woman! Eyes are nice and sharp and I like the playfulness of it... I just want to see the mouth, too.

Nice portrait. The lighting is lovely but overall lacks a little dynamic or contrast.

Beauiful love the lighting and clarity.

Good use of the black jacket along with the background make this skin tone stand out.

I love the sly smile; sort of a Mona Lisa smile. Nicely processed with good tones on the foreground and black background, but still the black jacket stands out.

lacks a bit of contrast. besides that well done portrait
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 09:57:51 PM
I think this shot would be more powerful if not so tighly cropped. Showing her whole head against the black background would have been more effective, IMHO. Nice sheen on the coat!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 09:19:32 PM
Great capture. Does not look posed at all. Her eyes sparkle and the smile looks genuinely happy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Good shot.

She kinda has a mona lisa type smile to her. A small smirk that makes you wonder, just why is she smirking?!!
