Wow ! Partial de-saturation!
fine portrait !
ISO 6400 and higher, is exremely high (especially in night shots) for most cameras, yielding almost unacceptable IQ. More realistic and sufficient, I 'd suggest, is ISO 3200-4000 or more.
I was sure there was a story and deep love, by looking at this photo and voted for it my highest vote! It speaks by itself! Reading the story, I also see, you are also a brave and kind man. Congratulations.
thanasaki: A really touching photo, talking by itself!
Indeed! Her hands is the most important (and also touching) part on this photo!
Wow ! That is the word for this wonderful photo!
A really touching photo, talking by itself!
thanasaki: A very good high key photo with an artistic value. IMO it deserved a much better place in this challenge.
please accept my sympathy. At least, this photo is a good memory of her lovely eyes and a passport to heavens.
Beautiful photo ! Pity that "birds" and "flowers' are the only favorites in this challenge series
At last, something seems to go on again on changes in challenges and in the fora. PLEASE, do something on the challenges voting system, by elliminating the negative voting (sandbaggers, cheaters and insane people) Personally, I 'd suggest a "photographic" voting system on challenges, based on "points" collection, nammely:half star + 1 pointone star + 1.4 pointsone _ half star + 2 pointstwo stars +2.8 piontsthree stars +5.6 pointsfour stars + 11 pointsand finally five stars +22 points
Beautiful photo. Really "she".
Beautiful photo. Congratulations for the deserved win!
Very Expressive an very well done. Keep up the good work!
Steve Throndson: There were some excellent portraits in the challenge. This one stood out because it reminded me of Paul Strand's 'Young Boy, Gondeville, France' circa 1953. The same direct expression - although not as intense. Good work!
Very often we do like the same photos, dear Steve. I think, its a matter of a good taste. Cheers!
Very beautiful photo and a ... fantastic title. Keep on the good work!
Excellent capture. Looks like medieval painting.
Amazing and -very- funny! Congratulations!
Wow ! Five half-star votes. My second-best... score!
