Thanks Ricardo, but for good measure I will add that she is an MA student, meaning that she has finished university, so not so young ... admittedly (she will laugh on being reminded of this), I did go to a movie with her recently and the cashier asked if she was 14 .. :-) .. hehe, I paid half price!
Beautiful expression of the model and very nice contrasts in the picture. very well done to you both. Best regards Tore
It's always a great pleasure a visit to my friend John!...Ciaomau!

Superb B&W tones, John ( ... as usual) !! You show us a beautiful model with a natural and adolescent appearance. Great work. Regards.
Nice composition, tones and model John! Kudos!
Thank you friends. This is actually one of the rare occasions that I possibly regret having cut the foot. At least, I think it would look a little better cropped just above the final dark band. That said, if I posted it, it is hopefully in that you may agree that the photo has other merits, notably in the remarkable degree of charm exuded by the model. All that said now, very few people care two hoots about cut limbs and straight horizons, other than a few textbook photographers, except in a case alike the one above where the overall balance may be compromised. Personally, I love walking around exhibitions, galleries and museums and pointing out to friends all the said discrepancies. When you show these to people they become strangely silent, yet these are the works in the museums, not the smiling portraits or the perfect sunset landscapes.
Lovely , I love the location and composition
John. Beautiful and original. Alberto
John, I love the way the socks balance the eyes/mouth here, my eye does not stop moving on this image! Kudos to this beautiful young lady. Jim Phelps
