The strong connection of her eyes makes me feel that there is more to this then your usual nude work. I like the dynamics added by the tilt in what is otherwise a fairly passive image. Necklaces, especially metal ones, are a favorite of mine and always, in my opinion, look better against skin. The lighting is very flattering to her.

Really nice lighting David, and I like your model's expression!

The sadness may be subdued but her beauty is not. Beautifully done mate.



Pierre Dumas
Fantastic portrait of a beautiful young lady!

And sad, as the caption says! To be serious, I also see that hidden sadness, I've seen it many times!


Best regards David!

Mark, An interesting comment. I used to always tilt the camera. I have cut back on that practice lately. However, I am glad someone has mentioned it. Thanks.


Pierre, I think I just pressed the shutter at the wrong time. (I don't think she is really sad.) I hope not anyway.


Michael, I like to keep things simple. It is good to know someone appreciates it. Thanks a lot.


Owen, I think I would have to agree with you there. Thank you.
