Very good portrait!
Nice framing/composition John! I also like the way her hair dangles down into the otherwise empty space at bottom-left! Her eyes are well caught - they draw me in!
I recently rated one of your nudity photos with double ones and you left me a considerate message at http://www.photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=1732172. I should apologize for doing so without any message. I love photo.net and enjoy viewing other's work. However, I am opposed to nudity even in photographic art. We each have our reasons for our values, but I am frustrated that I am exposed to images I prefer not to view. I wish there was a way for me to use the site without viewing nudity. So I have to tolerate nudity or not use the site. Your image happened to come at the wrong time. I appreciate your comments and will no longer rate photos with nudity, but I am still disappointed. I enjoy landscape photography, but appreciate and envy photography of people candid or staged, obviously not nudity. The image above is beautiful and captivating. I'd love to see more of these in your portfolio.
Gary (SDF?), I appreciate the curtesy of your statement above, but I do maintain that we are not supposed to rate pictures because of the subject matter they contain but for their merit as a photograph. I will not harp on the matter as I believe that you have understood that now. Best wishes and thank you once again, John
