John, It as been said many times before, but I will say it again. The comfort your subjects feel in front of the camera, and also you as the photographer, is quite evident. This image feels like we have been given a brief glimpse into her emotions, not merely a brief glimpse of her body.
Good one... ... not much else to say really. A good one!
Thanks everine. There are several more in this series, but they are more interesting when seen together than as individual submissions.
It is indeed a look of lonliness and dejection. To see the emptiness in a beautiful woman in this simple and spare setting is moving. Thanks
Although probably not your intention, a beautiful Valentine's Day portrait. I find the other side of the Hallmark card to be quite emotional within this image. My wife had a drink with a beautiful self confessed lonely woman on this very day. Interesting how an image can represent reality so clearly.

A beautiful, moody and intriguing image, John. I love the lighting and the simplicity of the composition. To paraphrase what others have already said, it gives the viewer more to look into... not just to look at. Very well-done! -Michael
Print it What an amazing b&w photo . The composition , Light and posing are just perfect . This is what Art of Photography all about

Beautiful, John. Simple, compelling, and lovely.
7/7 Wonderful lights and composition. Meditative atmosphere!! Congratulations. 7/7
I love this photo, it reminds me Isabella Rossellini in my favorite Lynch's movie "Blue Velvet"
Perhaps one of the most emotional photographs you have done. The atmosphere is plenty of a sweet sadness, memories, and a decision she must take in a while. This mood is achieved mainly because the great lightning, again, you compose a delicious tale based on a subtle, soft and very clever way of lights managing. Unforgettable John.
Sitting beauty !! Real, comfortably emotive, original.
scalar I would have stood up and clapped for this photo, if only it were not for the almost screaming intrusion of the neat lines of the centre of the photograph by the edge elements. But, still, its a very well done piece of work.
10+10 setting, light, pose, mood, composition all perfectly executed with that very special Peri touch! what a vision! regards!
Lovely imaga John, I like the angle you took.and loneliness pose.great shot
