Hi John My eyes got stuck on this image, for a lot of different reasons, to start from its the look on her face and then because she is looking out of the window. It leves a lot of space where to dream and imagen whats beyond that window. Ye i must agree that the cross is a plus, but two things dont really impress me, the frame behind her head as the head loses definition. Secondaly the fact that she is centered in the middle, not cos of the thirds but more cos of depth into the photo. Personally i dont find that the left side of the photo contributes to any thing in the composition. I took the liberty to ps the image and as i am a lover of B&W i converted it too although i love the particular colours of this frame. Great work and i will shourly look you up again for inspiration and creative ideas George Saguna
John, Great contrast here. I particularly like the cross against the breast. It works well with her facial expression. Kudos to you both. Jim Phelps
I tried to change the file but it was distorted by the software, so I had to change the pic .. sorry .. Les, here is the copy/post of the comment that you left ..

Good use of the location, different mood from the previous image of her and the medieval painting. Pose is a bit unconvention, but she pulls it off well.
John Beautiful, excellent lighting and colors. Alberto
Another great gift for us!...Ciaomau!

Duality This photo exhibits a quality that I really like in much of your color work... the subtle mixture of different colors of light. I like the way that the overall cool tone of this image is offset by very gentle warm tones. This duality is nicely shown in the colors of the model's skin compared to her eyes. The photo suggests another duality, too... The model's pose, with her shoulders leaning forward and downward, and the large dark-colored necklace seem at odds with her eyes and the direction of her face as she looks out the window... suggesting the conflict or tension between religion and sexuality.

incredible as usual and so signed by your so loved regard on women best wish for 9 John and please continue to open wider our eyes on your so sensitive work balthazar M
I love the gentle light , Excellent . I prefer the b&w version
Thank you friends. I have been away and could not reply ealrier. As for the bl and white version, thanks. It is similar in crop to what I tried, other than it is darker and I like it thi way.
beautiful I like the BW version even more She has such a great look And she is so pretty In matter of composition, I would prefer her a bit to the right
yes,, but I now discover the horrors thatI have been posting while on a laptop ... :-) Thanks Marc .. I'll try to change the files ... they don't always upload though ...
Best of the three imo. This one has something more: the mood - together with the aesthetical qualities. And I like the fact that everything - including her is a bit hanging in an awkward way - icon, curtains... Cheers.
