A very accomplished work, this. I differ from the consensus, this photo HAS to be in color. Thanks for showing this David!
Jim / Apurva Jim, I know what you mean. Honest! I do! I wasn't meant to be taken too literally. That said, Apurva's comment below yours does make me happy.
Apurva, Thanks a lot. I do agree with you... but then I would, wouldn't I?
I like this photograph very much. The yellow clothing is a nice compliment to her skin tones and the pink lipstick. Covering her eyes is unusual in a portrait but it is effective here. I also like the position of her hand and how you kept just enough of her arm. I don't quite get the title!
this photo a good meaning in my mind
Very good !
Jim / Mark / Pedram Jim, What a wonderful comment. You are right in so much of what you say. Interestingly enough I will probably upload another picture of this lovely lady later and all will be revealed. You might not like it though as it will be in colour. On that subject, this is one that I didn't convert to look at in black and white before uploading it. I am really not sure why. Even with comment persuading me to have a look, I will hold of for now. Thanks a lot.
Mark, Kind words. Thanks for them. The title is a little far fetched. I was going to upload another picture where the title would have made more sense but the image wasn't so good. I decided to keep the title. Strange! I know but that's me.
Pedram, Thanks for stopping by.
David. I like it even in color. ;=))) -Owen
Owen I am getting tempted to convert this to b&w. ARGHH! What to do? Thanks for stopping by.
Biliana Thanks for coming back and giving more words. The tone of your second comment here is slightly more appealing than your first comment. However, I do believe you are under some illusion. Any photograph of any subject is just that. You are kidding yourself if you believe that you capture sensuality in your own images. You do not! You capture what is there in front of you. If you want to believe that there is something more in your photographs that is up to you. For the record, I do believe this image to have some sensuality in it but that is only my belief. Your comments are accompanied by statements that you are a woman. I find this very frustrating. It would be an interesting experiment to remove the identities of everyone on this site and for you to tell me which pictures of women were shot by women. Your comment(s) here suggest to me that you have many issues reagarding men. (Your comment... 'all men do' speaks volumes.) As to this image. I have said all I want to. The title is irrelevant although a little thought went into it. For the record, the model in this image features in other photographs in my portfolio. I have only met her once. We spent a few hours together taking photographs. She was happy with the outcome. I am sure she will be as disappointed as me that you don't care for this image.
Biliana Thanks for taking the time to write a lengthy comment on this image. I often say, if you have to explain a photograph then you have failed. Had you seen this image without the title, what would have thought about it?
It is not just males that comment on my photographs. That said, I do believe there are more males contributing photographs of women to this site and as most men like women, it is natural that more men comment on photos of women than women.
Anyone posting any picture of any subject in a public forum is showing of. That includes you.
You cannot feel the beauty of my ladies. Is that my failing or yours? Judging from your comment referring to my women, "as you represented them like objects and no sensuality nor femininity at all! " well I do believe you fail here too as I see this particular image with a lot of femininity and sensuality. I do feel sorry that you can't see it.
"as I grow like human being, like woman and like photographer, I see more clearly that you Man have no notion how to represent a beautiful sensual woman" Your opinion is based on what? Please do not answer that. I do not wish to get into a debate with you. You are entitled to your opinion. Whether I agree with it or not is neither here nor there. However, maybe, just maybe and I do mean MAYBE I am not trying to represent a beautiful sensual woman. However, I do believe there will be others that disagree with you.
The photographs I post here are for people to comment and critique. If people do not like my images then so be it. I am certainly under no obligation to explain them especially to someone who simply doesn't care.
The seed of life...
Simple but hopefully appealing.
