Let me just start off by saying that I am in love with this photograph. I love the way the contrast is achieved between the softness of the woman and the grungy concrete pillars, wall and iron bars. Giving it a hint of a caged beauty kind of feel. I love the way the light falls on the side of the edge of her arm and the detail in the movement of the hair as well. I love how I can feel the wind through this photo as well as pick out every single strand of hair from what I see. But, if I were to change anything at all. I would have loved for some pose from the way her hands weren't so stationary of lazily laying by her sides. At least the arm on the left side which is the right arm for her. And maybe a bit of tweaking with the tones to better bring out the subtler shadows across her skin instead of just parts being white or plain. But still, overall, I love this photograph and the choice for the lady as well. In a few words, she is beautiful. Just love the feel of the photograph if I were to say it in a few words. Keep up the good work.
This is very well done photograph. I find two forms of movement, the wind creating a right to left pull bringing your eye to the left of the image, once caught by the eye you are then brought along the lines of the shirt left to right and down, which creates a nice continuous circle flow through the center of the image, only pausing on the eye. Which is a good central focus. The intensity you give the viewer is wonderful. The look, the movement of your hair, the slight separation in your lips, all giving this moment paused in time in contrast to the movement provided by wind against your hair. There is a wonderful tonal range here. Nothing blown out or lost to shadows, with detail in both, as well as a wonderful range in the mid tones to complement the texture of the environment. It is a wonderful contrast of the soft skin, fabrics, and hair to the rougher texture of the stone work. I am pulled between the idea of how this is cropped to perhaps cropping it down a little more, showing less of your torso and a little less on the left hand side, to just leaving it as is. It is a wonderful image as it is though. I've see a lot of your portfolio and this is a fantastic portrait addition. Please keep up the good work.
