Good one, Claudio! But I think the bar in the foreground is a bit distracting. I like the exposure though!

Thanks for sharing,

Hi Claudio,
What a beautiful portrait. Softness in the tones and mystery in the expression. Very good POV and exposure. Very well done! Annie

A very beautiful shot, technically very good but also a lovely capture of expression through the painted face. Colours are real and subtle and the light is exquitiste, I don't know how you managed to get it like that?!
Great work

Great light... Very sad beautiful expression. The background is exquisite as well.


She doesn't look truly 'happy' and you caught that just right, Claudio.

Hi Claudio.

Truly a wonderful capture.
