Excellent Carmela! Moody and the compo is excellent! Such a beauty... Congrats!

Hi Carmela,
The perpetual fight for the perpetual beauty.
Well seen and very well composed.
Best regards,

Good portrait and well captured the "feeling" in this picture. Well done.


Good job and excellent mood! I love the way you emphasised the contrast with blur, almost like real commercial photographer! :)
Composition is excellent event with too tight crop, but that shows the mood and that "helpless" state. Still, the wrinkles on your hand, which looks almost like made from wax are very powerful detail here.
Great job, you're back on home-made shots! Congratulations!


A real funny shot. How we like to stay looking young forever with a battle against time. I like your choice of black and white. Don't worry Carma, you will always be pretty as you were born that way. My daughter also tries the youthfull look, so you are not alone: Beauty Has It's Price

Hi Carmela :-) wow terrific work here.. you've captured perfectly the message and the resulting portrait is really beautiful and profound while still subtle.. i like it very much ^_^


take care,

Interesting image. Good concept and capture.

Carmela, You have captured it very well. Luckily love is not depending on looks.
Your lighting is really professional... very well done!

Impresive powerful shot. Very good.

As it was said already, very powerful shot...

But...we CAN win the fight...it just seems that we're loosing it but one day everything will come on the right place. Good deeds will be awarded and the bad ones will be punished.

Don't worry ;)

Srdacan pozdrav,

Perfect for me...

Hi dear !
Strong message !
A fight that you don't need to lead as you are already owning the endless beauty ! :)
ps : I like your hand on the foreground as I already told you for another post of yours.

Very good photo with good composition. I like the pensive mood of the face.


Hello Charmes
The photograph is excellent, right with the limit of clearness what gives a certain direction to the photograph that I do not understand much. For your explanation, I do not understand more. I suppose that I am stupid.

Perhaps it is more about the faces that we prepare to meet the faces that we meet. I don't exactly know what you intended, but to me it a fight for identity, to keep a face of one's own. What one intends and what finally works out, can be totally unexpected. Am I right?
Double smiley.
Great work, Carmela.

Excellent! Amazing image. Am just back from a break and too much work! I'll go through the rest of your images too. Love your work.
