nice picture. the composition is good and the unsharpness, blur/movement, is beautifull done. i only have a little critique on the lightning, i think that the arm and back are to light it's bleeched out, a bit more detail there would make it better.


What a good moody portrait again from you...this one of the best of your portrait serie...they become better day by day. You are a real good photographer...believe me Viktorija ;)


Great shot, Vik! Love the light, at the same time intimate and harsh. One of your best!

A great imag Viktorija,
Very expressive, emotive and strong feelings.
I like her hair, in two colours...
I also like the soft focus ans strong contrasts. Gives a feeling of movement.

Wonderful work dear.

Take care, Stef :))

Amazing shot Vik. I like the blur a lot, and the high light at back of the body. Perfect work!

Excellent! Another fantastic and emotional image Vik. The high key combined with the blurry shadows is outstanding and makes this image what it is. STRONG! The composition is fantastic and very emotive. I agree as well... one of your best Vik and another fav!

Love and Peace with every emotion

P.S. It seems to me that you learned some things from Edie. :) and put them to wonderful use here. Outstanding Vik!!!

Moving different direction? Seems like changes are on the horizon ...

I love it when space is used to point out to certain mood of the subject. Yes, eventually I would like to a stronger delineation between the shoulder and body, but that is me playing smartass critiquer. Truth to the matter is, the best part of this one (and many other of your shots) is the applied deliberate technical imperfectionality that makes the whole scene seem ordinary, normal and easily understandable.

So, c'est magnifique.



Deep emotion !

And emotional shot !



Interesting, emotional and well done on the whole eventhough the whites are overexposed and the overall image is blurry. Nice ;o)

Intriguing shot. Very well composed, great contrast.

Very beautiful, Vik, and very strong emotions. There seems to be a certain sense of despair with the person located in the corner of the room in a very dejected position. Nice light & great treatment as usual. Well done!

Sorry, my bag is empty!
